Spotify Is Going to Be Somewhat Less Awesome Soon

Posted By on Mon, Jan 9, 2012 at 12:00 PM

It certainly was fun while it lasted, having unlimited free (with a few commercials mixed in) access to nearly all of the songs, but I suppose every party comes to an end.

In one week, we'll be marking the streaming music service's six-month anniversary.

And in one week, all those users who signed up for the free all you can eat desktop music that day will find out that they're going to be limited to just 10 hours per month now. You're also only allowed to play individual tracks no more than five times per month.

[...]

Those paid plans cost $4.99 per month for ad-free desktop streaming and $9.99 for access to the mobile app.

This may not be a huge deal for most listeners, who probably won't run up against the 10 hour cap, but telling me that I can't listen to "What a Fool Believes" by the Doobie Brothers a sixth time in a month? That's just unfair.
