How to cancel Spotify Premium
Here is the easiest way to cancel your Spotify Premium account.
Even though the iPod is officially dead, music is still alive and well, with multiple different streaming platforms to choose from, including Apple Music, Amazon Music Unlimited and, of course, Spotify.
Due to all of the choices we have when it comes to music platforms, you may find yourself slowly turning away from Spotify, and looking to decrease the time you spend on the app.
Thankfully, that couldn’t be easier, as you can cancel your Spotify Premium subscription in just a few simple steps, meaning that you will still have access to the Spotify music library, just with a couple more ads sprinkled in.
So, without further ado, here is the easiest way to cancel your Spotify subscription.
