Songs downloaded from Spotify or Apple Music come with DRM protection. If you want to know what DRM is, DRM stands for Digital Rights Management. DRM protection is a technology that prevents unauthorized redistribution of digital media and restricts the ways users can copy, transfer or share the content they have downloaded.
So, even you have download Apple Music or Spotify songs for offline listening, you only allowed to play the downloads with its music app, you cannot transfer the downloaded Spotify music/Apple music to other devices – MP3 player, iPod nano, Android devices, PS4, Zune, Xbox, etc. Worse, for Apple Music users, you will lose all the music in the library if you unsubscribe from Apple Music.
For Spotify Premium users, even though you can download Spotify music for offline listening with a Premium account, the music you get is DRM protected and you can only play them within Spotify App.
