Spotify users accustomed to amassing a wealthy horde of downloaded music will have ample reason to rejoice. Keep that in mind before you start downloading every album in sight, but otherwise enjoy listening to music without worrying about signal. The new maximum number of songs per device is 10,000, three times higher than before. If you use the service but still prefer the old-school method of listening to music, then you may have encountered this unusual limit.

For comparison, Apple Music allows for libraries of up to 100,000 tracks, with the only limit on downloads being local storage space.

Thankfully, Spotify has now addressed the issue. Additionally, the number of different devices this applies to has been raised from three to five, meaning you could potentially store 50,000 tracks for your offline listening pleasure.

Better yet, it'll be available for $49 instead of the $65 the charger was initially offered for when it went on sale this summer. It also comes with an integrated USB-C cable and USB-A port for charging purposes.

Spotify has quietly lifted its 3,333 song download limit with its latest software update, according to Rolling Stone. "At Spotify, we're always working on improving the experience for our users".

Because we live in a world where people need more than 3,333 tracks per device, Spotify has gone ahead and done something about that. Still, the move will doubtlessly be appreciated by users. The new 10,000 track limit, first reported by Rolling Stone, is so high the vast majority of people probably won't even have to think about it.
