Spotify made it much more affordable to have your whole family on a Spotify Premium plan last month, but it didn't make the process of adding family members any easier. Late last month, Spotify changed the pricing for its family plans to match those of Apple Music and Google Play Music. This puts Spotify's family plan pricing in line with many other popular music streaming services available. Sadly, Spotify didn't make upgrading your account from Premium to Family any more intuitive, and user management could use some work. Nonetheless, here is how to upgrade your Spotify account and share your Premium access with your family. Upgrading your Spotify account to Family isn't a difficult process, but it's not immediately apparent where you need to go to make the change. Even worse, you can't make any of these changes from within the mobile or desktop Spotify apps. It all has to be done in a Web browser. If you're an existing Spotify Premium or a free user, the process for upgrading to Spotify Family is the same.
Spotify Family Plan: What does it include?
Is Spotify security strong enough?
Couples with no kids can save $7/mo and get access to middle-ground playlists.
Spotify customers are complaining that strangers are breaking into their Family accounts, years after the problem was first raised with the music-streaming service. However, members of the Spotify subreddit are complaining that strangers are barging into their Family accounts, allowing them to freeload on a premium subscription. One customer claims four stranger profiles were set up on their Family account. Not even sure when it happened or how long this has been going on for. Several other customers in the same thread report similar intrusions, with complaints spanning back several years. They could also see the names of other family members, potentially children, from the Spotify website. Account members will be listed on the screen.
