Spotify has announced a major price drop through December 31. “Get 3 months of Spotify Premium for only $0.99,” the company said on its website Monday (December 8). “Enjoy a whole season of offline, ad-free music.” This price drop will allow users to test the premium version of Spotify for a small fee, helping users take advantage of ad-free listening and skipping without restrictions. The offer makes giving a Spotify subscription to a family member a more affordable option for holiday gift-shopping, something the company is likely counting on. This news follows last week’s headline regarding Spotify’s consideration of a limit on its free content after share holders made a proposition for restrictions. The price drop also comes as Spotify continues its negotiations with rights holders.
