Spotify has made it easier for students to access the streaming service.
With their existing premium plan, costing $9.99 for regular users every month, Spotify is now offering Spotify Premium for Students. This will allow students a discounted rate of $4.99/month.
This will allow students unlimited high-quality streaming, with no ads, offline streaming and, possibly in the future, early access to selected new titles.
"We are really excited to launch Spotify Premium for Students all over the world today - now the biggest and best student offer of its kind in the marketplace," says Alex Norstrom, Spotify’s Chief Premium Business Officer. "Students are among the most passionate and engaged music fans, and we're proud to be able to give millions of students the opportunity to soundtrack their lives with Spotify Premium for half price."
