How to listen Spotify songs offline on PS4/PS5
Playing Spotify on the PS5 or PS5 offline is surprisingly easy and free of charge. Sony has made it simple to access the music streaming service directly from the console with a free PlayStation Network account. Just log in to the PlayStation Store, search for ‘Spotify’, and download the app for free. From there, you can easily link your Spotify Premium account and start listening to music within minutes. If you don’t have a Premium account, you can still enjoy basic streaming features without one, so long as you’re connected to an active internet connection. The PS5’s Offline Mode also makes it possible to continue using the app when not online, though this will be limited to non-streaming functionality. Have fun listening!

Reasons why Spotify isn’t working on PS4
Spotify can be an incredibly convenient and versatile way to listen to music. Unfortunately, from time to time it might stop working on your Playstation 4. This can be frustrating since you want to listen to your tunes as soon as possible! There are a couple of causes that could be causing Spotify not to work on your PS4 such as a connection issue or cache needs resetting.
