Spotify dismisses plan for unlimited downloads

No truth in £9.99 monthly subscription rumour

Swedish internet radio station Spotify has denied it is planning to launch an unlimited download service for its users.

Rumours surfaced on the web today over a £9.99 monthly deal that would allow users to download as many tracks as they wanted per month. However, the music-streaming service told Pocket-lint the reports were false.

"Spotify's core aim is to provide a user-friendly music streaming service with the added flexibility of offering paid-for downloads in partnership with our external partners. That is not set to change," the service said.

Last month, Spotify announced a partnership with 7Digital that enables users to click through to 7Digital's site and purchase a 320kbps MP3 file of the track playing on the service.
