When Beats Music first burst onto the scene, it offered a few new features we hadn’t seen in competing streaming services, but the most exciting was the company’s super-cheap family plan that was originally available from AT&T (and has since been retired.) Now, Spotify is introducing its own competing shared plan, though you won’t save as much money as you would through Beats.
Spotify Family will let you add up to four extra accounts for $5 each when it launches in the near future. That means a one-person account still costs $9.99 per month, but adding a second person brings up the price to just $14.99. An account for three people will cost $19.99, you’ll pay $24.99 per month for four users and $29.99 for five users.
Spotify Family is still a pretty good deal though, and it’s a smart way to bring more people onto the company’s paid subscription service. If a family member already uses the service, you can jump onboard for just $5 per month, while families that are sick of sharing a single account may be more likely to pay a little extra for separate profiles.
The new family plan isn’t available just yet, but the company promises it’s launching “soon.”
