Spotify accounts are set up for personal use only. This means we can't offer any kind of shared account.
The majority of revenue we earn from subscriptions, and the income generated by ads, is paid straight to the music rights holders. They represent the artists and composers. Allowing the use of the account by more than one person wouldn't be totally fair, as many people would listen to music for the cost of a single subscription.

Sam, This reply is unacceptable. You should have said, "We are working on a way to allow gifting of Spotify accounts."
Keep being inovative and proactive. Doing this can only help Spotifiy.
This is wy I am uninstalling spotify and delating my account. We are four persons in this family and with four mobile devices. It's not possible to have a monthly fee of about €40. For that you get alot of music on itunes. Which is possible to share in the family.
So, by,by Spotify....
I will add my vote for a family plan. I expect to pay for each family member but it seems reasonable that there be a discount for additional people.
If Beats Music has a 'Family type' plan where I can play on more than one device at a time (need 2) AND have the same Playlists shared so we don't have to try and duplicate Playlists (since we listen to mostly the same music) then I'll be giving it a try.
Spotify, I love your selection and have been a longtime subscriber ... but you need to keep up with the times.
If you can't offer me a shared subscription for say $15 or so a month then I'll be switching. Very disappointed not to see ANYTHING on the forums addressing this issue. Listen to your subscribers before you lose them.
Yep, Spotify finally added the family premium subscription. Problem Solved. :) The original post was created a few years ago. Glad to see that Spotify is keeping pace with their competitors.
