Spotify Launches Premium Duo Subscription for Couples

Spotify has been making improvements for its users recently.

Now, the streaming platform is launching a premium plan that is more affordable for those music-loving couples out there. First-time subscribers still get a month free, too. Until now, it's only been available in select countries, but it's just arrived in the United States as well as 54 other markets across the globe.

Today, Spotify launched a new streaming music subscription option aimed squarely at couples who live at the same address. This is in comparison to an individual plan which is $9.99 and a student plan which costs $4.99 per month. A Family plan membership is $2 more than Duo and supports up to six accounts.

In March of 2019, Spotify first began testing this new tier of subscription plans. Premium Duo was made available in countries including Colombia, Chile, Denmark, Ireland and Poland. Meanwhile, 63 percent say music helps build even more memories.

Along with Premium Duo, couples will have access to Duo Mix. That plan also comes with a special Family Mix playlist that promises the same thing as the Duo Mix, except it accounts for the entire family's preferences. Additionally, the two members on Premium Duo are able to create playlists and share them with each other via a Shared Playlists feature.

The launch of Premium Duo follows Spotify's launch of another multi-user product in May - Premium Family. Of course, just as is the case with the family account, Spotify actually does nothing to verify if the two accounts are really in one location as long as you fill in the same address for both.

Premium Duo costs $12.99 per month in the USA, compared to $9.99 per month for an individual Premium plan or $14.99 for a Family plan that supports up to 6 users. And if you have tried Spotify Premium previously, you can easily switch to Duo on under the "Account" section.

This will retain the user's account, along with their saved music, podcast, playlists, and recommendations.
