Spotify has fundamentally revolutionized the music industry with more than 286 million users and 130 million subscribers. It is the largest music streaming service and the highest revenue stream for millions of artists today.
Spotify Premium or Spotify ++ is a premier streaming service pack offering ad-free streaming, offline playback (with in-app downloads), and other features. It costs $9.99 a month, $4.99 for students, for individual accounts.
You can also choose to get a family plan for $14.99/month and distribute premium features to 5 individuals including yourself residing at the same address.
But you can get Spotify Premium for free with the right tips and tricks, which is just what you will find the remainder of this article. Enjoy!
The easiest way to get a free Spotify premium account is to go for the 3-month trial period. Create a new account on Spotify with your email and enroll for the trial period. You will need to mention your payment details to initiate the trial period and authorize Spotify to debit the funds after the trial.
Spotify previously rolled out a 1-month trial period for individual accounts. If you have enjoyed such a trial before, you will not be eligible for this 3-month trial with the same e-mail. Note that all Spotify accounts are synced with the registered email.
So, if you want to continue enjoying ad-free music, all you need to do is create a new email ID and login to Spotify as a new account member! This is the easiest way how to Spotify Premium for free.
2. Become a Family Plan Member
Another easy way to enjoy Spotify premium member for free is to become a member of a family plan account. As mentioned before, the Family Plan allows for 6 individuals to enjoy premium features.
You can simply ask a Family plan account owner to add your Spotify account to the available 5 accounts and enjoy premium streaming.
You may face certain issues while using the account as the Family plan requires users to reside on the same address. Spotify is enforcing this, particularly in the US. But there is a way around it.
Spotify has also discreetly introduced a group session feature since 2019 where individuals can stream songs as a group. It also includes a group chat feature. You can stream music even from a different address on the group.
3. Install Free Spotify Premium APK in your Android device
You can also listen to Spotify premium on your Android device with a modified APK. You can use the cracked app to enjoy close to all premium features on your Android phone and tablet.
Install a cracked/modified Spotify app on your Android device and log in with your free Spotify account.
Some premium features may not work on your device depending on APK provider and the server you are using. This may affect offline streaming but all other features including ad-free playback, unlimited skips, high-quality audio, among others will be available.
Note that there are chances that the premium services may be suspended later by Spotify due to usage of the modified application.
4. Install Free Spotify Premium on iOS/iPhone
You can use installer services like AppValley or TweakApp to enjoy Spotify Premium for free on your iOS device or iPhone. Instead of downloading an APK or software package as required for an Android device, install one of these two apps on your iOS device.
Once installed, search for the Spotify premium installer on these apps and download the available option. Install a new Spotify Premium version on your device which you can use directly after logging in with your credentials.
To make it easier, you should sign up with a new account instead and it will automatically be available as a Premium feature. Make sure to uninstall the existing Spotify app.
