Spytify is a Spotify recorder for Windows which records Spotify audio without recording or playing ads, ensuring no loss in sound quality. It automatically splits songs into separate tracks and records to MP3 with media metadata, meaning you can start easily enjoying your music offline.

Spytify runs on Windows only. Requirements:

  • Microsoft Framework (.NET 4.6.1 or higher)
  • Spotify Desktop application

A free Spotify account will work, but restricts audio quality to 120 kbps. Having a Premium Spotify subsciption will enable recording of up to 320 kbps audio.

How it works

Spytify records what Spotify outputs, which is a longer process than downloading a Spotify playlist with a tool.

However, Spytify ensures that all tracks will be the official released one, all sound volume normalized and with media tags and album cover. Playlist Downloaders get mostly all tracks from YouTube which means that they can’t guarantee the choosen track will fit 100% the one in your playlist and they will all be the same quality.

Spytify records the same quality that Spotify outputs (Spotify Free 160kbps, Spotify Premium 320kbps), so the recorded copy will be indistinguishable from Spotify’s one.

That means you can have your issue (feature/improvement) prioritized, just open an feature request on this repository and go to our IssueHunt page and fund your issue to promote it. When the bounty will be interesting enough for someone to work on it, he will then submit a Pull Request with his code on this repo and link it to the IssueHunt page. Once the code is approved by the repo owner (it should not break the app architecture or basic purpose, it should not make it harder to maintain either), it will then be merged, and the bounty will be rewarded to the PR author if the requested feature was covered by the PR otherwise the funders can be refunded or we will wait for another PR.
