How to cancel Spotify 

  1. Make sure you're logged into Spotify.
  2. Find 'subscription' on the left hand side of your screen.
  3. When the subscription page opens, you'll find the details of your premium membership – how much you pay monthly and when your membership renews. You'll want to select the option to 'cancel',
  4. Spotify will ask you to confirm your choice. If you're still happy to cancel, select 'confirm' when prompted.
  5. Your Spotify Premium membership is now cancelled, though you will be able to enjoy Premium services until the date on which your account would usually renew. 
  6. While you'll no longer benefit from uninterrupted listening, after this, you will still be able to enjoy a free membership.  

Changed your mind?

Discovered you can't live without Spotify, after all? It's okay, you're allowed to change your mind. Simply upgrade to a Premium account. You'll find all your playlists saved and ready to go.
