"I just upgraded to Spotify Premium and I would love to have access to offline playlists while I'm on the go. My phone doesn't have enough memory to store the app and songs, so I'm thinking of getting a portable Spotify MP3 player."
With tons of features & straightforward functionality, Spotify is a great way to get the perfect tune for whatever mood you’re in at the moment. If you're a runner, and you don't want to strap your iPhone or Android phone to your arm, a tiny and portable MP3 player could be just the thing you need in your life. What portable devices support Spotify? In the following guide, we will show you the best 3 MP3 players for Spotify.
"Mighty is the first and only device that plays your Spotify music without being connected to a smartphone. Lightweight, durable, and small enough to clip-on to any piece of clothing, it's the perfect device for your active life. Mighty comes equipped with Bluetooth and WiFi, is compatible with iPhones and Androids, and can play 48 hours of music without any internet connection."
Mighty, equipped with 1,000+ songs of storage, is a tiny and wearable device that you can clip onto your clothes or bag and listen to your Spotify playlists without the need for a smartphone. It looks like Apple's old iPod Shuffle that plays Spotify music without your smartphone. Besides, it also allows you to sync your Spotify music to the Mighty device itself, so you can listen to Spotify music offline.
Spotify has been supporting Samsung watches since the Gear S2, allowing subscribers to control music playback from their wrist. However, it needs to connect with a smartphone. But things have changed since Samsung Gear S3 was released. Now it provides you the ability to download Spotify tracks, albums, and playlists and store them locally for offline playback. (It also requires a Spotify Premium/Student/Family subscription.) In addition, Gear S3 has 4GB of internal storage, so users will be able to store a decent amount of Spotify music when there’s no Internet connectivity.
The Pebble Core is a low-power 3G Android smartphone without a display and crammed inside a tiny box. It can stream Spotify (Premium accounts only), or play off its meager internal storage. It can play a downloaded Spotify playlist from its 4GB of built-in storage as well as supports Spotify streaming over 3G thanks to the Micro SIM card slot that's built into the device.
Now, most mp3 players can't support Spotify as it needs to be an internet-connected device with the ability to run a Spotify application. If you have a portable MP3 player but can't work with Spotify, you have to use third-party software, like Sidify Music Converter to download music/ playlists from Spotify to your local computer and then transfer them to your MP3 player for offline playback.
