It’s unavoidable that people who are living together will eventually share most of the things in their daily life, including what they listen to. She loves Amy Winehouse while you are so into Prince, even these two ever performed together. Who says you can’t appreciate who she loves or she can’t get stuck in what you enjoy? Spotify, the music streaming platform that most of your friends listen to, learns the idea from that scenario and enter a new market.

Recently Spotify launched its new subscription plan for couples—the Premium Duo. This feature enables two people to share Premium under one subscription plan. Subscribers can be couples, flatmates, siblings or any combination of two.

As always, Spotify provides new features for this subscription and this passage will help you explore the Spotify Duo plan. Let’s see if the new plan is right for you.

How to Subscribe Spotify Duo?

To subscribe to Spotify Duo, users can:

1. Sign up or log in on Spotify

2. Invite someone you want to share Premium Duo with by emails or other sharing methods.

3. When the invitation is accepted, you two have to confirm the address. And after that, you’re both Duo subscribers.

Price-wise, the Premium Duo plan costs 12.99$ per month for a couple under one roof. This is more affordable compared to the Premium plan which costs 9.99$ for each account. And if you already are a premium user, you can directly upgrade to the Duo plan. But unfortunately, if you’re under the Family plan, Spotify doesn’t offer service to change your subscription.

How Spotify Duo Works?

This section will tell you what you can get after subscribing to Spotify Duo plan and how the plan works to verify your accessibility.

Premium Features

If you already have an account, you still can keep your library, playlists and recommendations after subscribing to Duo plan. And besides, you’ll be given all the features of a normal Premium plan, including:

• No ad interruptions.

• Unlimited skips.

• Offline listening.

• Higher streaming quality

Duo Mix

Spotify also provides exclusive Duo Mix playlist for subscribers. Users have to tap the three dots in mobile the app to join, and then music will show up in the Duo Mix playlist.

Users can choose between Chill mode which contains songs for easy listening or Upbeat mode with music of faster tempo. When you tap the tag again, the playlist will return to standard mix.

Songs in Duo Mix are automatically generated based on the listening habits and preferences from both accounts, so the more they listen, the more there’ll be shown in the Duo Mix playlist. Since the Duo Mix playlist frequently refreshes, users are not allowed to listen to songs in the playlist off-line.

Address Verification

To become Spotify Duo members, both subscribers have to enter the same address. And upon the activation of the Premium Duo subscription, people will be asked to verify their home address.

How does Spotify Duo verify address?

Spotify used to check the address by using GPS, but they have ditched the idea as customers don’t want their privacy to be exposed to the company.

But Spotify doesn’t give up on checking the address. They may from time to time ask the Premium Duo subscribers to re-verify their location. Once they found Duo users are not eligible for the criteria, they can suspend the service for these customers.
