Spotify Premium: How to cancel your subscription

Do you want to switch from Spotify Premium to one of the other music services or simply switch to the free version? We’ll show you how to cancel your Spotify subscription.

Even though Spotify is one of the most popular streaming services, there are of course reasons to switch to another provider. But whether you prefer to benefit from your own small cloud on Google Play Music or use your iTunes library on Apple Music. We’ll show you how to cancel your Spotify Premium subscription.

Cancel Spotify Premium: on smartphone or PC

So far, it has not been possible to adjust the premium subscription directly via the Spotify app on the Android smartphone or iPhone. But you can do it via the mobile or desktop browser and that’s relatively easy.

  1. Opens the Spotify website  on the PC or smartphone and logs in
  2. Click on your profile picture (PC) or the right menu (cell phone) and on  account 
  3. Scroll down to  Subscription
  4. Click  Change or Cancel and Cancel Spotify Premium
  5. Confirmed with Yes  to end your subscription

On the subscription page of the account, you can now see how long you can continue to use Spotify Premium until you switch to the free service. You can also continue to access the playlists you have created in the free tariff, but you have to live with the restriction that you cannot explicitly control any tracks. In addition, you now hear advertisements regularly.
