Spotify has launched a new paid plan called Premium Duo, which allows two people to get individual accounts under one plan. The subscription will cost $12.99 per month in USA and INR 149 in India.
Any two people residing at the same address can apply for the plan, which will allow them to sign-in separately using different sign-ins. All of the perks available in the Premium plan such as ad-free streaming, on-demand music and access to the millions of songs and podcast titles will be available to both the users.
Those who don’t already have a Premium subscription are also eligible to get the first month of Premium Duo for free on trial. While two people can create separate logins and accounts under the same plan, only the one who started the plan will pay the full amount.
Existing Premium subscribers can easily upgrade to the Premium Duo plan via their account page. Upgrading will carry over all your settings, saved music, playlists and recommendations to the new account.
Spotify Premium Duo plan will be available in 55 markets worldwide at the time of launch.
“Premium Duo includes our extensive music and podcast catalog and everything users love about Spotify Premium. With two individual Premium accounts, you can both listen independently, uninterrupted, and get all of your personalized playlists and features tailored just for you,” said Alex Norström, Spotify’s chief freemium business officer. “We are proud to launch Spotify Premium Duo, a first-of-its-kind audio offering for just two people in the same household.”
Premium Duo subscribers will also get access to the Duo Mix feature — similar to Family Mix available for Spotify Premium Family subscribers — which will compile a playlists of common interests shared by the two Duo subscribers based on their listening history.
