Spotify now offers three-month Premium trial

The battle to attract the most number of music streamers is on.

Music streaming giant Spotify is now offering a three-month trial for its Spotify Premium service, mirroring the current offering by Apple Music.

Spotify and Apple Music are currently head to head at the top of all the other music streaming apps and websites. Their closest rival is Amazon Music, which is also slowly rising to the top with its growing number of subscribers.

In its latest announcement, Spotify said it will now offer the first three months of Spotify Premium free for eligible users, specifically those who haven’t already tried Premium. The offer starts today, August 22, for individual and student plans.

Spotify said it currently has over 100 million subscribers. The three-month trial could even boost the tech company’s user base as it competes with Apple Music and Amazon Prime Music.

With the free Spotify Premium trial, first-time subscribers can enjoy the same benefits as existing users of the service including unlimited ad-free music and podcasts, the ability to download as many songs and podcasts you want, play any song, playlist or podcast anytime and anywhere you want. Play your music or podcasts via your phone or desktop.

Spotify currently offers over 50 million free songs and 450,000 podcasts for Premium members.

Spotify Premium currently costs $9.99 a month. The music platform is also offering a Premium for Family subscription, letting up to five family members enjoy unlimited and ad-free music at $14.99 a month.

Apple Music is also offering the same rates for its individual and family plans.

Similarly, Amazon Music is also worth $9.99 a month.’s music streaming service seems to be the only one among the three to have a 30-month free trial. We can only wait and see if Amazon will follow suit.

Amazon Music lets subscribers access 50 million songs. For members of the e-commerce company’s Amazon Prime service who did not subscribe to Amazon Music, they are still entitled to over 2 million ad-free songs.
