Spotify is testing a new subscription called Premium Duo that offers you two Premium subscriptions for the discounted price of € 12.49 per month. The new plan, which was first seen by Redditor u / Hasztagg and confirmed to The Verge by Spotify, also comes with a new playlist called Duo Mix, which is automatically generated based on your two habits listening.
Spotify Premium subscriptions usually cost € 9.99 per subscriber. Premium Duo subscriptions, therefore, represent a decent saving for couples and suitable roommates. Just like the Family Subscription, Premium Duo subscribers must live at the same address, but what is different now is that Spotify will ask you to provide this address as part of the Duo registration process.
Spotify's 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 broadcast service. In the past, Spotify has sent emails requesting that family members confirm their addresses in an apparent attempt to kill friends who share plans despite not living together as a family.
Once both are registered, they will gain access to Duo Mix, a new self-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. While both are listening to music, the plan is updated with the music you think you will both enjoy. There are also "Chill" and "Upbeat" options for the playlist in the mobile application to switch between songs from different tempos.
If you prefer to listen to playlists that 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 the Premium Duo in five markets (Colombia, Chile, Denmark, Ireland and Poland) and did not confirm when or if it expects the plan to be extended more widely in the future.
