I recently upgraded to Premium so I could share Spotify with my mom. But if I'm listening to mine, she can't listen to hers, and vice versa. She was at work listening to her playlist, and I was at home searching songs, but I could HEAR what SHE was listerning to. Can't they be separate like Netflix? Isn't there a way for her to listen to her stuff and me to listen to my stuff simultaneously without it crossing over like that? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As has been noted, the single device per user policy makes Spotify mostly useless with a shared device such as Google Home, Alexa or Android TV. You can't expect different users to login to the device each time they want to play music. If we are listening to music on Android TV and the account holder leaves, it's not conveniont for someone else to have to login to listen to music. Having a remotely complex password makes that too frustrating to deal with. If I have a family plan, I should be able to play on at least 2 devices. Having my personal song preferences isn't as important as this basic functionality.
It's embarrassing that I pay for a family account and because I have too many children my wife can't actively do chores in another room and listen to my playlist with me. Cheap ass Spotify can't figure out how to share music over a network so we have to suffer. Considering a cheaper option at this point.
Please stop suggesting Amazon Household. I have a Spotify Premium plan. Within that, my daughter has her account, my son has his account. The each have an Amazon Echo in their room. When my son or daughter request a song on their respective devices, I don't want it interrupting my podcast when I'm at work, or out on a walk. Why is this so complicated?
So I have a family premium account (this includes 2 kids accounts) and we are unable to play simultaneously either. When we play music it comes from my Spotify account still and I’ve logged out reloaded my Spotify to see if this would fix the problem but it hasn’t. Only one person can play music at a time. We have 2 google mini nests and 3 google wifi nests in our house. Any advice would be very appreciated. Regards
Hi, I'm having the same issue here: premium family plan, 2 account members, each having its own account logged in to, using separate phones and playlists, each time one of us play's spotify - other member music stops. Logged in/out each member/account. Deleted apps and reloaded them, latest update is on, made restart to each phone (iphone 12). Still no help and can't listen separately. Monthly payments but not possible to use service correctly!!! Please advise how to solve the issue ASAP. Thanks.
Thanks for the post.
We'd recommend you both Log out Everywhere, as described here. After that log in on each phone with the seperate account (seperate email address).
Let us know if that helps.
This is funny as I’ve been trying to resolve this for some time now and NO ONE can come up with a solution……
I am currently able to use the one Spotify account on multiple devices at the same time! Yes music playing all at the same time and no not using Offline Mode! How is this possible and how can I resolve the issue???
Funny funny funny….. I have one account and can play music all at the same time on multiple devices! No one will help resolve. I do not want family premium, I want to be able to see what my partner is playing and when he is playing music. I don’t want to listen to it. I want it to say the app is being used like it used to!!
