    Spotify has increased the maximum number of offline downloads a subscriber is allowed as well as the number of phones and computers they can be stored across at any one time.

    According to Rolling Stone, it was Spotify users who initially discovered that the limit on downloaded tracks has been raised to 10,000 songs per device, up from the previous cap of 3,333 per device.

    Additionally, offline downloads can now be stored on up to five devices. Previously, users were able to download tracks for offline listening on up to three devices, which meant you could have a maximum of 9,999 offline tracks per account. With five devices now allowed each containing up to 10,000 songs, that ceiling rises to 50,000 tracks. The Swedish streaming giant subsequently confirmed the changes to Rolling Stone:
    The new limits should please a large section of users who have long aired their grievances about the seemingly arbitrary cap on offline downloads. That said, Spotify could likely please even more subscribers by increasing the 10,000 track limit on personal libraries, which strangely remains in place.

    (Via The Verge.)

    I’d be pleased if they let me control the size of the cache so it doesn’t fill up my device.

    I won't be needing this but I have heard complaints from other people who requested such change ― this is only a benefit, however small

    I had no idea there was a cap in the first place.

    Exactly. Some of us have an iPad Pro with 32GB and just want to stream Spotify without it taking up as much space as if they had downloaded a dozen albums.

    Yes Apple Music has a limit but it‘s 100.000, so 10x higher than Spotify‘s.
