Spotify, a leading music streaming platform, will increase the price of Family Plan subscription by $1 to $15.99 per month in the United States.
Spotify will increase the price of its Student, Duo and Family Plan subscriptions in the United Kingdom. Student and Duo monthly plans in the UK will cost 5.99 pounds ($8.32) and 13.99 pounds, respectively, up by a pound from the earlier plan.
