Spotify will require family plan members to prove that they are all living at the same address, in a revived initiative to prevent abuse of the subscription option. Spotify, apparently, wants to stop that from happening. This is not the first time that Spotify has tried to limit the number of people subscribing to its family plan. Last year, the music streaming service asked certain members to confirm their location by giving their GPS coordinates. The pilot program was abruptly ended due to privacy concerns.
Couples with no kids can save $7/mo and get access to middle-ground playlists.
Spotify Family Plan: What does it include?
Spotify customers are complaining that strangers are breaking into their Family accounts, years after the problem was first raised with the music-streaming service. However, members of the Spotify subreddit are complaining that strangers are barging into their Family accounts, allowing them to freeload on a premium subscription. One customer claims four stranger profiles were set up on their Family account. Not even sure when it happened or how long this has been going on for. Several other customers in the same thread report similar intrusions, with complaints spanning back several years. They could also see the names of other family members, potentially children, from the Spotify website.
Subscriber Account active since. Spotify Premium is popular for a number of reasons: it's inexpensive, doesn't include ads, offers a wide variety of music, and more. With a Family Plan, members of the same household can enjoy the same Spotify Premium benefits without having to pay for multiple subscriptions. The person in your household who pays for the Spotify Premium Family Plan will need to invite you to join their "Family" before you can reap the benefits of the Premium subscription. You won't be able to use the Premium subscription until you accept the invite. Here's how to accept it, and what you'll need to do once you do. This can be done on your desktop computer or mobile device. In order to accept an invite to Spotify Premium Family, one of the members of your household needs to be subscribed to Spotify Premium Family in the first place. In addition, the owner of the account needs to set an address for their account before others will be allowed to join.
