Spotify Changes Free Streaming Plan, Again

Back in September of 2011, Spotify changed up their 10-hour-per-month free (well, ad-supported) music streaming plan so that you get unlimited music for six months after you sign up, and after that it will go down to 10 hours per month. Well, six months has passed, and Spotify is changing things up yet again.

For those of you who don't know, Spotify is an online music streaming service. They offer a "free" plan where you will have to listen to the occasional ad, or they have two paid plans. One is $4.99 per month, which scores you no ads. The other paid plan is $9.99 per month, which scores you no ads, streaming on devices other than your computer, and an offline mode where you can cache playlists for listening when you don't have access to the internet. Their library is gigantic, and it's rare to find a song that they don't have. 

Spotify is now extending the period where you get unlimited free (ad-supported) music streaming. They didn't say how long this would be going on, for. Obviously this is awesome, because more music generally equals more fun. I only wish they'd let me know when my party will end. You can read the announcement here
