[Subscription] Restructure Premium Family Plan

Re:  Family Plan.  With the idea that Spotify needs to increase profits, please consider this:  I would happily pay an additional $5 per month to keep my family connected to Premium Service.  As it stands, three of my children, who are barely making ends meet, will be removed from my account and are unlikely to subscribe on their own.  While we continue to use and love Spotify, I will begin to research other options.  Thank you for your consideration.

I understand the current terms and conditions of the Spotify Family Plan, as well as the rationale behind them. However, I think it would be beneficial to find a way for families to include their immediate family members who may not live at the same residence. Under its current writing, , a college student could use a family plan for their unrelated roommates who live at the same dorm/apartment/house, but a parent would not be able to use it for their children (actual family) who may no longer live at home. Similarly, a family member may want to provide their family plan information to a another family member who is otherwise unable to afford their own account, but does not live at the same residence. Although they are actual family, they don't meet the criteria to share in the family plan. I believe additional or alternate criteria should be laid out to include family members regardless of their address (such as last name confirmation, primary owner confirming the family relationship, or being required at application to detail the relationship to the primary owner such as a spouse, fiance, sibling, or parent, etc.). In the same way a cell phone plan can be shared among family members across the country, I believe it would be beneficial to allow the family plan to be shared in a similar manner. This may mean lowering the total count included in the family plan as to avoid loss of revenue, however I think the reaction would be well received even with the lowered allowed headcount.
