Drawbacks of Spotify Web Player
Spotify Web Player is without doubt has plenty of features to use but there are certain features that do not work as better as the Spotify application. After using it for a while, we found that it plays music at a bit rate that’s lower than what we enjoy on both Mobile and Desktop applications.
If you don’t listen to music frequently then you would not be able to notice it. Yes, only a die-hard music lover can notice this change. The biggest disadvantage of using Spotify web player is it does not allow its users to save songs for offline use.
I would recommend you use this only if you always have a solid internet connection or else you should to Spotify desktop application.
