No matter which device -- desktop, mobile, or smartwatch -- Spotify Premium allows you to skip tracks, download offline, get better audio quality, travel abroad without limitation, and a lot. To enjoy all these privileges, a regular fee is of course needed -- $10.99/month for an individual, $16.99/month for family (6 accounts), and more.

What Will Happen After Canceling Spotify Premium?

This change will strongly affect the user experience when you're traveling to a remote area, or taking a plane. Thus, if you are keen to play Spotify offline content without Premium, the next solution you can never miss.
