Why Spotify Premium Is Actually Worth Your $10
If you’ve been living under a rock, Spotify is a music application that compiles your personal music collection with Spotify’s own millions of tracks. Now, there are three levels of Spotify: free, unlimited, and premium. Though premium is most expensive at $9.99 a month, I think it is completely worth it, and here are five reason why:
1. No ads.
Nothing messes with your groove like an advertisement in the middle of your epic dance party playlist. Get rid of those! (Okay, you can get this with unlimited, but there’s more, I promise.)
2. Unlimited streaming.
Okay, you can get this with unlimited too (hence the name), but it’s too important not to mention. Stopping your epic dance party because you’ve reached your song limit is just as infuriating as those ads.
3. ALL THE MUSIC
“Why do I need Spotify at all?” you might ask. I’ll tell you why: because if you’re anything like me, you like an awful lot of music. And while one song is fairly cheap, they add up. Paying ten bucks for any song you can imagine makes waaaay more sense than ten dollars for (maybe) ten songs.
4. Mobile App and Offline Mode.
The only way the above makes sense is if you can access your songs all the time (i.e. iPod). Premium gets you offline access to whatever songs you want to download, as well as a mobile app, which obviously gets you access to Spotify on your mobile device of choice.
I used to be hooked on Pandora. Then I went abroad and was met with the unfortunate reality that Pandora wasn’t licensed in my new country of residence. With Spotify premium, however, you have unlimited music while you travel internationally!
There are also TONS of Spotify playlists. So if you’re looking for the music discovery Pandora offers, you can get it with Spotify, too!
If I haven’t convinced you, try it out for yourself! Spotify offers their premium service free for 30 days, go to their website and check it out!
