Chrome Extension Rips Music From Spotify’s Web Player

Downloadify, a new Chrome extension published just a few hours ago enables users to download MP3 files from the Spotify web player.

Users who install the extension have the option to download any song on Spotify web player by double-clicking on a track.

Upon publishing the extension still appears to work, but it’s highly doubtful that it will stay online for long. Last year Google cracked down on many YouTube rippers because of terms of service violations.

Tweakers notes that Spotify currently reports “issues with its website” on Twitter but it’s unclear whether this is related.

Ripping music from music sites and services is nothing new of course, but this is the first time we’ve seen such a straightforward option for Spotify.

Update: And…. It’s gone

Update: Tweakers reports that Spotify fixed the “leak”
