Spotify is testing a new subscription called Premium Duo that gives you two Premium subscriptions for the discounted price of ? 12.49 a month. The new plan, which was first spotted by Redditor u / Hasztagg and confirmed , also comes with a new playlist called Duo Mix , which is automatically generated based on your two listening habits.
Premium subscriptions typically cost ? 9.99 per subscriber. Premium Duo subscriptions, therefore, represent a decent saving for couples and suitable roommates. Like the Family subscription, Premium Duo subscribers must live at the same address, but what's different now is that Spotify will ask you to provide this address as part of the Duo sign-up process.
The existing family subscription allows up to six people to share the same plan for ? 14.99 ($ ??14.99) per month. However, Spotify Family has become a source of frustration for the streaming service. In the past, Spotify has sent emails requesting that family subscribers confirm their addresses in an apparent attempt to crack down on friends sharing plans despite not living together as a family.
Once you are both registered, you get access to Duo Mix , a new auto-generated playlist similar to Spotify's Discover Weekly or Daily Mix playlists. You get a playlist between you, and this is automatically created and shared when you set up the account. As you both listen to music, the plan is updated with the music you think you'll both enjoy. There are also "Chill" and "Upbeat" options for the playlist in the mobile app to switch between songs of different tempos.
If you prefer to listen to playlists you have created yourself, then the plan also includes a shared playlist feature. This allows you to share all your playlists with your Duo partner with a single click.
Spotify is currently testing Duo Premium in five markets (Colombia, Chile, Denmark, Ireland and Poland) and did not confirm when or if it expects the plan to be rolled out more widely in the future.
