Spotify constantly tries to take shortcuts in the way they implement things - they probably just tacked this onto their current billing system and thought no one would notice. They have finite resources sure, but they don't take the time to do things right. Also see Your Music, with the ridiculous 10k track limit, of which it doesn't even notify you when you hit it.
i tweeted as i said and of course they reply because they hate bad tweets.. so anyone with this issue please tweet about it @spotify and @spotifycares and let them know how ridiculous this process is. they asked to direct message and said that to add another member to spotify family you need to cancel your subscription and subscribe again with the new members added! what a fcukin joke! they said it was a development issue and would let the developers know..
eh no.. this is to do with your processes and account setup.. there is nothing worse than someone doing something half arsed and completely fcuking it up and that is what they've done.. such a pity.. i'm very tempted to cancel and go back to last fm and give google play music a try..
This is absolutely a bug. I can't think of any reason I shouldn't see Me + 3 invite buttons next to it. If there is a legit reason for this, I'd actually love to hear why this is so difficult that I have to unsubscribe fully from MY paid account, wait for your system to process me, then resubscribe just to be able to invite another family member. I really want the insight.
I mean, do you really think that's the best user experience for us? Is it really necessary or just bad implementation? I'm a developer by profession and this is a nonsensical workaround, not a solution. Tell your developers to get to work 😉
Is it just me or does this whole process seem clunky. I would think that Spotify would want to make it easy to add extra subscibers to the service. Right now I'm trying to go from a 1+1 account to a 1+2. It shouldn't be this difficult.
Can you please remove this comment. It is not helpful and only clutters the post that is attempting to chronicle a serious issue with the Spotify Family Plan. This problem occurs after members have located the Family Plan section so your first link isn't relevant. The second link is overly obvious and add no value. If anything your post just irritates people who are already irritated with the service. Thank you in advance.
