How to Use Spotify Completely for Free


Spotify is a digital music streaming service that provides you access to millions of songs and podcasts all over the world. The cost of service has been asked quite often by people who are new to Spotify, so is Spotify for free to use? Spotify offers free and subscription-based services, for paid service, you have options of Individual $9.99/month for one account, Duo $12.99/month for 2 accounts, Family $14.99/month for up to 6 accounts, and Student $4.99/month for one account. For more information regarding the difference of free and paid account, you can go to the article differences between Spotify Free and Premium to find out the detailed difference between these two types of service. However, if you are not keen on the music quality or you stream Spotify with the desktop app more than a mobile app, you probably do not need to purchase the Spotify Premium.

Use Spotify for Free

Let’s take a quick look at the main difference between Spotify Free and Premium

Spotify Free vs Premium

Did you know that there is a slight difference between the Spotify mobile app and desktop app? In fact, with Spotify Free service, you can stream any single song you want on Spotify desktop, but the songs on Spotify mobile app can only be played in shuffle mode, which means you cannot pick which song you want to play right away. And for Spotify Premium service, there is another significant difference, which is the music quality. You can stream the music with 320kbps with a premium account, but only 256kbps is available for Spotify Free. In other words, you can simply use Spotify Free on desktop if the sound quality doesn’t make much difference to you.

How to Make Spotify Tracks as MP3 Files?

As mentioned above, you can stream any song you want with the desktop app, but if you can download the songs from Spotify as mp3 files, those songs will become completely “unlocked”, and you can simply transfer them to your mobile phone which works exact same as Spotify Premium mode. For the second part of this article, let’s start learning how to download Spotify tracks as mp3 files, and interestingly, it’s completely free.
