Premium Duo Not Working

qnfrs

I just changed my subscription from Premium to Premium Duo. I sent my partner who switched from Premium to Premium Duo as well the invitation link and it keeps giving us the error message in the picture attached below.

 

I have followed the instructions and I even used their link, however, we keep getting the same error message. We have been trying since yesterday lol.

 

Please advise!

Hey folks, 

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community 🙂

 

If you or any of your family members are having issues joining a Premium Duo plan, we'd recommend the following:

  • Make sure that both accounts are located in the same country.
  • Make sure to be on the free service or regular Premium before attempting to join a plan. If the user you're trying to invite is a Duo or Family plan owner, they will have issues joining another plan.
  • Try joining from an incognito window or a different device.

If none of these work, you can reach out to our Support team here and they'll be happy to assist further by checking the affected account to see what might be happening. 

 

Don't hesitate to let us know if anything else comes up. 

 

Cheers.

Hey @qnfrs, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

If you're the plan manager and you're using the same device to sign up for Duo to invite someone, make sure you've logged out of your account page first.

 

The invite link may also have been expired. If you're the plan manager send a new invite link by logging into your Duo page at www.spotify.com/account/duo.

 

If it's still not working, try the same steps above using a different browser or private window.

 

Let me know how this goes!

Hi Billy,

 

Thanks for the quick response! I've tried re-sending the link and trying it in a private/incognito browser. Still, no luck.

Hey @qnfrs

 

Are you getting an error message when you send an invite, or is the person trying to accept the invite getting an error message? If so, please send me a screenshot of the error message. Make sure to hide sensitive info when posting to the Community.

 

Also, keep in mind that this plan will only work if both people reside at the same physical address.

 

Let me know how this goes!

Hi Billy,

 

Yes, we do reside at the same address. The error message comes up when my partner is trying to accept the invitation link. I've attached the screenshot below!

 

We have tried to use the location detector as well as manually entering our address and the same error message comes up.

Hey @qnfrs

If the option is available, could you ask the person accepting the invite to try on another device? If this doesn't occur on a different device, please make sure that the original device is up to speed with any software updates available.

 

Keep me posted.

Hey Billy,

 

We re-installed Spotify to ensure it's updated and still no luck!

Billy-J

Hey @qnfrs,

 

Could you try sending another invite using a different device, if available? This is a great step to see if this is device-related.

 

Also, you mentioned in the first message:


I sent my partner who switched from Premium to Premium Duo as well




Could you clarify what you mean exactly? Also, what is the subscription status of your partner's Spotify account? 

 

Keep me posted!

Hi 

I am having the exact same problem. My partner invited me and when I click the link and enter the address and submit it says an error has occurred and to try again later.

However I was the orginal one to subscribe to Duo but cancelled within the same day due to not having access to my email until now. Has this got something to do with it? 

Pauline

Billy-J

Hey @paulinedeasy-ie, and @qnfrs,

 

Sorry to hear about this. Please check the status of the subscription on your account and the person who is trying to join would need to either:

or 

Then they should be able to accept the Duo invitations without any issues.

 

I hope this helps.

Now I have the same problem. Two different devices and Spotify doesn't allow to accept invitation.

 

The text or error is exactly the same as in previous posts.

When are you going to have this solved?! It has been three weeks since last post here and the problem is still there! Where do I request a refund?
