Have to agree with someGuy22. For Spotify to suggest that the workable solution is for each family member; including minors, to have both a Spotify and amazon account is ridiculous. This product is not "Premium for Family". This product is "Premium for Family ... Oh, expect for families with young children 'cause screw you guys!".

It would be helpful if you put up a link on how to do this, we have two amazon accounts and a family Spotify account, still searching for what I need to do

Thanks for the link, I've got it setup so my wife can play her spotify account (family membership) on the alexa in the kitchen whilst I play using my account on a different alexa.

However, she has to keep swapping to her account manually by saying 'Alexa, swap accounts'. The alexa recognises her voice but apparently it's not possible to automatically swap accounts based on voice.

Also, when she is using her account, none of the lights etc can be controlled. So she would have to switch back to my account, the music would probably stop, turn on the light, switch back to her account and then carry on with music.

This is an awful implementation, really disappointed. I like Spotify but I'm seriously thinking of moving to the Apple music where people are saying you don't have these problems 😞 What can be done to improve this?
