Spotify Launches Family Plan in India

Spotify has announced the availability of its Premium Family plan in India at Rs. 179 per month, giving users more ways to share audio content.

The Spotify Premium Family plan gives family members living under one roof more choices to customize music streaming and podcasts, with ad-free, on-demand music listening experience, the company said in a statement.

Spotify launched in India in February this year, priced at Rs. 119 per month. Student discounts were also available.

The Spotify Premium Family plan received a few upgrades globally earlier this year, and the plan launched in India gets the same upgrades – Parental Controls, Family Mix, and Family Hub. It was launched globally in 2014. Users can sign up on the Spotify Premium Family page, and the first three months can be tried for free.

“At a time where parents are trying to reduce screen time for both themselves and their family, we’re creating more ways for families to bond over music together, while still celebrating individual tastes and giving parents more control if they want it.” said Alex Norström, Chief Premium Business Officer, Spotify.

“Spotify’s Premium Family plan has been loved across markets, and we know that our users in India wanted it when we launched in February. Family time and recreation are a core part of our culture, and we want users to discover new music and podcasts through their family, without compromising on their personal taste and app experience. We are thrilled to bring this subscription tier to the country,” said Amarjit Batra, Managing Director, India, Spotify.
