Great news for new Spotify Open users

It’s all good news at the moment. First, we become better friends with Facebook. Now we’re removing time limits for all new users. It seems only right to give you more time to discover more music!

So, from today, there’ll be no more Spotify Open. Everybody who listens to Spotify for free will simply have a Spotify account.

All Spotify accounts come with a 6-month time-limit honeymoon! During this time, there’s no limit to the amount of ad-supported music you can enjoy. After 6 months, you’ll be limited to 10 hours of streaming a month and a 5-play limit for any individual track. Unless, of course, you’ve subscribed by then!

How does this affect existing Spotify Open users?

If you’ve had your Spotify Open account for less than six months, you’ll discover that your time cap has gone. And it’ll stay gone until your account reaches its six-month birthday. Enjoy the extra music.

If you’ve had your Spotify Open account for more than six months, you’ll still be limited by time. As you’ve been with us for a while, the chances are you also enjoyed a six-month period without time limits when you first joined.

What about paid accounts?

There’ll be no change to our paying subscribers – Spotify Unlimited and Spotify Premium will carry on giving joy as normal.

Happy listening!
