EE has added Spotify to its Music Data Pass. If you have this perk enabled on your account, you'll be able to stream tracks, playlists, podcasts and albums every single waking minute of the day without eating into your 4G, or 5G data allowance.

The EE Music Data Pass was introduced as part of EE's most recent overhaul to its contract and SIM-only plans. Dubbed Swappable Benefits, EE customers can chop and change between these perks at a moment's notice.

So, if you're playing to use your iPhone to power a Bluetooth speaker at a BBQ this summer – you might be inclined to pick the Music Data Pass to avoid incurring extra charges for streaming music all day and night. Or, if you're planning a trip to the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia or New Zealand – you can use your phone as normal if you plump for the Roam Further Pass before you check-in at the airport.

Until now, the EE Music Data Pass only supported Apple Music, Tidal and Deezer. Spotify is the biggest music subscription service on the planet, so it's inclusion is a really big deal for EE customers.

As before, Swappable Benefits are available as part of the new EE Smart Plans, or can be purchased as a standalone for £7.99 per month on-top of the cost of your current contract with the UK network. All EE Smart Plan customers get access to at least one Swappable Benefit. Switching perks is handled online, or via the My EE app.
