Spotify’s Family Premium gets better family oriented features

Spotify adding parental controls to Family plan

Family members living under one roof, are able to leverage everything Spotify Premium, that's unlimited skips, ad-free and as much music and podcasts as you can handle.

Spotify is awesome and chances are if you love it, you've also sold your family (and friends) on it. 5 years ago Spotify launched Family plans and to match with that anniversary, they're launching a Premium Family plan.

Spotify has announced plans to improve its Premium Family music streaming subscription this fall with the addition of new features and "long-requested" parental controls.

The family playlist feature personally sounds a bit cheesy as the whole point of having your own account and unique playlists is to populate them with tracks you enjoy.

Google, Facebook, Amazon decry French digital tax as 'discriminatory'
The tax, dubbed the GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon) in the U.S. , is retroactive and applies from January 1, 2019. He tweeted last month: 'France just put a digital tax on our great American technology companies.

Spotify has revealed a slate of updates to its Premium Family plan, including upgraded Parental Controls, a personalized playlist and a new Family Hub to manage account settings. Adding new features to an existing plan could help to justify the price hike.

The Premium Family plan makes a lot of sense when you consider a standard Premium account costs $9.99 for one person and Family is $14.99 for up to six people who reside at the same address.

Spotify is improving its Premium for Family subscription to take account more for family dynamics. Even with more than 108 million subscribers, the company is still losing money so generating more revenue is a necessity.

The upgrade is now available in Ireland and will roll out in all markets that offer the Premium Family plan at an unspecified date in this fall.
