I agree with how the representatives were talking, and with the point for 13$ a month in the U.S. It should be allowed to steam multiple devices. But, the way they talk on this thread they want to lose business so I am gonna try Amazon prime see how it is.
Betreff: Why can't we play on more than one device?
Personally I think the Spotify approach is a bad approach.
In my country, Switzerland, the Radio/TV fees are per household and not individuals.
I often move between rooms and switch between devices I'm listening to, this always interrupts and stops the other device.
Even switching between my tablett or phone and the TV whan I have to do in the living room leads to interruptions.
Not all family members want a Spotify account per se. Our sons share the household a few days a year.
If Spotify would provide a familly or household account with free use on up to 5 devices (just to give a number) I would be willing to pay more. On the other hand, if I find another service of equal quality that service I would certainly give it a try.
I used to have Rdio before they went out of business. I was able to use it on as many devices as I wanted and share it with my brother. Much better service than spotify, but also the reason it went out of business.
Easy download your playlists and go to settings and select go offline you will only be able to play songs you downloaded. And your GF can do the same it will show you within how many days you have to go online to verify you are still paying your subscription.
I got here because I have the same issue and this solved it.
What happens is that even your songs are offline you are still establishing connection with Spotify servers.
It worked for me but it will be a good chance for Spotify to create basic, premium or family accounts like Netflix or Itunes Store you pay for a song or album.and it can be downloaded within your family. I understand is different licensing but i I pay extra $20 MXN in my Netflix account and I get 2 devices simultaneously if I want only one I'll pay $79.00 MXN .
Glad I'm not paying for this with me having a years offer. Spotify good to certain point but defo a lot better apps to use than Spotify. Reading through this thread I find terrible! The attitude on the responses is disgraceful and because of that also I have definitely made my mind up. Why would you pay for a service when you have arrogant tossers like yourselves replying the way you are!!
