What Is Spotify OGG Vorbis?

To deliver a tier music playback experience, Spotify has used different audio formats to separate different quality options:
  • On Spotify mobile and desktop apps, music is formatted in OGG Vorbis at a bitrate ranging from 96 to 320kbps (free accounts can only set the highest quality up to 160kbps)
  • On Spotify web player, music is streamed in AAC in 128kbps for free users and 256kbps for premium users
As you can see, Spotify OGG Vorbis is one of the audio formats used by Spotify to encode the best quality option, 320 kbps. Except for this, another difference between Spotify OGG and the normal OGG format should be the fact that Spotify has used DRM to protect OGG songs. You may face limitations in streaming Spotify OGG Music like the following ones:
  • The Spotify OGG songs with the highest 320 kbps quality can only be played after subscribing to Spotify Premium.
  • You can’t download Spotify OGG songs if you are using a Spotify free account.
  • Even if you are a Spotify Premium user, the downloaded Spotify OGG songs will be formatted in protected files with an extension “.file” that can only be played within the Spotify app, and it won’t be possible for you to convert them to MP3 for listening elsewhere.
Till now, you can clearly understand that Spotify OGG is different from the common OGG audio files – because it is limited by Spotify’s DRM technology. This brings to many inconvenient cases, especially when you want more free ways to enjoy Spotify playback offline. That’s why more Spotify users are beginning to wonder if there is a way that can help them convert the protected Spotify OGG to MP3, so that they can have a free Spotify Music streaming experience without being greatly limited by the official. If you are also one of them, now, just keep reading.
