Spotify announced on Monday (7) the Premium Duo, a new subscription service for streaming services aimed at couples or two friends living at the same address. The solution follows the Family Plan model, with accounts linked to a single plan, but with independent content. On the other hand, there are new features that include exclusive duo playlists and home device management. The monthly price is $ 21.90, halfway between the values ??of individual Premium ($ 16.90) and for families ($ 26.90). New users can try the streaming service for three months before starting to pay.

New to Premium Duo is Duo Mix, a playlist created by Spotify algorithms that takes into account both people's tastes and is updated regularly. Already with the Shared Playlists function, the user can send a playlist to the partner with one touch without exiting the application. There is also Duo Hub, an app screen that concentrates account, stereo, smart TV, and other connected device settings.
Other benefits are the same as regular Premium. You can choose the tracks you want to listen to, skip as many songs as you like, and download to listen offline. The subscription also removes the advertisements. Those who already use the free mode or other type of plan do not lose their music, playlists and recommendations when migrating to Premium Duo.
The billing system is the same as the family plan where a person is responsible for payment. If users wish to divide the value, the adjustment must be done outside. In addition, it is necessary to live in the same house: at the time of the first login of the second user, the application checks the location of the computer or mobile phone to make sure that the home address is the same as that of the holder. From Spotify working anywhere.
Both new users and those who already use Premium Individual can subscribe to the new plan on the official website (www.spotify/duo). Spotify Free customers will also find the option by tapping the application's Premium button. By subscribing to or migrating to Duo, the account holder can send an invite link to the person with whom they plan to share the subscription. The escort may also be new to Spotify or already have a service account.
