How to get Spotify Premium for Free (PC & Mobile)

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to listen to Spotify Premium for Free on your Windows PC or Mobile Phone (without buying the subscription plan).

Spotify has 209 million active free users who have to bear a flurry of annoying ads every few songs, can’t enjoy their music offline, and don’t have access to several other features included in its Premium Plan. I’ve tried the Premium Family Package for a year, and I’d say it’s worth the money. But recently, I was re-evaluating our monthly budget, and was forced to make a few cuts.

One of the painful decisions was discontinuing with Spotify. It’s priced at ₹179 per month (which is great value for 6 accounts). They also have a student discount priced at ₹60 per month, which is fantastic if you have a university email account. But none of my family members use it as frequently as we should to make the most out of it, so it doesn’t make economic sense for us.

Of course, I started missing the Premium features just hours into my downgraded account, and so I started scourging the dark corners of the internet for hacks & cracks. I’m sharing the two options that worked for me, just for folks who are also feeling the heat and need to make do with free, too.

How to Crack Spotify Premium for PC

I used an external plugin called SpotX to patch my core Spotify file on my Windows 10 PC.

Follow these instructions:

  • First, you need to have Spotify’s Windows app installed on your PC. Log into your free account & close the app.
  • Second, google “SpotX Github,”which will take you to the Github page of this hack tool.
  • Scroll down to find the “Fast Installation/Update” section & download the Batch file. Click the downloaded file & run it.
  • If your Windows PC puts up a malware warning, click “Learn More” & “Run anyway.” If your Spotify isn’t updated, the tool will ask for permission to update it to the latest version as that’s the only way you can enjoy the cracked features.
  • Once updated, let the tool do its thing. It will ask you a couple of questions & you can respond as per your custom requirements (e.g. Do you want to turn off podcasts?)
  • Once the modification is done, it’ll display a success message, after which you can start your Spotify app & enjoy an ads-free listening experience.

How to Crack Spotify Premium for for Mobile

For this, you’ll need an .APK file, which stands for Android Package. It’s like an .EXE file but for your mobile phone. Just like we use .EXE to install software on our PC, we use .APK files to install cracked apps on our Android mobile phones.

  • Download the free version of ProtonVPN on your Windows PC, which will allow you to spoof your location (e.g. browsing from Netherlands), and therfore bypass any bans on torrent-sharing websites in your country.
  • Download & install “µTorrent Classic for Windows PC.” We’ll need this software to download torrents files on the PC.
  • Turn on the VPN, and visit Torlock or Piratebay. These are hubs for getting P2P crack files for any apps, movies, books, etc. Search “spotify” & locate the best torrent with the highest seeders. It should be an Android Application file.
  • Click the Magnet icon, which will open up your µTorrent. Once the torrent is downloaded, click it to locate the folder it has been stored in.
  • Use Web WhatsApp or email/FB Messenger to send yourself the APK modified file.
  • On your mobile phone, download the APK. The system will warn you that installing apps from this source might be dangerous. Find & tap the “Allow WhatsApp to install apps” button.
  • Install the APK file & enjoy a Spotify Premium Experience.
  • The only caveat is that you might not be able to listen offline, which is a fair compromise in my opinion, given that mobile data packages are now cheap in India so you can afford to keep the internet on, and you won’t be bombarded with ads in between your favorite songs.


So that was my quick guide on how to listen to Spotify Premium for Free on your mobile phone or Windows PC Computer. Did you find it useful? Share this with your friends & let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
