Today after the press conference the website got updated and Unlimited is now no longer an option for new users. You have Free and you have Premium as your choices for a subscription. I myself am currently a Spotify Unlimited user since I use Spotify on my computer exclusively.
First things first, what will happen to my current Unlimited subscription?
Secondly, out of curiosity I tried to log on to Spotify on my cell phone (Android) and try the new Shuffle feature available for Free users. What happened was that, even if I could log in, I couldn't actually play anything. The "Shuffle Play" button wasn't even present and when I tried to press Radio I was confronted with a message saying I need to upgrade to Premium to use that feature.
Shouldn't Unlimited users at least be able to use the mobile version in the same manner as Free users?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Don't worry. If you have Unlimited you should still be able to keep your subscription without any problems. Should you unsubscribe for any reason, you can sign up for Unlimited from your subscription page on our website.
The reason we do not offer Unlimited in our new markets is because we’re seeing a huge global mobile shift, resulting in less people paying to use Spotify solely on their desktop and making Spotify Premium more popular than ever. On top of that, Spotify is now free across all platforms, so it made sense to simplify our product offering.
To be clear, we have no plans to automatically upgrade any of our Unlimited users to Premium.
