[All Platforms] Single account, multiple sessions

Hi,
Will Spotify ever make it possible to have 1 account and being able to play different songs?
The only option now is to use "Spotify Connect"  that restart the song where you left off last time you played.

Now as we are getting more and more IOT devices like Alexa, Google Home, Sonos etc etc.. I think it is about time that Spotify makes it possible to create a subscription-plan for us that want to e.g. (in my case) having music on for my kid sleeping and being able to listen to my own music without having to interrupt/disconnect my kid's session or my wife using it in our car.
I really thought and hoped that "Family membership" solved this, but having different account for each session, with different playlists really doesn't make sense and much more complicated than what it need to be.

Hopefully Spotify will consider this seriously, and make it possible for us to use the same account simultaneously on other devices.

Spotify, you will have full control of the devices anyway (counting unique device ID/IP addresses/geo location etc), so why is it such a big deal? Can't you just implement it if we pay for it?

 

Best regards

Mads

I couldn't believe it when I signed up for a family account and found out that in a smart home with multiple Amazon echos and sonos you can't play different streams on spotify simultaneously.
Does spotify want all users of a multiroom speaker configuration to switch to Amazon?
Why has spotify ignored such requests from customers for years ?
I had to switch back to Amazon music so that everyone in our family can listen to the music they want at the same time.
Spotify please wake up!😴
