Spotify Opens Free Service to All Comers in US

 |  |  |  |  September 23, 2011

Listen up music fans, we have some good news for you. I would bet that a bunch of you tried to get in on the free program that Spotify offered for listening for up to ten hours a month when it landed in the states a few months back. The catch was that you had to get an invite from Spotify or a friend that was invited.


The need for an invite meant a bunch of folks couldn’t access the free service and had to pay for the monthly service instead. Spotify and Facebook have tied up with a new offering that will allow Spotify users to share what they are listening to on Facebook. That also means that if you have a Facebook account you can access Spotify with no invite and at no charge for six months.

The six month free service with your Facebook login is unlimited listening too. That means the ten-hour free limit that is normally applied is nowhere to be seen for the full six months. After that six-month period, you can keep the free ten-hour monthly service or buy the premium service to continue.
