After a while of using Spotify’s Free Plan (if you enjoy classical music, after a short while) you’ll want to improve your experience and, for example, get rid of ads. The Premium Plan will help you with is and much more. After that, hopefully, you’ll reach a point when you’re so happy you want to share your joy with others. That’s what the Family Plan is for. Do you have a partner? Want to share your treasures with just one person for the price less than that of a cup of coffee? There’s the Duo Plan. And so on.
Let’s check out Spotify’s plans and check out what’s best for you. Here we go!
All that’s free is good, right? Well, it depends. You’ll get what you seek, which is the ecstasy of music. But with a lot of distractions like ads, lesser song quality, unlimited skips, and so on. It’s still a good service though according to Pocket Lint:
“With the Spotify free plan, you can access all playlists, discover new music and share tunes with friends. You can also play any playlist, album, or artist but only while in Shuffle Play mode.”
Premium basically is for consenting adults. Play anywhere you want, even offline, no ads, and on-demand playback. Now you’re in control.
Supports 2 accounts for only $13 a month (just $3 more than the previous plan) and gets you two accounts with no ads, regularly suggested latest tracks, and offline playing.
For another $2 you get to add up to 4 more people, a parental control feature and then one uber-parental control feature that is basically a separate account for kids. Don’t forget to tell them where you live! Not kidding: to avoid abuse, Spotify insists only family members living under the same roof are eligible for this type of account. If you fail to verify your address, say goodbye to this type of plan for a month. Ouch! What if your family lives in different places?
By the way, if you want to transfer playlists and tracks from/to Spotify, MusConv will be helpful for you.
