Spotify's Five Plays per Track policy for free users lifted in the UK

Spotify removes its five play track limit in the UK

| Apps News | Posted: Mar 19, 2013 2:25 pm

Over the last several months free users of Spotify's music streaming service have been increasingly experiencing caps on how many times they can listen to a specific track. The limits seem to take effect after the six month free trial period has expired.

UK users have been limited to five plays per track unless they subscribe to Spotify, but as of today, that limit has been lifted. In a statement on the company's blog Spotify said: We've got some mighty fine news for all Spotify Free users. From today, there's no more 5 play-per-song limit. You can listen to your favorite songs as many times as you like.

 

The company went on to state:

 

That's right, no more greyed-out songs. The tracks that you couldn't listen to before will once again be available for your listening pleasure...Of course, if you've been using Spotify for less than 6 months, this change won't affect you. You can already listen to whatever you want, as often as you like.
