Spotify Adds a Premium Duo Subscription for Couples

Posted on July 1, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Spotify with 10 Comments

Spotify has added a Premium Duo Subscription for couples in 55 markets, complementing its individual and Family plans. The firm first started testing the service last year.

“With Spotify Premium Duo, our new, first-of-its-kind subscription plan, couples can enjoy their favorite music—together and separately,” the firm notes in the announcement. “Premium Duo is designed for audio-loving pairs living at the same address. Each individual gets their own Premium account under one plan in addition to unique benefits for couples.”

Premium Duo costs $12.99 per month in the US, compared to $9.99 per month for an individual Premium plan or $14.99 for a Family plan that supports up to 6 users. Spotify also offers a Student plan for $4.99 per month. As with Family, each Premium Duo user gets their own account with ad-free access to the entire Spotify library of over 50 million tracks.

But there is one unique perk to Duo: Subscribers can access an exclusive Duo Mix playlist that is regularly updated to help them discover audio they both love. The two users must reside at the same address to be eligible, the firm notes.

You can learn more about Spotify Premium Duo from the Spotify website.
