At the time of launch, Spotify was offering its music streaming free for one month in India. Now, the company is offering three months of trial period to those who opt for its Premium Family Plan.
So what all features does Spotify’s Premium Family Plan offer? Apart from enjoying six individual accounts under one plan, subscribers will get an exclusive access to a personalised Family Mix playlist that will contain songs liked by all the family members. This list will be customised regularly based on the shared listening history of the family members.

Additionally, all the family members included in the Premium Family Plan get their individual Premium plan without being billed separately. They also get access to ad-free music offline and the ability to listen to their favourite tracks on any device.
