How much does the premium membership cost at Spotify and what benefits does it bring? Well, you can already use the “Spotify Free” model without paying – but there are some limitations. In this article, we will discuss the price of “Spotify Premium” in its various options and the exact differences between them. Essentially, there are two memberships available at Spotify: the free, ad-supported “Spotify Free” membership and the premium subscription. The premium membership comes with the same benefits, but it is offered in four different price models: Individual, Duo, Family, and Student.
## Costs and Benefits of the Premium Membership
The Spotify app and web player are completely free of charge, just like creating an account. However, to access certain features and enjoy unlimited music streaming, you will need to subscribe to the premium plan. Of course, if you can tolerate ads and the limited options for music playback, you can still use “Spotify Free” for free. In that case, the streaming service functions more like an online radio rather than a true on-demand service. With the premium access, you have total freedom to choose which song plays next and unleash the inner DJ in you.

## Details about the Paid “Spotify Premium” Subscription
The premium membership grants you full access to the entire Spotify catalog without interrupting your listening experience with ads, except for podcasts. In comparison, the free version offers a lower audio quality, limited song skips, and random playback. The “Family” plan allows you to share the premium subscription with up to 5 additional family members, each having their own Spotify account. For couples, there’s the “Duo” plan, which is slightly cheaper and offers the premium benefits for two accounts. Spotify considers family members to be individuals who share the same address and live in the same household. If you want to invite family members or roommates to join the family plan, we explain how to do it here. Keep in mind that the student discount on Spotify is valid for a maximum of 12 months (1 year), and you need to be registered with UNiDAYS as a student to qualify.
