Christmas comes early with Spotify and Google! With the Spotify Premium for Family plan, families now have unlimited access to the songs, playlists, and artists they love – and love to enjoy together. Starting today, Spotify is teaming up with Google to give Spotify Premium for Family master account owners in the UK a Google Home Mini as part of their subscription. Now, music lovers belonging to all age groups will be able to share their favourite music with the entire family, simply by asking their Google Home Mini (powered by the Google Assistant). The special offer launches today, and both new and existing Spotify Premium for Family plan master account holders in the UK can sign up at www.spotify.com/uk/family.
Marc Hazan, VP Global Head Of Premium Business Development at Spotify, says: “We’re thrilled to be working once again with Google to bring the magic of voice to our Spotify Premium Family subscribers in the UK via the Google Home Mini, following our successful partnership in the US last year. Enjoying your favourite songs and playlists in the home has never been so easy.”
Spotify Premium for Family subscribers already enjoy personalised Spotify accounts for up to six family members at the same address for only £14.99 per month. Each person on the plan also has an individual account; this means that everyone can save their personalised playlists and recommendations.
Now families can discover and enjoy music together at home just by using their voice. Once configured, Voice Match on Google Home will identify up to six people, meaning each person can continue to enjoy a personalised experience.
Lionel Guicherd-Callin, European product manager at Google, adds: ‘Being able to access thousands of Spotify playlists via the Google Assistant has always been a seamless experience, so giving families the power to do it from anywhere in the house with the Google Home Mini is a natural next step. With a simple, ‘Hey Google,’ the whole family can enjoy their favourite music, while also using it for other helpful assistance designed especially for families.’
Spotify has even streamlined the set-up to get families playing their favourite music sooner.
To start listening, just say:
“Hey Google, play Spotify”
“Hey Google, resume Spotify”
“Hey Google, shuffle some music”
“Hey Google, play my Discover Weekly”
“Hey Google, play Dinner Party music”
“Hey Google, play Study music”
“Hey Google, play Hip Hop music”
“Hey Google, play my favourite music”
“Hey Google, play ‘Shape of You by Ed Sheeran’
Then, when you’re in the zone, go:
“Hey Google, pause.”
“Hey Google, turn it up.”
“Hey Google, please quiet down.”
“Hey Google, like this song.”
“Hey Google, dislike this song.”
“Hey Google, skip forward 20 seconds.”
“Hey Google, skip backward one minute.”
And when you’re ready to discover more, try:
“Hey Google, play the next song.”
“Hey Google, what’s playing?
“Hey Google, who is this singer?”
“Hey Google, what’s this song?”
“Hey Google, what’s this album?”
Hey Google, when did this song come out?”
