How to Cancel Your Spotify Account

Spotify is one of the top music streaming services, offering free and paid options and providing access to more than 30 million songs online.

For $9.99 a month, Premium adds some nice bells and whistles. But even the freebie gives you the opportunity to search for and play your favorite tunes. That sounds great, but maybe you don't use it enough to justify the monthly cost. Perhaps you've switched to a rival service like Apple Music. Whatever the reason, you can remove your ties to Spotify.

First, let's take a quick look at Spotify. You can download it for Windows, the Mac, the iPhone or iPad, and Android devices. After you've set up your account, launch Spotify on your device. You can listen to online radio stations of different genres. You can create and discover playlists based on your musical tastes. And best of all, you can track down your favorite tunes and add them to your own playlists.

The free version limits you to shuffle play, so you have no control over the order in which your songs play. The paid Premium version adds in high-quality audio, unlimited skips, an ad-free experience, the option to play any tune in your collection, and a way to listen to music offline. You can also opt for a family account to the tune of $14.99 a month. Still want to cancel? No problem.
