You may not admit it right now but Spotify has made life easier for you. Before you’d only settle on torrents or YouTube videos with ads but now, you rely on Spotify with Premium subscription for your audiophile needs. Less than two weeks ago, an update rolled out that streamlined navigation, better search, and artist radio. It also got a stand-alone app for Wear OS smartwatches. Spotify Premium for Students added Showtime subscription. Spotify also started checking if Family Plan users live in the same house.
More improvements will be added to Spotify in the coming months especially after Spotify Premium for Family receives the Google Home Mini as a new family member. Yes, for those of you who have the mini smart speaker, you can start enjoying talking to the Google Assistant and command it to control and manage the music streaming player.
The Spotify Premium for Family plan is ideal for the whole family whose every member is a music lover. With Google Home integration, it’s easier for them to enjoy music with a quick command.
The $14.99 monthly payment already includes the Google Home service. It can match up to six different voices so everyone in the family can speak.
Google Home recently worked with Disney to add music and special effects to kids’ storytime. Now with Spotify, kids and parents will have more enjoyable moments together.
You can get the Google Home Mini from Spotify for a limited time. The premium for Family plan master account holders can buy from HERE starting today, November 1.
