Alternatively, you can also specify the name of the singer or band you are interested in, select the Album option, in order to view their discography, and tap on the cover of the album you want to listen to offline.
At this point, on the album screen, you just selected, all you have to do is press the down arrow icon to start downloading all the songs.
As I mentioned in the previous lines of this guide, it is not possible to download individual songs. However, you can create a new playlist with the songs you want to download and then start downloading the playlist in question.
To create a playlist on Spotify, press on the item Your library located in the menu at the bottom, tap on the + button, at the top right, and select the Playlist option from the opened menu. Then enter the name in the field Name your playlist (you can also avoid doing so by selecting the Skip option ) and, in the new screen displayed, click on the Add songs button.
Now, enter the title of the first song to be included in the playlist in the Search field and, in the search results, press the + button for the song in question to add it to the previously created playlist. Then repeat the procedure for all the songs you want to download.
Once this is done, access the Your library section again, select the Playlist option, make a long tap on the previously created playlist and press the Download option from the opened menu. Alternatively, tap on the playlist name and, in the new screen displayed, press the down arrow icon to start the download. For the walkthrough, you can check out my guide on how to download Spotify playlists.
Please note that it is also possible to download Spotify playlists created by other users. Also, in this case, all you have to do is access the main screen of the playlist of your interest and start the download of all the songs contained within it, by pressing the down arrow icon.
To view all the albums and playlists you have downloaded, click on Your Library and select the Download complete option. Now, tap on the title of the album or the name of the playlist you want to listen to and press the ︎ button to start playing it.
