While it can be great to listen to Spotify ad-free along with all the other perks of having Premium, there comes a time when you might want to end your subscription. Whether you’re transfering to a new streaming service, don’t use it enough, or simply don’t want to pay for it anymore, canceling Spotify Premium is easy and doable for anyone.
This article is going to teach you all about cancelling your Spotify Premium so that you can know every detail before doing so. Let’s get into it!
What is the Spotify Premium Cancellation policy?
Spotify Premium have a lenient cancellation policy, allowing customers to cancel their subscription at any time, and this is completely free. After you cancel Spotify Premium, you will no longer be billed.
Once your subscription is cancelled, you can actually keep using Spotify as a premium member until the next billing cycle. Then on the day that your next payment would be due, your account goes back to the free version and they don’t charge you.
How to cancel Spotify Premium
Cancelling Spotify Premium is similar on every device, but there are minor differences depedning on what you have. Below, we’ll go through the different ways you can cancel with these different devices.
On computer, Android, or iOS
This is going to be the most straightforward way to cancel your subscription. Since you can’t actually cancel it directly through the Spotify app, you’ll have to go to Spotify through a browser (even if you’re using a phone or iPad). Here’s how to do it:
- Go to the Spotify login on the browser of your choice
- Log into the account you wish to cancel
- Find “Profile” at the top right and click on it
- Click “Account”
- Go to “Subscription”
- Click on “Change or Cancel”
- Confirm that you are cancelling Premium
On iPhone or iPad
Though you can follow the ios instructions when it comes to an iPhone or iPad, you could also cancel this way if it makes more sense or seems easier for whatever reason:
- Go to the settings app
- In the search bar, type “Family”
- You should see an icon come up that says “Apple ID” underneath it. Click on this.
- Go to “Subscriptions”
- Select “Spotify Subscription”
- Click “Cancel Subscription”
- Tap “Confirm” when prompted
Is Spotify Premium hard to cancel?
Spotify Premium isn’t hard to cancel once you understand how, but it can be difficult to figure out on your own. Since you can’t cancel directly through the mobile app, this can cause a lot of frustration and confusion for people. If you had this issue, know that you are not alone!
However, once you follow the instructions on how to cancel your subscription, it shouldn’t be too challenging. You just have to make sure you are going to the Spotify website as opposed to the app, and hopefully you won’t have any problems with it after this.
Can I cancel my Spotify Premium online?
Canceling your Spotify Premium online is the best way to go about it. You just have to go to the Spotify website and take it from there. We go over how to do this in the “On computer, Android, or ios” section of this article.
You can also cancel your Spotify Premium through settings if you have an ios device, but this isn’t necessary. If you are only interested in canceling online, then you can just do that and your subscription should be taken care of.
What happens when you cancel Spotify Premium?
Once you cancel Spotify Premium, you get to keep using Spotify as a Premium member until the next payment is due. After this, you will go back to the free version.
Once this happens, you will be able to keep all of your Spotify playlists even though Premium is canceled. You’ll just have to listen to them as a non-premium member instead, meaning that you will have limited skips, won’t be able to download songs, and will have to listen to ads. But rest assured, the music will still be there for you to enjoy.
Can you cancel Spotify Premium at any time?
You can cancel Spotify Premium at any time. Whether you just bought it or you have been paying for it for years, Spotify doesn’t have any rules against cancelling. You can do so whenever you please, and there will be absolutely no penalties.
Will I get charged if I cancel my Spotify Premium subscription?
You shouldn’t get charged for anything when you cancel your Spotify Premium subscription. It’s completely free to cancel whenver you want, and if you do happen to get charged after cancelling, there has probably been a mistake.
If this happens to you, you can go to the Spotify support page to get to the bottom of it. But in most cases, there will be no problems when cancelling your subscription and you shouldn’t be charged for anything once you do so.
Can you pause your subscription instead of canceling it?
As of right now, there is no option to pause your Spotify Premium account. If you only want to stop using it for a short amount of time, you’ll still have to cancel the whole subscription as though you aren’t planning on using it again.
But when you are ready to start using Spotify Premium again, you can just purchase it once more and go back to paying monthly. So though there isn’t a pausing option right now, there is no problem with just cancelling your subscription and picking it back up when you are ready to pay again.
As you can see, cancelling Spotify Premium isn’t a super challenging process, but it definitely isn’t very straightforward either. Luckily, cancelling your account doesn’t result in any penalties, and you can do so at any time you want.
Hopefully this article has given you insight when it comes to cancelling your Premium account so that you know all about what happens when you do so and how to do it smoothly. Good luck!
