2 different phones/1 account

I am very new to spotify...  Just found it a few days ago and my "free" session of streaming just ended.  Is there a way to have the premium account on 2 different mobile devices?  (say my phone and my husband's phone)

 

Thanks in advance :womanvery-happy:

You can only listen to music from one device at a time. So it's possible, but you won't be listening to it while the other does.

oh okay...  so you can't listen to both even if they would both be in offline mode?

Yes, possible, but this is prohibited in ToS.

 

Also keep in mind, you can't share your account information for example with your wife. This is prohibited in ToS too.

 

There is a "legal" way: two accounts. This is maybe a big piece of money, but think it as 2CD pack or something.

It's possible as I say. But try if you like. All you need is a smartphone etc. max 3 devices and enable Offline mode. Then create playlist to you and wife. Max 3,333 tracks. You can listen Online in only one device. But keep in mind, those things are prohibited in ToS. If you want to try, remember that I am not responsible for this.

And if you want to support the music industry, you should buy to your wife another account. Because otherwise the artists are paid from your account when two people listening. And your account is for personal use only. My opinion is this: if you or your wife really care about music, then there is a need for own Premium account.

So if you like music you listen, support it.

One should be able to use it for 'family use'. Do you buy a CD each of the same album in your family?

Can you play the same CD in 2 different locations at the same time?  ;)
