Agreed that it is amazing that this is not fixed yet. I setup an account for my kids to share but they had conflicts as they like to listen to different music at the same time. I would add two users but to cancel and restart the account is too much of a hassle. As a result, Spotify is out on $10 per month or the revenue of a new subscriber. I also will be checking out the Apple version.
This is totally hopeless...i allready have my wife in my family plan, and now want to add one of my kids....Spotify now tells me to cancel my premium plan, and then wait for their obvious crapy systems to sync, and subscribe to premium again, and then add the 2 additional family members???...How about me telling them to go with apple music and me going to Groove?.....
ok...so to add another member to my family plan, I need to cancel my entire premium plan, wait for it to revert to free, then sign back up for premium family with 2 family members. My question is "do I and my existing family member lose all of our saved playlists and things when I cancel and resubcribe?" Please confirm one way or another.
Really intuitive right? How many developers does Spotify have working for them? And this still is an issue?!?!?!
Anyway to answer your question. Your crew will keep their premium plan until the end of the period. I JUST had to do this again so I could add my wife to my family plan. I cancelled, I then had a week remaining until my plan expired. Everyone still had the premium features. Then on my plan expiration date I signed up again for a new family plan.
It's almost like we're back in 1995 and this whole "online billing" thing is still getting figured out. Don't forget your AOL CD.
Wasn't a problem for me. One thing I didn't notice was whether it affected any playlists with locally saved files as I believe non-premium membership doesn't allow that functionality. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
This problem is still not fixed. I have 2 of my sons signed up in my family account. I have a third son who wants to join. But I cannot find the invite button either. I am not prepared to have three of us mess around with accounts to achieve invite by workaround.
How about Spotify reduce my third son's account cost to family rate while they sort this mess out.
This is utterly ridiculous and makes sense for no-one. I assume the issue if that if you pay on the 1st and add a 3rd user on the 5th then either you have to give a free 25 days or do a second pament for the month. Id personally suggest the former and keep an eye for people gaming it alternatively do a pro rated payment added to the next month or separate or add a free account until the next payment date.
