Just recently have I noticed that I can only play on one device at a time.
Me and my girlfriend have completely different music tastes though we usually share the same spotify account.
I was playing some music on my computer and as soon as my girlfriend who was sitting basically right next to me tried to play some other music, it paused my playback and refuses to play two at the same time.
I am VERY dissapointed by this and after this month I will be leaving spotify until this has been resloved, it should atleast allow 2-3 devices active at one time nevermind blocking more than one, especially with the very dated song selection which is rediculous at £9.99 a month.
The £9.99 a month plan also sells the plan by showing a photo of MULTIPLE devices next to each other, VERY misleading.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Set up yopur children with email adresses on Yahoo or Google. Just remember that you might need to be a bit creative on how old they are because there is a limit.
Then you send invitations from your "master" account and accepting this on each email account. Last you set up a new Spotify account with the information given, and you are all ready to go!
no, please read previous post, you have one subscription!
Spotify used to allow more than one device at a time to listen to music. That's what people are so upset about. I was never notified of any change, it just happened and it's really frustrating.
With your Premium account, you can listen in multiples devices, but not at the same time. In other words, your daughter could listen to one of your devices if you're not using the account at the time.
If you both want to listen, it'd be better for you to each have your own account, with different libraries, friends and recommendations. You can upgrade your account to Family Premium here.
Each family member has to have a separate username and password.
The account that pays then links the other family members to the plan through the Spotify website.
After that, each family member will be able to listen to music at the same time, have different playlists, library and friends.
Hope it helps. 🙂
When you say only one stream at the time, whay can't I listen on two devices the same stream? e.g. kitchen and living room and bathroom as I usually do with my wifi speakers
It would be very cool if we could listen to ONE stream on multiple devices. I'm NOT asking to be able to listen to multiple streams on multiple devices. But let me play one stream across AT LEAST TWO devices and I'd be a very happy customer. This current policy isn't really keeping up with how people want to use the service.
even though I have signed OUT of my Chromebook acct I cannot get Spotify on my Ipad. So now not only do you not allow simultaneous play but you are blocking play on more than one device.
I pay £14.99 per month for family premium as I understood that my children and I can listen to our devices at the same time as we have different music choices, is that not correct as I contacted spotify before purchasing. Until today we have not had a problem but it keeps disonnecting me (im at work) and my children must be listening at home.
I want to play spodify on more than one device at the same time! I have a internet reciver and air play speaker in the room next store. Same music all at once!
I just signed on to Spotify on Sunday. Fortunately it only cost me .99 for 3 months as part of a new subscriber program. Playing on multiple devices at the same time is an important part of our listening. It's too bad i have to leave, because I was starting to like the feel for the site. I guess I will need to start the search again. Sorry Spotify- glad it only cost me .99 for the three days I have used it.
