The Spotify Premium Duo account is finally out! This service was tested over a year ago, but it is now available in the U.S., U.K., and more than 50 countries. But what is Spotify Premium Duo account about? It allows couples or two home to share a premium account for a total payment of $12.99 per month.
At the moment, most people are using the Premium Spotify Family plan. However, with the new premium plan out, people will be able to save $2 per month.
Here is the official statement from Spotify:
The Spotify Premium Duo service offers both parties an individual premium account. On top of that, both parties will have access to a joint playlist selected by Spotify based on their shared tastes.
You love Today’s Top Hits. Your partner is obsessed with All Out ‘80s. So deciding who gets to play D.J. at home or in the car is a constant battle.
Luckily, today Spotify is making it even easier for two people to enjoy music together (or separately) with the launch of Spotify Premium Duo – our new, first-of-its-kind subscription plan. Beginning today, Duo will be rolling out in 55 markets globally, including the U.S.
Premium Duo is for two people living at the same home address and costs $12.99 per month. Each individual gets their own Premium account under one plan in addition to the unique benefits like exclusive access to Duo Mix, a regularly updated playlist made just for the two subscribers to discover audio they both love and enjoy together.
To sign-up, visit spotify.com/duo and follow the instructions – the two users must reside at the same address to be eligible. Users who haven’t tried Premium before may be eligible to get the first month of Premium Duo for free. Existing Premium subscribers can switch to Premium Duo by visiting their account page and changing their subscription. Upgrading to Premium Duo allows subscribers to keep their existing Premium accounts along with saved music, podcasts, playlists and recommendations.
