Spotify duo plan
The family plan is one of the most popular of those available from Spotify, thanks to the fact that it offers “Premium” access to up to six different accounts; as the name suggests, this makes it ideal for all family members to access the benefits of Premium.
The email, which for now is only reaching private users and not the press, indicates that the new price of Spotify’s family plan will be 15.99 euros per month; therefore, it is up one euro from the 14.99 euros that users were paying until now.
This change is already reflected on Spotify’s official website, where buying the family plan already costs 15.99 euros per month for new users. However, to ease the transition to the new price, Spotify is going to give an extra month to users who already have the plan.
If you do not want to pay more, at least Spotify offers an alternative: the Spotify Premium Duo plan, whose price remains at 12.99 euros for two Premium accounts. Now that it has a difference of three euros compared to the family plan, it may be more worthwhile if only two family members use Spotify.
To join the Family Plan you have to live with the plan administrator, create your own Spotify account and receive an invitation to join the plan. If you already have a Spotify account, you will be able to keep the account you already have and all the information you already have stored in it,
The plan administrator cannot be changed. In case you want to change it, you will have to cancel the plan and all accounts will return to the free service. From the next billing, a new administrator will be able to open a new plan and send invitations to all the people.
The administrator will also be in charge of changing the home address, either because you have made a mistake or because you are moving. Just go to the Spotify “family” page and follow the steps the service tells you to follow.
Even if everyone has their own tastes, there are times when you will all be together. For example, car trips or family gatherings. In that case, Spotify Family Plan members have access to Family Mix. Family Mix is a history-based playlist of everything members listen to and is constantly updated. So there will be a mix of everything you like.
The Spotify Premium subscription allows you to install it on a maximum of 3 different devices. If you install it on a fourth device, you will no longer have the subscription available on the first device you installed it on and so on.
No, it is monthly but the period starts counting the day you activate your subscription. Additionally, if you have a mobile contract, you must take into account that the billing period runs from the 18th to the 17th of the following month. Thus, for example, if you activate your subscription on April 25, your bill from April 18 to May 17 will include the monthly fee for the month from April 25 to May 25.
You will pay it as you pay for other services with a monthly fee. Each month we will deduct your subscription fee from your balance. If one month you do not have enough credit, you will have 10 days to recharge. If during this period we cannot deduct the fees from your balance, we will cancel your Spotify Premium subscription and you will not be able to enjoy it again with the 40% discount. However, you will be able to re-subscribe directly on Spotify and also use your Spotify Free account.

In the case of Spotify, that picaresque comes through the family plan, that subscription that costs 14.99 euros and is valid for up to six members, which covers families of up to four children, or five, if there is only one parent or guardian. It is through it that Spotify believes it is missing out on revenue, as many users use it to pay just €2.5 a month to access its service.
To avoid that problem, Spotify came up with a first measure, which was to have each user type in the postal address of their account and check if it matched that of the family rate holder. If it didn’t, we had a problem but, as with everything, all users quickly caught on and figured out how to bypass that check.
Now, when sending the invitation, the new user will see that Spotify asks them to enable GPS location and enter the address where we are. If we are not physically at the home of the rate holder, we will not be able to complete it so it will be impossible to access the paid content and we will be left with a free account.
