Spotify is finally letting subscribers share their accounts with family and friends. The streaming music service is unveiling Spotify Family today, a way to share a premium subscription with up to four other Spotify 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. Spotify says the new plans will be made available globally in the coming weeks.
While Spotify will share the premium subscription across all users, accounts will remain separate so that playlists and recommendations aren’t mixed into a single shared account. A single premium subscription is currently priced at $9.99 per month, so the new family pricing works out at an extra $5 per user. It’s a highly requested feature, and one that rival Rdio has offered for more than a year now, albeit at a slightly higher cost.
