Spotify’s Family Plan will soon work better for actual families

Spotify is adding new features to its Family Plan subscriptions to give parents more control over their children's listening habits. As of today in Ireland, and "soon" in the other countries where the plan is offered, parents will be able to establish the Explicit Content Filter in their children's accounts, preventing them from playing anything that Spotify marks as explicit. The ability to change the filter will be password protected, which means that only parents will have control over the settings.

First announced in 2014, the Spotify Family Plan is a way for up to six people to share a monthly subscription with a $ 14.99 discount. Given that an individual Spotify Premium subscription costs $ 9.99, it can result in a fairly massive price reduction. However, out of a vague requirement that all members live in the same place, the plan has not previously had any features designed for families.

Parental controls will be available to any user who has the Family Plan master account, and sub-accounts cannot activate and deactivate them without a password. The filter can be controlled from the Family Hub, which is where you can also add and remove family members, or update your family address.

Along with the new parental controls, Spotify is also adding a new Family Mix, which will offer a personalized playlist generated from the listening habits of the accounts in the shared subscription. Spotify says that it can "control who is in each session" to customize the playlist, suggesting that it can prevent the playlist from being dominated by Michael Bublé's obsession with a family member. It looks like a feature similar to the Duo Mix that Spotify presented with its Premium Duo subscription earlier this year. However, if your family's listening habits are similar to mine, then you could end up with a shared playlist that changes chaotically between easy music and heavy metal. At least you can try something new, right?
