Why is Spotify so popular?

If you’re not subscribed to any music service but would like to give one of them a try, Spotify is probably the best choice out there. It’s the leading music-streaming service with almost twice as many paid subscribers as Apple Music.

Spotify is more broadly available on various devices, sports a nicer user interface and has more curated playlists than Apple’s offering. And with 80+ million tracks and four million podcasts, there’s always something interesting to listen to on Spotify. Read: How to transfer liked songs and playlists from Spotify to Apple Music

Beware of unwanted charges

As is the case with these promos, you’re advised to read the fine print carefully. You do get three months of service for free, but you’ll need to provide a payment method when signing up for this promotion.

And you know what happens after your free trial ends, no? That’s right, your subscription will renew automatically each month unless you cancel before your trial period ends. Read: How to cancel your Spotify Premium subscription
