“This is music to my ears“, writes Andrew Denham, MD of Panasonic UK, of Spotify’s plans to create a family plan with 50% discount for up to 4 additional members on the same account. I am sure Denham is not the only one finding his listening session abrupted by a family member connecting to Spotify from a different location: “Up until now we’ve had to vie for control of our Spotify account. In fact, this happens most weekday mornings as my son logs into Spotify from his smartphone on the way to school,” Denham says in his entry for Huffington Post.
According to Spotify, the service will be rolling out in the next few weeks for premium users. Pricing starts at €14.99 for two users per month, €19.99 for three, €24.99 for four, and all the way up to €29.99 for all five users. Equivalent prices in the US.
