Martin Lewis' MSE warns Spotify customers they can save £24 from today

Martin Lewis' Money Saving Expert has warned Spotify customers they can save £24 from today. Spotify subscribers can save £24 a year by removing audiobooks from their plan, MSE - which was founded by the BBC and ITV star - has said.

If you pay for a Spotify 'Individual', 'Duo' or 'Family' subscription, you can now save up to £24 a year by switching to one of its new 'Basic' plans. These don't have audiobooks but cost £1 to £2 a month less and let you keep all your other benefits.

Most of Spotify's existing paid-for 'Premium' plans, with the exception of Student, include 15 hours a month of listening time from its audiobooks catalogue. But 'Basic' don't include audiobook access (though MSE says you keep all the other benefits).

So customers can "still get ad-free music listening, the ability to play songs in any order and download them for offline listening, high-quality audio and more," MSE reported. The Spotify catalogue currently encompasses upwards of 70% of bestselling books, with titles from major publishers including Hachette, HarperCollins Publishers, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, and RB Media, as well as independent authors and publishers globally, including Bolinda, Dreamscape, and Pushkin.

Fifteen monthly hours means that you can listen the way you want. You can also take audiobooks wherever you go, with Spotify available on over 2,000 devices from more than 200 brands, the music streamer explains on its website.

Users with Premium audiobook access can download audiobooks for offline listening as well. Spotify adds: "For those super audiophiles who use up their 15 hours before their monthly billing cycles refresh, you can purchase a 10-hour top-up to finish that series."

It adds: "One note: You must have a Premium individual account or be the plan manager for your Family or Duo account in order to take advantage of this feature. We’ll be working on more ways to unlock access to Premium audiobooks in the future, but for now, primary account holders on Family and Duo plans will receive the monthly audiobooks allocation. "
