Spotify Family

October 2014

I know quite a few people who share a single premium Spotify account with their partner/kids/dogs/cats so they don’t have to spend the $10/€10 a month extra per account. The drawback is that only one user/pet can use the account at the time; so if you’re blasting Queen and Azrael wants to listen to some Snoop Lion, you’re out of luck and will get cut off.

Spotify has come up with a solution for this, called Family, and it’s pretty great.

Instead of paying the full price for each user, Family comes with a discount for each extra user you connect. This means that instead of having to cough up $50 for five users, you’ll be charged only $35,99.

  • Spotify Family 2: $17.99
  • Spotify Family 3: $23.99
  • Spotify Family 4: $29.99
  • Spotify Family 5: $35.99

The even better part is that each user will have their own account, with their own preferences and favorites. A wonderful reason to stop the game of musical chairs and get everyone an account of their own.

These are the biggest music streaming services worldwide

October 2014

YourEDM posted about a study Billboard published last week, in which they ranked music services by their paid subscribers.

Spotify came out on top, with over ten million subscribers worldwide.

Spotify, of course, was #1. But what about the other seven? The only other ones I recognize on the list are Rhapsody, Sony Radio Unlimited, and Google Play All Access. The others seem to be much more prevalent and well-established in other parts of the world such as Mexico, Europe and South America.

While developing Denied I had no doubt in my mind that Spotify should be the first service it supports, but the localized popularity of music streaming services makes it tougher than you might expect to determine which service to add the list.
