Not to mention that with the kids using the adult account, Spotify's suggestions, recommendations, year in review, etc is now horribly skewed/out of whack. My discover weekly now consists almost entirely of things my 8 year old would listen to. Me, not so much. 

 

I have no problem making the kids their own Spotify accounts on the family plan but in this case, Google requires EACH Home/mini user to have their OWN device (phone/tablet) in order to make profiles. So even with individual Spotify accounts, they can't use them on the home/mini without their own device to link the two.

This is exactly why I'm here. I walked into my 7 year old's room to hear Eminem's Godzilla (unfiltered) because I switched to YouTube Music from GPM (same reason, trying to get ahead of the involuntary switch). Decided it was time to give Spotify a try... guess I'll just take advantage of the trial period and go crawling right back to Google. It's a shame because I like the Spotify app a lot more. It's probably tough to hear because it's not an easily solved issue (except to let more cheaters in the door) but I have 3 kids under 10 and I'm not creating each one of them Spotify account, and HOPING Voice Match actually figures out who they are and shutting off my music.

I have exactly the same issue. I found out on google support that each family member needs to have a google account AND their own device (phone or tablet) AND a Spotify account !!! wth ! My daughter is 5 ! I’ll not buy her a phone nor create a google account for her ! 
I tried to create another account (via a fake email address with my name) and invite it to my premium family account, but it didn’t work, saying that it seems that I’m not at the same address (than myself 😂). I’ve asked the question as well on another topic here because But nobody really answered and I’m furious to see how it is difficult to get help and impossible to contact anyone ! At least when I was using Apple Music I could talk to someone to help me not just posting on a forum praying that someone would answer me !
