How To Cancel Your Spotify Free / Premium Account!

How To Cancel Your Spotify Free / Premium Account!

Find out why you should cancel your Spotify Free or Spotify Premium account, and how to do it!

PS. Cancelling your free account isn’t as easy as you’d think! But cancel it, you must…

 

Why Cancel Your Spotify Free / Premium Account?

Spotify has long been the giant of music streaming services, but there will come a time when you want to cancel your Spotify Free or Spotify Premium account.

Most notably, Spotify is now being cancelled because they chose to allow Joe Rogan to continue spreading misinformation on their platform.

But even if you don’t care about Joe Rogan and fake news, Spotify has been slacking against the competition, namely Apple Music and Amazon  :

  • its Premium account still does not offer lossless quality
  • its Premium account still does not offer spatial audio
  • Spotify still does not support 16-bit CD-quality audio

Spotify has rested on their laurels for way too long, and you – the customer- have the option of cancelling your free or premium account to show your displeasure and hopefully wake them up from their slumber…

Even if you are using a free ad-supported Spotify account, you should still cancel it. Your cancellation matters, because Spotify relies on user base numbers to hype up their popularity to please shareholders and negotiate with artists, record labels, etc.

How To Cancel Your Spotify Premium Account?

Here is the official way to cancel your Spotify Premium account.

  1. Log into spotify.com/account.
  2. Under Your plan, click CHANGE PLAN.
  3. Scroll to Cancel Spotify and click CANCEL PREMIUM.

However, that may be outdated, so here is an example by Luke Filipowicz from iMore.

  1. Log into spotify.com/account.
  2. Go to Subscription.
  3. Tap on View Details.

  1. Under the Update Details button, click on the “cancel your subscription” option.

Your Premium account will stay active until your next billing date, then your account switches to free. Please go to the next section to completely remove your Spotify free account.

Note : Due to a tremendous number of people requesting to cancel their accounts, Spotify may tell you that you are not allowed to cancel at the moment.

If that happens, simply remove your credit card in your Spotify profile settings. This will prevent them from charging your credit card, and extending your Premium subscription.

 

How To Cancel Your Spotify Free Account?

Here is how you can cancel your Spotify Free account. It is important to do this, even if you had already cancelled your Premium account.

  1. Log into spotify.com/account.
  2. Download and fill this form.
  3. Submit the completed form to the Spotify Support team.

Remember – as long as you maintain your Spotify Free account, you still count in their statistics of subscribers and listeners.

Spotify Lost Over $4 Billion (So Far) Over Joe Rogan!

In less than a week, Spotify lost more than $4 billion in market value, after choosing to stick with Joe Rogan!

 

Spotify Backs Joe Rogan, Removes Neil Young

The whole Spotify-Joe Rogan debacle started on 25 January 2022, when Neil Young asked Spotify to remove his music, if they refuse to remove Joe Rogan’s podcasts.

I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform. They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.

I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.

Without even pretending to show some faux PR concern, Spotify backed their star act – Joe Rogan – and immediately  from their platform the next day.

Spotify Lost Over $4 Billion (So Far) Over Joe Rogan!

Spotify was probably hoping that people will ignore the “rants of an ageing musician” and stick with “misinformation from an ageing reality show host”. Unfortunately, the customers and shareholders appear to disagree.

Right after Spotify removed Neil Young’s music from their platform, the hashtags #DeleteSpotify and #CancelSpotify started trending on social media.

By close of the market on Friday, 28 January 2022, Spotify share price was down 12%, wiping out about $4 billion of its market value.

As of Monday, 31 January 2022, Spotify shares are up 4.4% from Friday’s bottom price of $165.72, but its share price is expected to continue sliding with news of more artists and subscribers leaving…

  • 27 January : Spotify shut its live customer service, after it was inundated with complaints and requests to cancel subscriptions.
  • 27 January : Mia Farrow mocked Spotify for choosing “to keep creepy, dangerous liar Joe Rogan over Neil Young“.
  • 27 January : WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus thanked Neil Young for “standing up against misinformation and inaccuracies around #COVID19 vaccination.
  • 28 January : Joni Mitchell asked Spotify to remove all of her music, in solidarity with Neil Young.
  • 28 January : Daryl Hannah criticised Spotify for choosing to “make $$$ off disinformation that harms folks“.
  • 28 January : Spotify started telling customers they cannot allow cancellations because their customer service system was overwhelmed with cancellation requests.
  • 28 January : Perry Farrell tweeted that he planned to follow Neil Young.
  • 29 January : James Blunt jokingly threatened to release new music on Spotify if they don’t remove Joe Rogan, while calling it #YouWereBeautiful
  • 29 January : Crazy Horse guitarist, Nils Lofgren, also asked Spotify to remove his music.
  • 29 January : Spotify podcaster Brené Brown announced that she “will not be releasing any podcasts until further notice“.

 

Should You Boycott Spotify For Supporting Joe Rogan?

In a follow-up post, Neil Young called Spotify the “home of life threatening COVID misinformation“, and a “damaging force” in the fight against lies and misinformation.

I agree with Neil, and point out that it took his gutsy move to bring this out into the open, and force Spotify’s hand – was it merely oversight, or an intentional choice?

Spotify made their choice, and it’s time for us to make ours.

Neil called on other artists and record companies to also remove their content, and stop supporting its “deadly misinformation about COVID“.

I sincerely hope that other artists and record companies will move off the SPOTIFY platform and stop supporting SPOTIFY’s deadly misinformation about COVID.

We should make the same choice too. Stop listening to Spotify. Cancel your subscription. Close your account.

Tell your friends about the day Spotify chose misinformation over the truth. Choose truth over lies.

Spotify Backs Anti-Vax Joe Rogan, Removes Neil Young!

It’s official – Spotify opted to back renown anti-vaxxer Joe Rogan, and remove Neil Young!

Here is what you need to know about Spotify’s decision in the Neil Young-Joe Rogan controversy!

 

Neil Young To Spotify : Remove Joe Rogan Or My Music!

Joe Rogan has long been an icon of the anti-vaccination movement, which got a big boost when Spotify paid him US$100 million for the exclusive rights to his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE).

He used that platform to give anti-vaxxers like Robert Malone exposure, and the opportunity to spread even more misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines.

This troubled Neil Young so much, he wrote an open letter to Frank Gironda (his manager) and Tom Corson (Co-Chairman and CEO of Warner Records), asking them to remove his music from Spotify :

I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform. They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.

With an estimated 11 million listeners per episode, JRE, which is hosted exclusively on Spotify, is the world’s largest podcast and has tremendous influence.

Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, though the company presently has no misinformation policy.

I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.

 

Spotify Backs Anti-Vax Joe Rogan, Removes Neil Young!

Instead of addressing his concerns, Spotify responded by removing Neil Young’s music.

They did not issue an official press release, but confirmed to Hollywood Reporter on 26 January 2022 :

We want all the world’s music and audio content to be available to Spotify users. With that comes great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators.

We have detailed content policies in place and we’ve removed over 20,000 podcast episodes related to Covid since the start of the pandemic.

We regret Neil’s decision to remove his music from Spotify, but hope to welcome him back soon.

Interestingly, their spokesperson avoided mentioning Joe Rogan, or explain why they did not sanction or warn him about the anti-vaccination misinformation he had been spreading in his podcasts.

 

Should You Boycott Spotify For Supporting Antivax Joe Rogan?

In a follow-up post, Neil Young called Spotify the “home of life threatening COVID misinformation“, and a “damaging force” in the fight against lies and misinformation.

SPOTIFY has recently become a very damaging force via its public misinformation and lies about COVID.

I first learned of this problem by reading that 200 plus doctors had joined forces, taking on the dangerous life-threatening COVID falsehoods found in SPOTIFY programming.

Most of the listeners hearing the unfactual, misleading and false COVID information on SPOTIFY are 24 years old, impressionable and easy to swing to the wrong side of the truth.

These young people believe SPOTIFY would never present grossly unfactual information. They unfortunately are wrong. I knew I had to try to point that out.

I agree with Neil, and point out that it took his gutsy move to bring this out into the open, and force Spotify’s hand – was it merely an oversight, or an intentional choice?

Spotify made their choice, and it’s time for us to make ours.

Neil called on other artists and record companies to also remove their content, and stop supporting its “deadly misinformation about COVID“.

I sincerely hope that other artists and record companies will move off the SPOTIFY platform and stop supporting SPOTIFY’s deadly misinformation about COVID.

We should make the same choice too. Stop listening to Spotify. Cancel your subscription. Close your account.

Tell your friends about the day Spotify chose misinformation over the truth. Choose truth over lies.

>LSX’s gently curved cabinet was designed with extensive use of Finite Element Analysis as well as  constrained layer damping as found in KEF’s high-end audiophile products.LSX was designed by designer Michael Young who has created a masterpiece of understated elegance and comes in a choice of five colours – Black, Blue, Maroon, and Olive. They are clad in a luxury fabric by Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat – and a striking Gloss White.

The Digi Freedom to Internet Offers

First, let us remind you that freedom is NOT free – Digi is not giving away anything free. What they’re offering is a clearer, easier way to manage your costs while getting the services you want at a lower cost.

Video Freedom

[adrotate group=”2″]

For only RM 5 per month, Digi customers can buy 5 GB of video streaming quota to get access to and watch premium TV series and movies on Viu. Digi will offer launch a similar offer for iflix and Tonton very soon.

The Spotify Q&A Session With Sunita Kaur

Earlier this week, we were invited to an exclusive media session with Sunita Kaur, the Managing Director for Spotify Asia and Benjamin Chelliah, Head of PR for Spotify Asia. Join us for this exclusive Q&A session!

 

The Spotify Q&A Session With Sunita Kaur

Spotify hosted this media session to provide updates on the listening habits and statistics of Spotify users both in Malaysia and around Asia. During the session, Sunita shared that :

[adrotate banner=”4″]
  • 1 in 4 people with internet access are streaming on Spotify.
  • Over the past 12 months, Malaysians have streamed at least 7.5 billion minutes worth of music.
  • Malaysians spend on average 148 minutes per day streaming on Spotify
  • The most streamed artists are The Chainsmokers, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd.
  • The most listened to albums are Starboy, Shape of You and 24k Magic.
  • The top streamed songs are Shape of You, Say You Won’t Let Go and Paris.
  • The peak stream period is between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
  • The most streamed genres are Pop, Hip Hop and EDM/Dance.

Sunita also shared that Mr. James Yeow, Deputy President of the Malaysian Society for Music in Medicine (MSMM) and Senior Lecturer at HELP University Psychology Department, helped Spotify in creating specific playlists for different times of the day, like :

  • The Early Birds (5 am to 9 am) – In Malaysia, “Fun Workout” is the one of the more popular playlist in the morning. Spotify users love high intensity pop to kick start their morning routine. Other early bird favourites include, strong beats from “Good Morning Malaysia!” while “Morning Stroll” shows that not all who wake up early are in a rush to get about.
  • The Busy Bees (9 am to 12 pm) – It is interesting to note that, the “Deep Focus” playlist is frequently streamed at this time. Malaysian users also love “Acoustic Favourites” and “It’s a Hit”, a wonderful mix of the hottest songs packed together to keep them company through the morning rush.
  • The Midday Zombies (12 pm to 5 pm) – It comes as no surprise that “Pop Waktu Kerja” and “Top Hits Malaysia” are popular playlists during these times, especially since they are perfect break time music for those in need of a little boost. Many also enjoy their “Light & Easy” playlist to breeze through their afternoons with light pop.
  • The Night Riders (6 pm to 10 pm) – Malaysian users love to unwind with upbeat house tunes from our “Night Rider” playlist. On that upbeat note, Malaysians definitely know how to make the most out of their nights with “Rock Jiwang” and “Party Life”.
  • The Dream Chasers (10 pm to 1 am) – Playlists such as “Sleep” and “Nature Noise” encourage deep sleep by turning our busy beta brain waves into anxiety-free alpha or dreamlike delta waves. Whilst, popular and sedative music around 60 beats per minutes found within the “Before Tidur” playlist is also a great way to elicit deep sleep.
