How Spotify Prices Change
Here is a full list of Spotify price increases – all of which apply to new customers as of Friday (April 30th) and to existing customers as of your billing date in June:
We haven’t seen any reports on the price of the standard premium subscription – currently £ 9.99 / month – although we are checking with Spotify. It also seems to continue to offer limited free access for those who don’t mind advertising, and limited control over what they hear, as well as one-month free trials on each of its paid services. We have asked Spotify for confirmation and will update this story as we know more.
Unsatisfied with the hike? You can cancel at any time with no penalty
If you are not satisfied with the changes, as Spotify is offered on a rolling one-month contract, you can simply cancel your subscription at any time with no penalty. You will receive the service until your next billing date – then your account will be switched to a limited, free account. All you need to do is to do the following:
- Sign in to your Spotify account.
- Under Your Plan, click Change Plan.
- Scroll to “Spotify Free” and click “Cancel Premium”.
While Spotify is one of the most famous, there are of course a plethora of other music streaming services to consider, including big names like Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited. For an overview, see our guide to free, cheap music.
