Good news for couples and rooms that do not hate – Spotify is testing a new subscription plan called the Premium Duo for two-person households. It will cost € 12.49 a month, or whatever the equivalent of local markets, and offers some new features to the playlist along with it.
At the moment, Premium Duo is only available in five markets: Colombia, Chile, Denmark, Ireland and Poland, Spotify told Gizmodo in an email. (So the euro price.) Like the 15-dollar family subscription plan per month and allowing up to six users, both users have to live at the same address to reap the benefits of discounts. People who already have a premium subscription can change their plans with their account settings. Spotify declined to confirm when or whether there are plans to expand the Premium Duo for the US, but services are usually used to test new features in the pilot markets.
One of the new features that Spotify tests with Premium Duo is a shared playlist generated by AI called Duo Mix. It's basically similar to Spotify's Discovery Weekly playlist, where you can get a mix for the two subscribers, which supposedly should suit your tastes. You can change your mood either "cool" or "optimistic" depending on the rate you want, and each track will have small icon icons to show who is responsible for that boost in the mix.
There is also an option for shared playlists that allows you to bombard your partner by sharing your entire library. Both subscribers will be able to manage their home settings and account data from a single page called Duo Hub, Spotify says.
The rebate itself is not very much, especially when you think that € 12.49 is about $ 14 – or roughly the same amount as the Family Subscription Plan – and the Individual Premium Account is $ 10. This means that a few dollars are gathered over time, especially now that everyone and their mother want to sign up for another streaming subscription.
