How to cancel Spotify: The easiest way to end your Premium plan

Spotify Premium is great when you want to appreciate your music ad-free and download playlists to listen anywhere on-the-go. But, at £9.99 a month for a standard account, the streaming service certainly isn’t cheap. Here’s how to cancel your Spotify sub.

On top of the above-mentioned perks, Premium subscribers can listen to any track and hit skip without worrying about hitting their limit. Unfortunately for the music service, sometimes other streaming apps win our hearts (and our budgets) for the month.

Whether your free trial has ended, you’re jumping ship to Apple Music or you just haven’t found yourself listening to music as much as you used to, read on to find out how to cancel your Spotify Premium subscription.

If you’re also not ready to be bombarded with ads by Spotify Free, scroll even further down to read our guide on how to close your Spotify account for good.
