How to delete your Spotify account: Cancel your Spotify subscription and close your Spotify account for good
Spotify is still the poster child for music streaming. With 138 million paying subscribers, Spotify is a top-rated music service that’s used all over the world. Although the Swedish company is proving its worth in the market, it has taken many steps for increased revenue and public exposure. Some users are switching to Tidal and Amazon Music Unlimited because of this.
Spotify launched a new free tier to try to increase the number of users. Spotify had previously offered two tiers: an ad free tier for $9.99 per monthly and a free, ad funded tier. The first lets you download songs offline and doesn’t limit access. The latter limits how many songs you can access and restricts what playlists you can use. Shuffle is not allowed. Spotify Free allows you to listen to any song in 15 Discovery playlists on-demand.
Spotify offers student accounts, family accounts and Spotify duo (for up to two people) at a reduced price. Every tier is priced at a competitive price compared to other on the market. If you are looking to save money every month, it might be time to cancel your subscription.
