Spotify triples its free Premium trial period to three months

Spotify triples its free Premium trial period to three months Spotify is fighting back against the threat of Apple Music by extending free trials of its Premium subscription. Both companies want not only to bring in paid users, but also to keep those users coming back over the long term. Previously, Spotify offered a 30-day free trial to tempt users to shell out for its Premium service. Now the company is doing its best to attract even more subscribers by upping the free trial period to 90 days. The offer is a permanent one, according to Spotify, and will be available worldwide.

Outside of Latin America, Premium Duo is available in three European countries -- Denmark, Ireland and Poland -- where it's been available since Spotify first started testing the plan in March. While Spotify doesn't say whether it plans to make Premium Duo available in the US, today's expansion suggests the company is at least considering making it available globally.

Spotify ditches its Android homescreen widget.
Spotify's latest Android update has riled some of its loyal users. The update removes the homescreen widget from Spotify's Android app. Now, to control functions like play, pause and skip, users must drag down the notification shade. While this may seem like a minor change to some, widgets are a prized Android feature, and nearly 2,000 users have petitioned the widget removal. It's unclear exactly why Spotify removed the widget, but the company seems to have felt its functions were redundant. In a statement, Spotify said, "We always take retiring features in Spotify very seriously. We're pouring our energy into new ways of creating the best experience for our users.
