Spotify, as a popular music streaming service, provides free and premium options. Spotify premium is paid subscription. The biggest difference is that Spotify premium allows you to download playlists for offline listening, while Spotify free doesn't. Other differences include ad interruption, music quality, unlimited skips, etc. With Spotify free, you will encounter ads between tracks occasionally. The best music quality for Spotify free is 160kbps while for premium users it can be 320kbps. Spotify free users can only shuffle play songs in the playlist on mobile devices while premium users can play any song on demand.
