How to activate Spotify Premium: You have been trying the free version of Spotify for a few weeks and, since you were satisfied with it (limitations of the free version aside), now you would like to activate the Premium version of this famous music streaming service. If you have ended up on this article, however, I understand that you do not know how to activate Spotify Premium and, for this reason, you would like me to give you a hand. Did I guess? Well, in this case I am happy to inform you that you have come to the right place at the right time! In the next paragraphs, in fact, I will explain to you in detail how you can activate the Premium version of Spotify on your PC or on your Android or iOS device. You will see, it will be a very simple operation!

By activating Spotify Premium, you can finally say goodbye to the limits that unfortunately characterize the free version of the service: the inability to download songs to listen to them offline, the presence of commercial breaks, the streaming quality limited to only 160 kbps and above all, the ability to play the songs exclusively in shuffle mode from a smartphone, which forces the user to listen to the songs in random mode without being able to independently choose which songs to play and in what order.

I would say, therefore, not to waste any more time in chatting and to go straight into the heart of this post. Make yourself comfortable, take all the time you need to read the information you find below and put into practice the “tips” I am about to give you. I wish you good reading and, above all, good listening on Spotify Premium!
