Spotify offline now available to PC users After announcing it last month, Spotify's offline service is now available in Europe, allowing users to listen to their music and playlists without needing to be connected to the Internet.
The offline service has been available for iPhone users since the apps launch, and has met critical acclaim. Anyone with a premium account can now open the service and hit “available offline” next to their playlists or tracks.

"Beginning later today, Spotify Premium subscribers will be able to select their playlists and set them to be 'Available offline'," says the company. "Those playlists will then be synced to the computer so you can listen to your favorite tunes even if your internet connection goes down or if you're at summer house with no connection at all."

There is one catch however, and that is that you can only "download" up to 3,333 tracks for offline playback at one time.

These guys seem to be the only usable legal option for affordable, if not free music. Good luck to them. Hopefully it will help keep the heat off. ;-)
