That is correct, Spotify Unlimited gives you no benefits on mobile or tablet devices over Spotify free.

It doesn't give you any advantages over free on a mobile phone, yes.

you have to goto your account, then look at the service (for instance if you have free) you will see unlimited and premium which are hyper links (clickable) thats how I found out about unlimited, which is best if you use spotify from desktop, now no ads! if you want no ads on phones or tablets you will want premium.

That chart isn't correct though.

 

I'm listening to Spotify connect through my iPhone connected direct to my amp as we speak.  I have to do it (even with ads, unfortunately) as my airplay amp doesn't work - dropping connection to my iphoe with iTunes match.  I dropped my spotify sub this week as can't justify a tenner a month.

 

Just means the occasional ad - just like listening to a commercial radio station that only plays my favourite tracks randomly :)

The "play through hardware devices" refers to partner hardware devices which include a spotify app. I guess it wouldn't all fit into the box :)

Spotify Unlimited is just Spotify without ads. For mobile devices is useless...

It is uncharming.  In fact, it's rather obnoxious.  I'm a marketing tech guy in Silicon Valley and I recognize some of the bad tactics.

Essentially Spotify marketing determined that they would "push" the Premium version and hide the Unlimited version.  That's why you can't find anything on the web site, that's why there's not common sense table on the website and one had to be created by a very helpful member of the user community. 

 

I'm not bashing Spotify.  I'm just getting to know the service and I really like it.

 

I just wish their marketing team would come clean.  They have every right to change or simplify their product line to "Free" vs. "Premium" and that's it.  But if you have a mid-tiered product, e.g., Unlimited, then don't hide it and drive everyone crazy.  Have it or not.  Or set an EOL date for it.

Personally I’ve learnt everything about Premium vs Unlimited just by listening to the Spotify commercials (on Spotify itself) and reading their website. All the information has always been there.

Spotify unlimited pretty much is an EOL as it ever will be, it is no longer advertised to new customers and it is not available in any of the recent market launches. It purely lives on mainly for those legacy people who are still on the plan.

Great, please share a link from the Spotify website where Unlimited is described and compared with Free and Premium, because most of the user community cannot find this information.
