Spotify is now offering a three-month trial of its premium level globally, giving newcomers from around the world a chance to take the streaming service for a spin before deciding if it’s worth the $10 monthly fee.
The standard trial period Spotify it lasts 30 days, although it occasionally offers a three-month trial.
The latest deal, announced on Monday, August 15, is open to anyone who hasn’t yet signed up for Spotify Premium. But in a bid to win back Spotify Premium subscribers who dropped the service before July 15, 2022, it’s also offering three months for the price of one, working out at just $3.33 per month.
“Need a pick-me-up to get you through the fall and the colder days ahead?” spotify said in a message on their website announcing the current three-month offer. “It’s easy to keep up with summer with your favorite beach or poolside tunes, especially when they’re unlimited, on-demand, ad-free, and cost even less.”
That’s right, Spotify Premium removes the ads that dot its free tier. It also allows mobile users to select each track, while free users have to settle for a random option and a maximum of six skips per hour (although the desktop version does allow on-demand playback). Offline listening is also possible for paid subscribers, while the free version does not offer such a feature.
Spotify’s current offer of three free months of Premium runs through September 11. Once the trial ends, your subscription will automatically renew at the regular monthly cost, unless you cancel before the trial period ends.

Apple Music, Spotify’s main rival, doesn’t offer a free trial as standard practice, though the tech giant does occasionally offer a few months free if you sign up for one of its other services or buy one of its devices. Other companies, Verizon and Best Buy among them, have also been known to launch deals that let you try Apple Music for free for a limited time.
