One account, 2 users: can user A listen offline while user B listens online?

Hi, quick question, if I take the plunge and go Premium, could I in theory do this:

Let's say there is just one account, but can I have 2 users: can user A listening offline to a playlist while user B listens online to different music elsewhere?

HI @Deavious and welcome to the Community! 🙂
Technically, yes this is possible as I do it myself sometimes - but only if your devices are logged into the same account. There cannot be two separate users and all your playlists and musical library would be the same across devices. That's where the Family plan allows more freedom.
For ex. I have downloaded my favorite playlists to my Mac desktop for offline listening and they will still play through the Spotify desktop app (not the browser) while my iphone will still be streaming online.
Hope this helps clarify it for you!
