Streaming music giant Spotify Technology has finally launched one of the most requested features to South African users – a discounted family plan allowing family members to get access for R99.99/month, or R40 more than a single-user subscription.
Spotify Premium Family is available to up to six family members, including the primary account holder, living under one roof.
Under the terms and conditions on its website, Spotify states that “the subsidiary account holders must be family members residing at the same address”.
“Upon activation of a subsidiary Premium Family account, you will be asked to verify your home address. We may from time to time ask for re-verification of your home address in order to confirm that you are still meeting the eligibility criteria.”
“Spotify reserves the right to terminate or suspend access to the Spotify Premium Family service and the Spotify Premium Family account(s) immediately and at any time if you fail to meet the eligibility criteria and as otherwise set out in the Spotify terms and conditions of use,” it said.
“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,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
The new family plan offers:
- Family Mix: Families get access to a personalised playlist of songs the whole family enjoys. Family Mix is updated regularly.
- Parental Controls: Parents can control the explicit content filter setting of all other accounts on their plan.
- Family Hub: Billing users can manage their family’s settings in one place, including adding or removing family members. – © 2020 NewsCentral Media
