What are the different Spotify plans?

Spotify doesn’t only have Free and Premium plans for its users. There are several subscriptions plans:

– Spotify Individual ($9.99/month) – This is the basic Premium plan that includes ad-free listening, downloading mode, offline mode, and on-demand music playback

– Spotify Duo ($12.99/month) – Two people access two Spotify Premium subscriptions for only $12.99 per month. However, both people need to prove that they live together

– Spotify Family ($15.99/month) – A maximum of 6 people can use the same Spotify account with this subscription.

– Spotify Student ($4.99/month) – Identical to the Spotify Individual, just cheaper. It’s made for students who can’t afford a regular plan. The Student plan only lasts up to 4 years

There are plenty of options for music enthusiasts, whether they’re living alone, with a partner, or with a family.

Can I use Spotify on two phones?

Yes, you can. Spotify lets you install the app on as many devices as you want. However, you can’t use Spotify simultaneously on multiple devices.

Unless you have a Duo or Family subscription, the regular Individual Premium plan only works on a single device simultaneously.

If you try to use it on a secondary device, Spotify will automatically log off from the first device.

Many people have tried cheating Spotify with an Individual plan but couldn’t use the app on multiple devices simultaneously.

If that’s not your goal and you only want to listen to Spotify from any device in your home, then you can do so.

But use them one at a time!
