How does Spotify Family know if you live together?

Spotify is the first and most popular music streaming service in the world. It’s also one of the most attractive services around, meaning it’s thought through to the point of perfection. It’s very easy to install, can be used for free, and offers enough low-budget plans to appeal to anyone. This is why millions of users choose Spotify Premium and Family. 

The Premium plan adds a few extra features to the already awesome Free Plan available to absolutely anyone after a very quick and simple installation. 

  1. The Free Plan offers Spotify’s services free of charge. 
  2. The Premium plan offers extra features such as no ads, improved quality, and so on (even though the quality of songs on Spotify is already higher than with its competitors). 
  3. The Family Plan allows extending the service to 5 more users for only $5 more a month, the price of a cup of good coffee.

The contract terms insist that you share Spotify with your family as long as they live at the same address. This service was invented to defy corruption, and there is a strict framework in place to ensure no abuse happens. 

Spotify will ask you to confirm that you live with the person that shared the Family Plan with you by sending you an email invite. By the way, you can still only use one device at a time. 

How does Spotify Family know if you live together? The company states they don’t track your location, so technically they just trust you to tell them the truth. 

“Member verification: 

We ask members to verify that they live with the plan manager by providing their full address:

  1. When they join
  2. If we can’t confirm their address 

Note: We don’t track your location. We only check your address to verify.”

By the way, if a family member fails to verify their address, they lose access to this plan. 

By the way, if you want to transfer playlists and tracks from/to Spotify, MusConv will be helpful for you.
