Spotify Plus – Premium vs Free

Home > Apps > Spotify Plus – Premium vs Free

Spotify is the number one music streaming app in the world, boasting more than 200 million active users, almost half of those paying for the premium version of the app. With one of the largest libraries of music found anywhere, the big question is, do you go free or do you pay for the premium app?  spotify plus app

Let’s see what each has to offer

Pros:

Spotify offers several useful features, such as:

  • Unlimited streaming 
  • More than 35 million tracks to listen to
  • Compatible with all major mobile platforms
  • Top-rated tools for social networking
  • Offline mode – no need for the internet
  • Choice of four plans – free, premium, family, and unlimited
  • 30-day free premium trial
  • User-friendly

But

Cons:

As with anything, the ups come with a few downsides too:

  • On the free version, unlimited streaming is only for 6 months
  • Some songs have adverts in them
  • US version does not allow the direct purchase of DRM-free music
  • Only the European version has the radio facility
  • Alternative email sign-up option is not that obvious
  • The premium trial is invite-only in the US

We’re not done yet

Free Version Benefits:

iOS Download

APK Download

The free version of Spotify does offer you a massive choice of tracks to download from and, although there are the occasional adverts, these are not too bothersome. You don’t have to worry about a monthly subscription payment and, for the first six months, you do get unlimited streaming. After that, it drops to 10 hours per month with each track playable just 5 times.

And more

Premium Subscription Benefits:

The most obvious benefit is the removal of the ads. Add to that the ability to listen offline, and you can take your music anywhere you want. And, if you don’t want to listen to using your phone or desktop, you can also access the entire library using a Spotify-compatible home stereo system. With access to a higher streaming rate and exclusive content such as pre-release albums, for the price of one album per month, you get as much music as you want.

Spotify for Students Benefits:

Mac Download PC Download

Students who are enrolled at accredited colleges or universities are eligible for a 50% discount on the premium price, so that’s just $5 per month. And that can be renewed yearly at that price a total of 3 times, so long as you remain eligible for the deal. And as a sweetener, Apple is throwing in subscriptions to Hulu and Showtime for free, which would cost $19 a month between them.

Cool or what?

Is it Worth It?

If you want music on-tap, anywhere you go, without having to worry about an internet connection, and you want unlimited streaming then the premium app is most definitely worth the cost. The extra features, including the lack of ads, pre-release content and faster streaming are just the icing on the cake for an app that costs less per month than buying one single album.
