Spotify on Mobile Goes Free!

Spotify users – we have good news for you!  Since Spotify came to the U.S. free users were limited to their computers and a bunch of commercials.  Eventually, they opened their mobile app to Spotify Radio to compete with the well established Pandora Radio, but personal playlists were still a premium feature.

Finally, Spotify is allowing personal playlists to be accessed and played on mobile without a premium account.  Sound too good to be true?  Well, there is a catch.  Yes, all of your playlists are available, yes you can listen to all tracks, no you can’t choose the order.  Spotify is giving you unlimited access to their music with limited control.  Essentially they are forcing you to shuffle your playlists.  This is a small ask when it comes to the amount of music that is now opened up to you wherever you go for free.  Thank you Spotify!

My wife and I use Spotify all the time. We pay for one premium account and share it. If you’re curious how we do that be sure to read our article How to Use one Spotify account with multiple people. Do you use Spotify? Is this enough of a deal that you’ll ditch your prime account, and go free with ads? Comment below, let us know. For now, I’m sticking with Spotify Premium but that may change…

God Bless,
Bryce

I've been doing some form of ministry since 2000. For 13 years I was involved in the youth ministry at Cordova Neighborhood Church as everything from youth intern to youth pastor. God has led me and my lovely wife Bethany to Church of the Foothills where I currently reside as the Digital Publishing Coordinator. I'm excited to see where God leads my wife and I.
