How to Cancel Spotify Premium

Spotify is one of the world’s leading streaming services. With over 400 million active users, the music app helped define the end of CDs. Besides that, it is appealing to all types of listeners even gamers as many games have their soundtracks listed in Spotify’s collection. But how to cancel Spotify Premium?

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

While that might sound like a lot, sometimes it’s just not “economically beneficial” (which can translate to being broke), or you’re tired of podcasts and song recommendations.

Whether for one reason or another, there is always a way to end your subscription. So here is how to cancel Spotify Premium.

Step by Step on How to Cancel Spotify Premium

If your Premium plan is Individual or Student, or if you are the primary cardholder of a Duo or Family plan, you can cancel your Spotify Premium subscription by following these steps:

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

On the other hand, if you are part – but not the owner – of Premium Duo or Premium Family, you can follow these same steps to exit the plan.

Keep in mind that you will no longer be charged for new subscriptions, but Premium features will still be available until the end of your billing period.

And, if you are using the free trial but don’t want to pay for the Premium service, you need to follow the same steps above. Just make sure you do it before your trial ends, so you don’t get charged.

Alternatives to Spotify

If you miss your songs, you can look for an alternative service that’s equal to Spotify in kind (and maybe in quality).

Perhaps one of Spotify’s biggest competitors, Apple Music is another onboarding 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 on Android and Windows.

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