// will increase prices on April 30, 2021. At least in Great Britain, the USA and in some EU countries such as Ireland.

As our sister publication Techadvisor reports, Spotify is said to have informed its users about the price increase via email. Accordingly, "Spotify Premium Duo" and "Family" as well as "Student" should become more expensive in Great Britain and the EU. In the USA, only the price for family membership is supposed to increase.

PC-WELT picks up on: For the time being no price increase in Germany

As Spotify confirmed to PC-WELT when asked, the prices in Germany for all Spotify music subscriptions remain unchanged for the time being.

Family membership is sometimes significantly more expensive

In the UK, family membership will cost 16.99 pounds sterling from April 30, 2021 instead of the previous 14.99 pounds. In the US, the price for the Spotify Family will rise from the previous $ 14.99 to $ 15.99. In various EU countries such as Ireland, where Spotify Family has previously cost 14.99 euros, the monthly fee increases to 17.99 euros.

Student and Premium Duo

In Great Britain and various EU countries, Spotify is also increasing the prices for the Premium Duo subscription and for “Student”. Student costs from April 30th 5.99 pounds or 5.99 euros and Premium Duo costs 13.99 pounds or 12.99 euros. The price increase is therefore 1 pound or one euro throughout.

Existing customers can still pay the old, cheaper prices for a month. The price increase will therefore only come into effect for existing customers in June 2021.

No information is yet available on a Spotify Premium price increase for a user.

Spotify justifies the price increase with the fact that they want to continue to bring new content and new functions to customers. A few days ago it was also announced that the Spotfy founder would like to buy the English football club Arsenal FC.

"Spotify Premium" currently costs 9.99 euros for a user in Germany. You can cancel the subscription at any time.
