Music streaming services have revolutionized the way we listen to music, with access to millions of songs on demand. From Spotify to Apple Music to Amazon Music and more, it can be overwhelming to make a decision on the right music streaming services for your specific tastes and needs. This can only get more complicated when the whole family's involved, and you're having to pick a service to satisfy everyone.
With all the different streaming devices being used these days, it's important to keep product protection in mind. An extended warranty plan can keep your electronics protected so you can stream without the stress. To help you decide what makes the most sense for your family, we’ve rounded up the top family plans for streaming music.
The Spotify family plan provides your household with 6 ad-free user profiles that function the same as individual accounts. You also have the option to build mixed playlists with members of your family if you want to listen together, or just create a unique blend of your music tastes.
Even if you only get a family plan for two people it can make financial sense, since it works out cheaper for each person when compared to an individual Spotify plan.
If you’re an iPhone user, there’s a good chance you use Apple Music, and there’s also a good chance there are other iPhone users in your household. The Apple Music family plan allows up to six people to join and have access to unlimited Apple Music streaming on their devices. Since it’s less than double the price of an individual plan, this one is also worth it even if you only have one person to share with.
The Amazon Music unlimited family plan allows up to 6 household accounts that can be used across multiple devices, so you won’t need to worry about being logged out of your profile if you switch from desktop to mobile apps! If you already have Amazon Prime and use Prime Music, it might be worth the upgrade to gain access to unlimited music and podcasts—all with HD sound.
When you sign up for a Tidal family plan, you along with five household members get personalized profiles and complete access to over 100 million songs, ad-free, in HiFi. If you want additional features like activity tracking and innovative audio formats like Dolby Atmos, Sony 360 Reality Audio, in addition to the included HiFi, you can pay a little extra to get the HiFi Plus plan.
Cost: $14.99/month for standard HiFi plan, $29.99 for HiFi Plus.
Before we had YouTube playlists and Spotify radio, there was Pandora—the original intuitive music streaming service, which is why many listeners choose the Pandora family plan for their household. This platform also allows up to 6 users, which is a great value when compared to the cost of individual plans.
