It's always nice to get something for free, and if you happen to be a Spotify user without a paid subscription, you're about to get a few more features for nothing. Spotify says 60 percent of its Premium users started with free accounts.
Instead of simply cracking down on restriction-dodging tactics, Spotify has made a decision to vastly improve the platform's unpaid experience, which may seem like a counterintuitive method of boosting those all-important "Premium" subscriber numbers.

One of the most important features that we are looking forward to in the update is the low data mode which is oriented towards reducing mobile data consumption for users.
Now that Spotify is officially a public company, it has to continually make more money year-over-year to appease shareholders. Whereas with a Premium subscription you could play any song you wanted whenever you wanted, Free members would be forced to hit the shuffle button if they wanted to play music.
