Comparison: Spotify Free vs. Spotify Premium

There have two main tiers of Spotify: Free and Premium ($9.99 per month). And they each offer different capabilities and limits, depending upon which device you are using to access Spotify. Before you decide to subscribe Spotify, you may need to find out what are the differences between Spotify Free and Spotify Premium, and why the Premium version is worth your money.

spotify free vs premium

1. Price

The price must be the most obvious difference. Spotify Free, like its name, is free for everyone. Of course you will lose some rights that Premium subscribers have, instead. If you subscribe to Premium, then it will cost $9.99 per month. Good news is, you have a one-month free trial to try Spotify Premium before you decide to subscribe it.

2. Features

Spotify Free is supported by ads. Every few tracks you play, you will be forced to be interrupted by one or two short adverts, which will also break your pleasure that you get from the music. Some tracks are not be playable. You can use the desktop and web interfaces, but the mobile app will only let you listen on shuffle mode or pre-made playlists.

Upgrading to Spotify Premium will remove all adverts so you can listen the music without any interruption. Furthermore, you can enjoy whatever track you want to listen via any Spotify interface (desktop, web or app). Another benefit is a Premium subscription allows you to download up to 3,333 tracks on up to three devices for offline listening.

3. Audio Quality

Spotify Free provides 96 kbps as the standard bitrate for mobile, then jumps to 160 kbps for desktop and web player 'standard quality' and 'high quality' on mobile. If you subscribe Spotify Premium, you'll get 320 kbps which is 'high quality' on desktop and 'extreme quality' on mobile.


For better understanding, the following image shows clearly the differences between these two versions of Spotify.
