By owning a Spotify premium account, it is very common for you to download music and even albums to save on your mobile data plan. By default, on Android, the streaming music application ends up saving your library data to the device’s internal storage, which does not always have enough space available.
Fortunately, most mobile phones running the Google system have support for microSD cards, which in addition to having a larger storage capacity, often end up with free space left over. Here’s how to download the downloaded songs in Spotify to the microSD card.
To accomplish this task mentioned above will be a feature of the official application of Spotify for Android. Furthermore, even after transferring the data to the microSD card, the songs remain unplayable in other music players due to the security mechanisms of the streaming platform.
How to transfer songs from Spotify to the microSD card
Before proceeding step-by-step, make sure the microSD card has a good amount of space available since the size of the songs in Spotify vary according to the quality in which they are saved, in addition to number of files that are stored on the device.
Check out How to do.

- At the top of the screen, touch the icon represented by a “gear”, slide the screen down and go to “Storage”. It is one of the last items on the menu.
- On the new screen, touch “SD Card” and in the message that appears, click “Ok”
- Wait for the process to complete.The time for transferring your library to another storage device takes time according to its size and also the quality of the microSD card used. In tests conducted by Digital Look, having a library of approximately 1 GB, the transfer time was around three minutes to be performed.Once the process is complete, you should have automatically freed space on the drive where the Spotify library was saved. In addition, the new downloads made within the application will already be stored directly on the microSD card.
