Spotify family plans challenge Xbox Music


I am sure many of us are sharing our Xbox Music subscriptions, which can work on up to 5 devices, with family, but that means we also know the struggle of constantly managing activated devices and dealing with clashing play lists.

Xbox Music used to have a family plan, but abolished it some time ago.  Now Spotify has brought it back, and for only $14.99 for 2 users, with each additional user costing $5 more, up to 5 total users.

With Spotify Family you can now invite up to four family members and share one billing account whilst keeping your listening history, recommendations and playlists completely separate.

  • Your account. Your music. With Spotify Family, everyone gets their very own account. Enjoy separate playlists and recommendations and play your music whenever you like.
  • Premium for everyone. Everyone on the plan gets the full Spotify Premium experience. Listen offline. Play any song, anytime, on any device. No restrictions. No ads.
  • The more the merrier. Having a family can be expensive. But music doesn’t have to be. With Spotify Family, you can add up to four family members to your account, and each additional user gets 50% off Spotify Premium.
  • No tantrums. No more fighting over what to listen to, and no more interruptions when someone else logs in and starts playing.

“This is one of the most asked for features from our audience,” says Ken Parks, Chief Content Officer at Spotify. “With today’s announcement we’re making it easier than ever for the whole family to experience Spotify Premium on their phones, at home and on the go.”

Spotify Family will roll out globally over the upcoming weeks. To learn more about this great new deal, click here.
