  5. Now just continue confirming until you get a message of confirmation.

Now, on your account page, you will be able to see the date when your plan converts to Spotify Free. If that’s the case then you just canceled your Spotify Premium subscription and can enjoy Spotify Premium till the date when your plan changes to Spotify Free.

The offline way to cancel

You can also cancel your Spotify Premium subscription by filling this form and posting it to Spotify.

Cancelling didn’t work?

On your account page, if you can’t see a date indicating when your plan converts to Spotify Free, it means you are paying for the Spotify subscription through some other company account (e.g. your mobile provider, PlayStation or with iTunes). If that’s the case, you need to cancel the subscription from the account of that respective company. You will find details about it on your account page.

Your plan is Spotify Free and still being charged?

  5. Repeat steps 1 to 3 for each email address if you have multiple email addresses.


  1. To find whether you have your Facebook account linked to your Spotify account:
  2. Log in to Facebook.
  3. Go to Settings.
  4. Go to Apps and Websites.
