If you have subscribed to the Spotify music platform, the pill may have trouble passing. As the Parisian reports, the streaming platform has announced a increase in its prices in 52 countries. And France is well concerned. This increase concerns the premium subscription which crosses, for the first time, the bar of ten euros. Until then billed € 9.99 per month, the subscription is increased by a euro, or € 10.99 monthly. A price in line with those offered by its competitors, namely Deezer or Apple Music.

“The market landscape has continued to evolve since our launch. In order to continue to innovate, we modify our premium prices on a certain number of markets around the world. These updates will help us continue to offer value to fans and artists on our platform, “said the Swedish music platform in a press release. Spotify had hinted at the end of last year that she could increase her prices, at the very moment when her occurrants had done so.

And these are All subscription formulas that are increased, Since the “duo” offer, which gives access to two premium accounts, goes from € 12.99 to € 14.99. Ditto for the “Family” formula (four accounts under one roof) which goes from € 15.99 to € 17.99. Finally, the student formula is not to be outdone since the subscription also climbs one euro to be billed at € 5.99. Spotify has announced new features in recent months, in particular to improve the user experience, but this price increase is not accompanied by any novelty, which is already accused by many customers.

Spotify: The price of your subscription will increase by 10 to 20 % in France

Spotify has increased its prices in France, with an individual subscription which increases to 11 euros per month and a family subscription which increases by two euros.

Spotify will not have long been converting. While we learned this morning that the music streaming service thought of increasing the price of its premium subscription, it is now done in France. On its website, Spotify now announces a price offered at 10.99 euros per month, against 9.99 euros per month so far.

For their part, the duo’s offer increases to 14.99 euros per month, the family offer at 17.99 euros per month and the student offer at 5.99 euros per month. It is thus all the prices of Spotify Premium which increases from Monday, July 24.

Old price New price Evolution
Staff 9.99 euros 10.99 euros +10 %
Duo 12.99 euros 14.99 euros +15 %
Family 15.99 euros 17.99 euros +13 %
Students 4.99 euros 5.99 euros +20 %

When the price increase is reported at the initial rate, it is the subscription for students who increase the most, around 20 %, followed by the duo offer, with an increase of 20 %. The personal subscription is relatively preserved, with an increase of 10 %.

An increase in price, without new features

The fact remains that these price increases are particularly complicated to swallow for users, especially given the absence of additional features or another tranche in terms of audio quality. We have been waiting for more than two years the arrival of hi-fi quality on Spotify, a feature already announced by the Swedish streaming platform, but many times pushed-although it has not yet been launched.

The same goes for space audio which is increasingly present on other services – Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music – without additional cost. On the Spotify side, these features are expected to require a higher price subscription.

Note, however, that Spotify is not the only music service to have increased its prices. For their part, Deezer and Apple Music also offer paid offers from 10.99 euros per month.

Article of July 24, 2023 at 11:53 am:

We already announced it to you in 2022: Spotify has been planning for some time to increase the price of its premium subscription. But since then, the streaming platform has not shown no sign confirming the rumor. We would almost have thought, precisely, that all of this was only a rumor, if it was not for the Wall Street Journal which confirmed our worst fears in a recent report.

According to the American newspaper, this is just a matter of time before the platform increases the price of its monthly subscription in the United States by $ 1, which obtained this information from an anonymous source. The formula will thus cost $ 10.99 per month to paid users. The change should take place in the coming weeks, without any specific date for the moment.

Expect an increase in prices on your Spotify subscription

Nothing is confirmed at the moment, but of course we must expect that this increase applies to all the markets where Spotify is present. According to the Wall Street Journal, the increase should be effective ” in the coming months “. Impossible for the time being precisely when it will take place. On the other hand, one can speculate quite easily on the future price of the premium subscription.

The formula currently costing $ 9.99 in the United States and 9.99 euros in France, we can logically deduce that the subscription will be € 10.99 afterward. Of course, this remains to be confirmed. One thing is certain, however, musical streaming is done more dear. With the rise in prices at Apple Music last year, and the upcoming arrival of streaming platforms, it becomes necessary to carefully choose your streaming platform.
