Leaving a Family plan and going Premium


Leaving a Family plan and going Premium


Hey Everyone!

My question is about leaving a Premium Family plan.

I am currently a member of a Family group, but I would like to leave it, and make my profile simply Premium (individually).

However I am not the administrator of the Family, and I can't contact the administrator at the moment to unlink my profile.

I have looked it up at the settings, and if I simply change my plan to Free. Will that make me leave the family? Will my place there open up?

And after i go Free, will I be able to just easily go back to (simple) Premium after that?

And during this process will I lose my playlists, liked songs etc.?

Hi @Tachinka,


Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community!


Yes, you can leave a Premium Family plan by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your account page
  2. Under Your plan, click CHANGE PLAN.
  3. Select CANCEL PREMIUM under Spotify Free.

When you leave the Premium Family plan, your subscription will revert to the free plan, and you can then subscribe to your own Premium Individual plan here.


No worries, changing subscription plans won’t cause you to lose your playlists or saved music.


Yes, the plan manager will be able to invite another member to their Premium Family plan once you’ve left the plan, as long as the invited member hasn’t switched between Premium Family or Premium Duo plans within the past 12 months (Spotify users can switch between different Premium Family or Premium Duo plans, but only once in 12 months).


Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!
