How to delete your Spotify account using support

Once Spotify Premium is canceled you can officially delete your Spotify account. Again, to do this, visit Spotify's support page. Due to the high volume of cancellations, on this page, you might be prompted to message the customer support team. Ignore it, and click the send message button. A support bot will pop up at the bottom of the screen to help you.

Step 1: In the support bot box, type in close my account. Once done, click the Continue to close/cancel my account option presented by the bot.

Step 2: Next up, click the close account link that the bot sends you. Answer as to why you want to cancel, and then confirm that you can indeed access the email on file. Finally, choose I understand and a request to close your account will be emailed to you.

Step 3: Look for an email from Spotify, and click the Close my account link. Clicking this link will shut down and close out your Spotify for good. The link is valid for 24 hours. If you don't click the link, after 24 hours you'll have to go through the process again.

Note that you'll also get a seven-day grace period. If you want to reactivate your Spotify, this will come as a link in a separate email after you finish canceling.

If you're wondering how long until Spotify deletes your account, then keep in mind that it's instantaneous as soon as you click the link. That's why you can always delete your Spotify account, and make a new one.
