Spotify announces the launch of its upgraded Spotify Premium Family plan that gives families even more ways to make enjoying music as a family even better -- and all for the same price of $/£14.99. The updated Spotify Premium Family plan gives family members living under one roof more choices to customize music streaming and podcasts, and still with an unparalleled ad-free on-demand music listening experience.
With the new Premium Family plan, family members will keep everything that they love about the current plan, but now with more ways to enjoy it including:
Parental Controls: A long-requested feature on Community boards, parents will now be able to control the Explicit Content Filter setting of all other accounts on their plan.
Family Mix: Families will get exclusive access to a personalized playlist packed with songs the whole family enjoys. Family Mix is updated regularly and you can control who is in each session to optimize your family’s favourite shared listening moments.
Family Hub: Billing users can now manage their Family’s settings in one place, including adding or removing family members, keeping your home address up to date, and adjusting your parental controls.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve the Spotify Premium experience, and the upgraded Premium Family plan brings new features to how families enjoy listening to music and podcasts they love.” said Alex Norstrom, Chief Premium Business Officer, Spotify. “At a time where parents are trying to reduce screen time for both themselves and their family, we’re creating more ways for families to bond over music together, while still celebrating individual tastes and giving parents more control if they want it.”
Since its launch in 2014, Spotify Premium Family has seen incredible growth with millions of subscribers in more than 60 countries around the world that have access to more than 50 million tracks and 450,000 podcast titles --creating endless possibilities for family members to choose the beat that matches their mood.
With new features like Family Mix, personalized playlists packed with the whole family enjoys are updated regularly so families always have fresh music to listen to together. Whether it’s on the morning commute, cooking dinner, or family time on weekends, Family Mix brings the tastes of your whole family together.
Shallow by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, Sunflower - Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse by Post Malone and Swae Lee, and Happier by Bastille and Marshmello are the top most streamed songs globally across Family plan members
The most listened to artists by Spotify Premium Family subscribers globally include Ariana Grande, Drake, Queen, Billie Eilish and Khalid
Spotify continues to provide content for the whole family, including the recent launch of its Disney Hub in select markets. The Disney Hub gives families access to soundtracks from Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies, Star Wars instrumentals, classics, sing-alongs and more - another way Spotify is giving members more of the music they love. We’ve already seen playlists like Disney Hits, Disney Favourites, Disney Sing-Alongs, The Lion King and Disney Princess take off globally. In short, Spotify Premium Family users can feel free to blast their favourite Disney songs all day and all night long.
The upgraded plan is available now in Ireland and will be rolling out to all markets with Premium Family this fall. Existing Spotify Premium Family users will be notified as soon as the upgraded Family Plan is available.
