- Spotify is increasing its prices in Europe.
- Increases of up to £2/€3 per month are to be expected.
Music streaming service Spotify is set to increase its prices throughout Europe. Users should expect an increase of up to £2/€3 per month depending on the subscription they have.
Reported by Mashable, the price increase will begin on April 30 which means subscribers don't have all that much notice.
There is at least good news for those affected – Spotify says people will get a month at the current price before the new one kicks in. New users will presumably pay the new price from day one, however.
The move now means that Spotify is noticeably more costly than the competing Apple Music.
Whether you're using Apple Music or Spotify, these are some of the best headphones you're going to find. Your jams deserve to sound great!
