How to cancel Spotify Premium

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.

FAQs

Can I still keep my Spotify account after cancelling Premium?

Yes, if you cancel your Premium plan you will be automatically moved over to the Free plan (once your Premium plan runs out). You can still use Spotify and access songs on the Free plan, but there will be ads and you won’t be able to skip as many songs.

Can I change my mind and upgrade to Premium?

Yes, if you want to sign back up for a Premium account you can. However, you may not pay the same price for the service, especially if you were using a promotion when you first signed up.
