Spotify Starts Testing New Duo Plan for Couples

Posted on March 28, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Music + Videos, Spotify with 7 Comments

Spotify is looking to launch a new type of subscription plan. The company is testing a new Premium Duo plan for couples in some regions. The new Duo plan would join Spotify’s existing Family and Student plans if expanded worldwide.

The idea behind Spotify Premium Duo is pretty simple: it’s essentially a monthly Premium subscription that’s shared between you and your significant other. The subscription costs €12.49 a month, and only one of you needs to pay for the subscription as the primary owner of the subscription. There is a catch, though: you will now need to verify that both of you live in the same address to be eligible for the Premium Duo plan.

There’s a cute side to Premium Duo, too. Spotify offers a Duo Mix playlist that’s based on songs both of you hear and like. That playlist gets updated regularly with things you and your significant other listens to, so it’s all pretty cute:

As The Verge notes, Spotify Premium Duo is only available in 5 countries for the time being — Colombia, Chile, Denmark, Ireland and Poland. Spotify isn’t saying whether the company plans on bringing the plan to other countries, especially the more important markets like the U.S. or Europe. But if Premium Duo is a success in the first 5 regions, there is a good chance it will head to more countries later on.
