Spotify is testing out new music streaming plans, including one option offering streaming for $0.99 a month.
A reader for tech site The Verge shared screenshots of an offered plan called Spotify Plus, which would remain supported by ads but include features such as on-demand listening and unlimited skips of songs.
In a statement emailed to USA TODAY, Spotify said it’s currently conducting a test of an ad-supported subscription plan with a select group of users.
The company said the tests may lead to new offerings or updates or help them learn more about their users. Some Spotify users who see the tests might also see plans available at various prices.
