Spotify family plan now matches Apple Music and Google Play Music for cost per family of six
Spotify has upgraded its family plan, now allowing up to six Premium accounts per family for $14.99 a month. The new plan is a direct match to Apple Music's family plan — which Google Play also matched back in December — and is a dramatic improvement over Spotify's old family offering, which would've cost users $30 a month for family of five (there was no six-person plan available before today).
Spotify says users under the family plan will all have their own separate premium accounts and full access to Spotify's library of songs and videos. Current Spotify family plan subscribers will automatically get upgraded to the new plan and likely see a lower bill in the next month. The new family plan is rolling out globally today — except if you live in Canada.
