Spotify made it much more affordable to have your whole family on a Spotify Premium plan last month, but it didn't make the process of adding family members any easier. Late last month, Spotify changed the pricing for its family plans to match those of Apple Music and Google Play Music. This puts Spotify's family plan pricing in line with many other popular music streaming services available. Sadly, Spotify didn't make upgrading your account from Premium to Family any more intuitive, and user management could use some work.
Nonetheless, here is how to upgrade your Spotify account and share your Premium access with your family. Upgrading your Spotify account to Family isn't a difficult process, but it's not immediately apparent where you need to go to make the change. Even worse, you can't make any of these changes from within the mobile or desktop Spotify apps.
It all has to be done in a Web browser. If you're an existing Spotify Premium or a free user, the process for upgrading to Spotify Family is the same.
Managing users on your Spotify Family account also needs to be done from within a browser. To add or remove users from your account, go to spotify. If you have an available slot, you can invite someone using their email address or by sending them a direct link. Unfortunately, there is no way to simply revoke someone's access to your Spotify Family account. Instead, you will need to invite someone new or generate a new invitation link. This will kick the selected user off your account and revoke their access to Spotify Premium.
If you're on the receiving end of an invitation to Spotify Premium, you will either receive a link directly from the person inviting your or an email from Spotify notifying you that you've been invited. Click the link to get started. Or, if you've been invited via email, click the button in the email that says Accept Invitation.
Sign into your account or create one and click Redeem. When you download and log into the Spotify application to your phone, tablet or computer, you can enjoy the full benefits of Spotify Premium.
