How to Cancel Your Spotify Subscription and Switch from Spotify Premium to Spotify Free


Want to know how to cancel Spotify? I am here to help you. I recently scrapped my Premium plan, partly because I prefer Apple Music, but mostly because the double whammy of paying artists a pittance and giving big bucks to awful podcasters made me want to leave.

Whether you’re leaving in protest or simply because you’d rather use a different service, you can cancel Spotify easily and instantly – but how you do that depends on where you got it.

How to Cancel Spotify if You Signed Up Online

This is the easiest way to cancel Spotify. Login on and look for the section that says Your plan. Now click on the Change plan button.

You should now see a section that says Cancel Spotify and a link saying Cancel bounty. Click on it and your Spotify subscription will stop at the end of the current billing period (because Spotify is billed monthly).

How to Cancel Spotify if You Signed Up on iTunes

If you purchased your Spotify subscription in the iOS app, you’ll need to cancel it from your device or the associated Mac.

]To do this on your iPhone, go to Settings > your name > Subscriptionsscroll until you see Spotify then press it. You should now see the unsubscribe link.

On your Mac, the process is much the same but you have to do it in the App Store app instead: click on your namescroll to Manage then click the Manage link (next to Subscriptions). Scroll down to Spotify, click Edit then click unsubscribe.

As with online cancellation, your subscription will continue until the end of the billing period.

How to Cancel Spotify When It Came in a Bundle

Many of us received Spotify in a bundle from our phone or internet provider, so to cancel that means you have to use another part of your Spotify account page. Look for the link that says Payment; it should have a contact link to the provider, such as your telephone company.

Can I still access my playlists when I cancel Spotify?

Yes. Your playlists and saved music stay in your account when you switch back to Spotify Free, though you lose paid features like high-quality, ad-free streaming. If you wish, you can also cancel Spotify Free, you will have to fill in this form (opens in a new tab) and send it to Spotify.
