What is Spotify Duo and How Does it Work? Everything about the Duo Plan

What is Spotify Duo?

Spotify Duo is a subscription plan from Spotify Premium. It allows two people have their own Premium accounts for less money than if they each signed up separately. It is meant for couples who live together, but if you are roommates or friends sharing a house, you can use it.

With Spotify Duo, you and your partner will get your own separate logins and accounts, but you pay for them together. So, it means you both can enjoy Premium, like no ads and offline listening, but you don't have to share one account.

So, this plan saves money compared to having separate Premium accounts. To get this, you just have to live in the same place as the main account holder, and you must have a Spotify account to sign up for Duo.

Features of the Duo Plan

Spotify Duo has some interesting things that make music even better for you and your partner:

Make your own playlists

You can create playlists with all your favorite songs. This feature is one of the most likable ones and it is easy to share them on social media.

Discover new music

Spotify helps you find new songs and artists based on what you like. They also make a special playlist for you every week called ‘Discover Weekly’ with new songs they think you might enjoy.

No ads

You won't get interrupted by ads while listening, just like other Spotify premium plans.

Listen offline

You can download your playlists and listen to them even without the internet, so you can enjoy your favorite songs wherever you go without using up your data.

Duo Mix

This is a really amazing feature for you and your Duo partner. It takes the songs you both listen to and makes a playlist that mixes them together. It updates itself as you keep using Spotify. You can find it in the "Made for You" section or search for "Duo Mix." And if you have a Bluetooth speaker, you can tell it to play your Duo Mix.

Things to Check Before Buying Spotify Duo

Before buying this plan, it is really important to make sure you qualify for a Spotify Duo plan because Spotify checks if both users live at the same address. Yes. When you sign up for Duo, you have to give your address. Both people using the Duo plan need to live at the same place to qualify.

If you're the second person joining the Duo plan, you need to put in your address when you sign up using a link the main account holder gives you. If the addresses don't match, Duo won't work. Sometimes Spotify might ask you to confirm your address again. If Spotify finds out you are not following the rules for Duo, they can suspend or stop your Duo membership.

Spotify Duo Cost

The Premium Duo plan on Spotify costs $14.99 per month. But each person in the Duo only pays $7.50, so this means you can save $3.50 compared to the regular price of $10.99 for an individual plan.
