Spotify currently costs €9.99 per subscriber or €14.99 for the family plan of up to six members. However, the music streaming service is reportedly trialing a new subscription plan that offers premium access to two users for €12.49 a month.
The Premium Duo plan is currently being tested in Colombia, Chile, Denmark, Ireland, and Poland, according to The Verge. For many users, like couples who haven't subscribed to Spotify's family plan, the new offering might translate to significant savings, although the family subscription is still a better deal.
Upon signing up for Premium Duo, users will have to provide and verify their home address. This is part of Spotify's effort to prevent people who are distant from one another from sharing the same premium account for a discounted price.
The new plan features a Duo Mix playlist which analyzes your listening habits in order to automatically generate a catalog of songs. The playlist will be shared by both users of the Premium Duo account. Otherwise, you can still listen to music of your own choosing with a Shared Playlists feature.
Availability of the trial plan is limited for now and there's no word on whether it will come to other countries.
