You can sign in and use Spotify premium on as many devices as you like. The limitation comes when you try to sync content to offline playlists, which you can only do on 3 devices, with a maximum of 3,333 tracks on each device. If your PC is always connected to the Internet then there is no need to sync content offline to that device, so then you can use your offline sync on the other three ;)

Why I Can't use more than one device at a time? How can you make it work for at least 3 devices ?

My wife can listen but if IM in a different room or garage IM screwed.

I barely got my premium upgrade please don't make me cancel before the trial ends.

You're paying for one subscription at the moment but if you buy a premium subscription for your wife too, you'll both be able to listen at the same time.

To answer your question of why, just think about it for a minute. 

 

Spotify is licensed for personal usage only, so that in itself means a) each person should have their own account b) you are not allowed to share accounts. Since you physically can't be in two places at the same time, you can only have one active stream per account, that way it stops people sharing accounts which would be a loss of licensing costs.

Hi - thanks for the info on # of devices for mobile and off line content. 

Question: I plan on getting a new mobile phone in a month or so. My current mobile is used for offline content, so it counts toward my 3.  What happens when I get the new phone and the old one is no longer in use for offline content? I want to be sure I always have my quota of 3 devices for offline content.

Thanks!!

On your laptop and PC it is already premium and you can have up to 3 devices on premium so just make another account for your laptop and PC
