The Premium Duo, for couples who love music, went for $16.99. And the well-known Family plan has increased to $5.99.

The chain of controversial events involving Spotify seems not to be restricted to the field of prices alone. Another controversial decision involves the policy related to Car Thing, a device that promised to revolutionize the way we interact with music in the car. It turns out that the accessory didn’t work out very well and Spotify decided to discontinue the product. However, it will not refund anyone who paid for the subscription to this dubiously useful gadget.

Returning to the imminent price increase, the reason given by the company for these jumps in subscription prices is explained as an essential part of the application’s evolutionary process. This process includes the inclusion of some new features, such as the AI DJ function, expansion in the offering of podcasts, audiobook offers and much more. These additions are planned and make sense in the context of growth and competition. But it is clear that these continuous increases have caused discontent among people. See an excerpt from the statement, which explains the decision taken:

“The market has continued to evolve since our launch. So that we can continue to innovate, we are changing our Premium prices in several markets around the world. These updates will help us continue to deliver value to fans and artists on our platform.”

In addition to increasing prices, it is very important to say that whoever uses the free plan also had limited access to song lyrics in the app. In other words, in addition to making the product more expensive, it is also removing features and functions for free users.
