Duo with a significant other I don't live with?

Duo with a significant other I don't live with?

I'd like to introduce my partner to spotify but duo is for those who have moved in together only. Is there any reason for this? i.e. Are there any other options for having multiple accounts for a family that aren't under one roof?

 

If not, how do I gift her a years sub or something?

Hey @silksf,


Thanks for coming to the Community.

 

While I can't share any exact reasons for this policy, it's mainly to prevent abuse.

 

Right now, there are unfortunately no plans like Duo/Family for people who don't live at the same address. They would have to subscribe to Premium individually.

 

Depending on the country/region you're in, you might be able to purchase a Gift Card for the person in a store near you or online (e.g. PayPal, Amazon).

 

Hope this helps 🙂

The abuse being... more people pay £5 extra for duo to share with their friends/partners rather than not doing that? 

 

I didn't want to buy a physical card, rather give her a birthday present of a playlist which included a subscription I'd paid for (which would be easy with duo). What an honestly shocking revelation that this isn't possible. Can you say lost revenue potential?

Hey @silksf,

 

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

One thing you could try is creating a collaborative playlist. You can fill it with songs and then add your partner as a collaborator.
If you wish to get her a subscription as well, this will have to be an Individual subscription though. 
As @Maxim has stated, the Duo and Family plans require you to live under the same roof for the verification process to work 🙂

Hope  this helps!
