Maybe you are planning to cancel Spotify premium subscription because you find all of your favorite music on Apple Music. Or you switched to other streaming services like Google Play Music. I am taking an attempt to explain to you how to cancel Spotify premium subscription from its official website and the app.
Launched in 2008, Spotify is one of the best audio streaming platforms that offer DRM-protected music and podcasts from media companies and record labels. Spotify offers a freemium service where the basic features are free with advertisements. While additional features like improved streaming quality are provided via paid subscriptions.
Before you initiate the process, you need to know from where you purchased the Spotify subscription. It can be purchased through the official website, iOS App, and Android App or through a third-party provider such as Apple iTunes. This is the most crucial step as it helps you cancel that particular Spotify subscription.
If you own an Android device, you can avoid confusion as there is no third-party service which offers Spotify integration on Android.
