Import Spotify Music to Windows Media Player

“I pay for a Spotify premium account to enable the ‘Download’ option, but still I can’t find a way to add Spotify Music to Windows Media Player. How can I do that?” – Alex

Windows Media Player (WMP) used to be one of the most popular options of the media controller. The app is concomitantly installed with the Windows system, and it supports playing audio files, video resources, and so on. As long as the media files are in a general format, it can help you well manage these files in the WMP library with labeling and grouping.

WMP is a great desktop app, however, in recent years people are more prone to use some streaming apps for replacement – like Spotify Music, iTunes/Apple Music, Amazon Music, etc. In most cases, these streaming music services can satiate your general needs for music, but if you want to better manage your playlists, or burn a CD of your own, Windows Media Player is still the top choice. In the later part of this article, you’ll learn a simple but perfect way to import Spotify Music to Windows Media Player for better managing, or burn them onto your CD disk.
