How to Get Spotify Premium

In Short
  • Spotify Premium gives ad-free playback and unlocks a few new features.
  • There are five paid plans, namely — Premium Individual, Premium Duo, Premium Student, Premium Family, and Audiobooks Access.
  • The individual plan which most people will go for costs $11.99/month and offers the first month for free for new users.

Spotify needs no introduction. It’s among the most popular music streaming platforms in the world, alongside Apple Music and YouTube Music, and has made a pretty name for itself thanks to some of the standout features it offers. While streaming on Spotify is free to some extent, it’s filled with adverts. The company only keeps adding many hurdles that make it impossible for free users to stream in peace, forcing them to buy Premium. If you are a free Spotify user and want to subscribe to Premium, here’s how to get it.

All Spotify Premium Plans

Spotify currently has four plans to offer — Individual, Student, Duo, and Family. We’ve explained the pricing of all plans in our dedicated Spotify Premium Plans, Pricing, and Deals article, but here’s a quick rundown on them:

  • Individual: $11.99 / month
  • Student: $5.99 / month

The prices listed above have been revised since Spotify declared a price hike in June 2024. The individual and student plans are free for the first month if you haven’t tried the Premium features before. Spotify’s Premium Student Plan offers additional access to Hulu.

Duo gets Spotify Premium on two accounts, whereas Family gets up to 6 premium or kids accounts. The process of subscribing to all plans should be the same, but if you’re a student, you’d need to upload your student ID card as proof to get the subscription.
