Like Spotify Duo, Premium Family provides each member with their own individual Spotify account, which means that each user sharing the subscription has their own saved music, podcasts, playlists, and recommendations.

Spotify announced a new Premium Duo plan on Wednesday that lets two people have their own accounts under the same plan for $12.99/month.

Alex Norström, who is Spotify's "Chief Freemium Business Officer" said in a statement that the streaming giant was proud to launch Spotify Premium Duo. Spotify's family plan which includes up to six accounts under one roof is now $14.99 per month.

Spotify has been making improvements for its users recently. Meanwhile, 63 percent say music helps build even more memories. If you haven't used Spotify Premium in the past, you'll get a free month of Spotify Premium Duo. This includes access to ad-free, on-demand listening and a catalog of more than 50 million tracks, as well as access to over 1 million podcast titles. The two users must reside at the same address to be eligible, the firm notes.

In the blog post , the title was "Our focus on helpful devices" which pretty much tells us what they envision to do with North. Rick Osterloh, who is in charge of Google's hardware division, talked about ambient computing quite a bit as well.

But there is one unique perk to Duo: Subscribers can access an exclusive Duo Mix playlist that is regularly updated to help them discover audio they both love.

The Duo plan also gets Duo Mix, a playlist curated from the things that the two accounts like so you can sample each other's musical tastes.

The list of markets where real-time lyrics will be available on Spotify includes Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Uruguay, and Vietnam. The firm first started testing the service past year.
