Music streaming has taken a big part of the music industry, with services like Pandora, Spotify and Rdio. Of the bunch, Spotify has just launched their new family plans.
The service was first announced in late October, and Spotify has kept to its word by launching the new plans just a few weeks later. With Spotify Family, a Premium user can add up to four family members at a discounted rate to access their own independent Premium accounts, so that they get all of the bells and whistles (like unlimited, ad-free streaming and offline music listening) without having to pay the full $9.99 per month separately.
The pricing begins at $19.99 for one Premium user and one family member. Each additional Premium account will run $5. It breaks down as such:
- Premium Member + 1 Family Member: $14.99 per month
- Premium Member + 2 Family Members: $19.99 per month
- Premium Member + 3 Family Members: $24.99 per month
- Premium Member + 4 Family Members: $29.99 per month
After signing up for Spotify Family, members will be able to access their own Playlists, use Discover to find new music and rate music to better formulate recommendations. All without nosing in another family member’s listening habits. Spotify Family is available now.
