The new Premium Family plan costs only R100 ($5.39) and allows for up to six users on one account. The equivalent in the US costs $16 (almost R300), so this is a brilliant deal for South Africans who live under the same roof.
According to a press release from Spotify South Africa, “With Premium Family, all family members get uninterrupted access to over 50 million tracks and over one million podcast titles through their own individual Spotify Premium account – meaning that each member will have a place for their own saved music, podcasts, and playlists, and get Spotify’s recommendations for their unique listening tastes.”
Along with the new Premium Family plan, Spotify is launching three family-aimed features that go with the plan. The first is Family Mix, which creates a custom playlist using the likes and dislikes from the whole family to curate a bunch of songs it thinks everyone will like. It’s almost liked the Daily Mixes you’re used to on Spotify Premium, but including tunes the whole family enjoys.
It’ll also include parental controls that the parents of youngsters can use to moderate what they’re able to listen to.
