If you and a friend or partner are looking to reduce your monthly Spotify cost, you can subscribe to the platform’s new Premium Duo plan.
Premium Duo plans cost $12.99 CAD per month. Generally, Premium subscribers need to pay $10 each per month, so between two people, this would save you $7 per month or $84 a year.
There are some perks to having a Premium Duo subscription as well. First up, if you’ve never tried Spotify Premium before, you’ll get a month free when you sign up. Beyond that, Spotify also gives users a personalized playlist called ‘Duo Mix’ that combines both parties’ music to make a playlist that the subscription service thinks both people will enjoy.
It’s also worth noting that both people get their own account. This new plan works just like a smaller family plan, with the only shared aspect being the Duo Mix playlist. If you and the person you’re splitting with are already regular Spotify subscribers, you can change to a Duo plan without losing your existing music libraries as well.
