Spotify has upgraded its family plan pricing in order to match not only Apple Music but also Google Play Music.
The music-streaming service now charges $14.99 a month for up to six Premium accounts per family. Apple Music's family plan similarly costs $14.99 for up to six people per family, and Google Play Music - which changed its family plan pricing in December - charges the same as well.
The Spotify Family Plan debuted in 2014 and originally started at $14.99 for two users a month, $19.99 for three, $24.99 for four, and $29.99 for five users. There was no six-person plan available. Now, however, a family of up to six can join and pay $14.99 a month instead of $29.99.
