All popular music streaming services offer family plans and Spotify is one of them. The Spotify Premium Family Plan offers a shared subscription for up to six family members residing at the same address. If there are more than 2 people use Spotify in your family, then the family plan is the perfect choice. For less than the cost of two Individual Premium subscriptions, an entire household(up to 6 family members ) can enjoy Spotify Premium with separate accounts.
