How to cancel your Premium subscription in the Spotify app
Spotify has apps for Android, iOS, and Windows. Canceling your premium plan is similar on all platforms because the process ends in a web browser regardless of the device.
How to Cancel Spotify Premium on the Android and iOS apps
To cancel Spotify from the mobile app, follow these steps:
- Tap on Your Library at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap the icon (usually the initial of your first name) in the upper left corner to view your account details.
- Select Premium plan (View your plan).
- Tap on See available plans.
- On the bottom of the page, tap Change your plan.
- Scroll to the end of the page, and select Cancel Premium under the Spotify Free pane.
- Select Continue to Cancel and confirm with Yes, Cancel.
Once you’ve canceled your premium subscription, you’ll be directed to a brief survey asking why you decided to cancel. While your subscription is already terminated at this point, you have the option to either fill out the survey or skip it. If you’re in a hurry, scroll to the bottom and tap Skip. You can answer the questions and tap Submit if you’d like to provide feedback.
