Music streaming service giant Spotify recently announced that it is now offering three free months of Spotify Premium for eligible users. The three-month Premium trial is only available for a limited time.
Spotify Premium trial extended to three months, up from one month
In a blog post, the company states that the limited offer is only open to users who have not tried Spotify Premium before. New individual and student subscribers are eligible for the offer. New Spotify Duo and family subscribers can receive a one-month trial period of the Premium tier for free.
There is some good news for users who were subscribed to the Premium plan in the past. Users who canceled their Premium subscription before July 15th have a chance to resubscribe at a discounted date, receiving their first three months for $9.99.
Both limited offers are valid until Sunday, September 11th. After the trial ends, first-time subscribers of the premium service will start to be charged. As for users who were previously subscribed, they will also start being charged the regular price for the Premium subscription. The only is available for all eligible users around the globe.
In related news, Spotify Premium subscribers can now enjoy separate play and shuffle buttons. After years of complaints brought forth by users and even artists, Spotify recently announced that the combined play and shuffle button would no longer be a hindrance for paying users. The update is still being rolled out and will become widely available in the coming weeks.
In addition to improving the user interface, the recent changes Spotify has been implementing on its platform likely relate to the significant number of subscribers it lost in the first quarter of 2022. The service has also been facing some issues with subscriber satisfaction.
Though the company’s subscriber count increased from 182 million to 188 million in the second quarter of 2022, it is very important that it does not let that growth stagnate due to increasing competition from other music services like Apple Music.
