How To Cancel Spotify Premium


Spotify is one of the world’s main streaming services. With over 400 million active users, the music app helped define the end of CDs. On top of that, it’s attractive to every kind of listener, even gamers, as many games have their soundtracks listed on Spotify’s collection. But how do you cancel Spotify Premium?

Even though it provides free features, Spotify is a freemium service. Users who pay for Premium enjoy more content, such as adless songs that can be downloaded and played anytime.

While it may seem like a great deal, sometimes it’s just not “economically advantageous” (which can translate to being broke), or you’ve grown tired of podcasts and song recommendations.

Be it one reason or another, there’s always a way to end your subscription. So, here’s how to cancel Spotify Premium.


Step-By-Step On How To Cancel Spotify Premium

If your Premium plan is Individual or Student, or you’re the main owner of a Duo or Family plan, you can cancel your Spotify Premium subscription by following these steps:

  1. Go to Spotify’s website and log in.
  2. Head to Account Settings.
  3. Click on Change Plan, under the Your Plan section.
  4. There, under the Spotify Free area, choose to Cancel Premium.

On the other hand, if you’re a part – but not the owner – of Premium Duo or Premium Family, you can follow those same steps to get out of the plan.

Keep in mind that you’ll stop being charged for new subscriptions, but the Premium features will still be available to you until your billing period ends.

And, in case you’re using the free trial but you don’t want to pay for the Premium service, you should follow those same steps above. Just make sure to do so before your trial ends, so you don’t get billed.


Spotify Alternatives

Should you miss your songs, you can look for an alternative service that is equal to Spotify in nature (and maybe in quality).

Perhaps one of Spotify’s biggest competitors, Apple Music is another integration app for Apple users. It has a huge collection of songs and allows users to interact with their favorites, while being available not only on iOS, but also Android and Windows.

Deezer, SoundCloud and YouTube Music also rival Spotify’s features and library size. Each has its own distinct set of content, but they all aim to please the ears with a freemium model.
