UNITED STATES: Spotify, the popular music streaming service, recently made a significant announcement regarding a global subscription price increase.

In their official statement, Spotify stated, “So that we can keep innovating, we are changing our premium prices across a number of markets around the world. These updates will help us continue to deliver value to fans and artists on our platform.”
Starting Monday (24 Jul), subscribers will be receiving an informative email detailing the implications for their accounts.
Spotify assured that all subscribers affected by the price increase will receive personalized emails. Existing customers will be granted a generous one-month grace period before the new prices take effect.
For devoted users of the Spotify Premium package, expect to receive an email notification along with a two-month grace period to embrace the new pricing, unless the customer cancels before the grace period ends.

Spotify’s decision to increase subscription prices isn’t all that surprising, due to Apple Music having raised its subscription price by $ 1 to $ 10.99 per month or $ 109 per year back in October.
Moreover, Amazon Music and Youtube Music have also recently joined the trend by increasing their standard subscription rate to $10.99 per month.
Spotify’s decision to adjust their prices showcases their commitment to continuous innovation, ensuring a harmonious experience for both users and artists alike.
