FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. You can play back compressed FLAC files in your favorite player (or your car or home stereo, etc.) just like you would an MP3 file.
Spotify uses Ogg Vorbis as their streaming format. While the songs can be “downloaded” (stored offline) on a Premium subscription, they are not actual audio files that you can play with any player or device.
Currently it's very easy to convert any audio file to the format you want, such as FLAC. All you need is a stable audio converter, there are also many online audio converting tools. You don’t need to install or download any thing. However, things become complicated when you want to convert songs from music streaming services, such as Spotify.
