How to Change My Subscription on Spotify?

Do you want to change your Spotify subscription and get a Premium subscription or switch back to the free plan?

Sure, that’s super easy to do. You won’t even realize you’re done. So, here it is:

  1. Open Spotify on your computer or phone
  2. Go to “Account
  3. Find the “Your Plan” menu
  4. Change your plan

The process is similar on both phones and computers, but I’ll take you through them step-by-step just in case. So, just keep reading and enjoy 😀

On Computer

1. Click on your profile name in the top-right corner

Click on your profile name in the top-right corner

Begin by opening the Spotify app on your computer and logging in (if necessary). Then, find your profile name in the top-right corner and click it.

You need to do this to open a side-menu, which will contain several options options, as you’ll soon see. Keep reading, please:

2. Select “Account.”

Select "Account"
Select “Account

In the side-menu that pops up, you’ll see the “Account” option first on the list. Select it with a click to be redirected to your account settings.

3. Find the “Your Plan” menu

After you open your account settings on Spotify, you should see your “Account overview,” with username, email address, date of birth, and country or region.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page until you see the “Your Plan” header. Under it, you’ll see what subscription you currently have for Spotify.

I’m on the Free plan, so I can only upgrade to Premium if I want to. You’ll see the “Join Premium” button under the current subscription window.

Click on it to join Premium or. A different option will appear if you’re already on Premium and want to cancel it.

The “Change Plan” option will be there instead. Click on it and see where that takes you. You should be able to cancel or change your subscription to Spotify from there.

On Mobile

1. Tap on the Gear icon in the top-right corner

Just like before, open Spotify on your mobile, log in if necessary, and then tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of the page.

2. Select “Go Premium” or “Change Plans

Select "Go Premium" or "Change Plans"
Select “Go Premium” or “Change Plans

After you open your Spotify settings, you should see your current plan at the top of the newly-opened page. In my case, it’s the “Free Account” since I don’t have a Premium subscription.

Under the current subscription, you’ll see a button. For me, it’s Go Premium.” In your case, it might be the “Change Plans” button if you already have a premium.

Tap on whichever button is there and get going with the next steps:

3. Select a new plan

After you tap on the “Change Plans” or “Go Premium” button, you’ll be taken to this page (see it above). you should see a more detailed description of the various plans on Spotify.

Under each subscription, you’ll see the “Get Plan” button. Yeah, tap on it to get that plan (you’ll have to enter your credit card information for Premium).

And that…is how you change plans on Spotify. Hope this guide was helpful but leave me a reply in the comment section if you need more help!

What are the different Spotify plans?

Spotify doesn’t only have Free and Premium plans for its users. There are several subscriptions plans:

– Spotify Individual ($9.99/month) – This is the basic Premium plan that includes ad-free listening, downloading mode, offline mode, and on-demand music playback

– Spotify Duo ($12.99/month) – Two people access two Spotify Premium subscriptions for only $12.99 per month. However, both people need to prove that they live together

– Spotify Family ($15.99/month) – A maximum of 6 people can use the same Spotify account with this subscription.

– Spotify Student ($4.99/month) – Identical to the Spotify Individual, just cheaper. It’s made for students who can’t afford a regular plan. The Student plan only lasts up to 4 years

There are plenty of options for music enthusiasts, whether they’re living alone, with a partner, or with a family.

Can I use Spotify on two phones?

Yes, you can. Spotify lets you install the app on as many devices as you want. However, you can’t use Spotify simultaneously on multiple devices.

Unless you have a Duo or Family subscription, the regular Individual Premium plan only works on a single device simultaneously.

If you try to use it on a secondary device, Spotify will automatically log off from the first device.

Many people have tried cheating Spotify with an Individual plan but couldn’t use the app on multiple devices simultaneously.

If that’s not your goal and you only want to listen to Spotify from any device in your home, then you can do so.

But use them one at a time!
