Starting this week, Spotify Premium Family subscribers can get a free Google Home Mini
Not a bad deal if you use Spotify often.
Starting tomorrow, Nov. 1, Spotify Premium Family subscribers can get a free Google Home Mini. The holiday promotion between both companies is good for current and new Spotify Premium Family members and runs through Dec. 31.
Available only in the United States, the Google Home Mini promotion also includes a streamlined Spotify setup. Among the many Google commands Spotify subscribers can try are “Hey Google, play Spotify” and “Hey Google, resume Spotify.”
According to Alex Norström, Chief Premium Business Officer:
We’re excited to be partnering with Google Home to bring the magic of voice to our Spotify Premium Family subscribers. After all, what’s more fun than sharing the music you love with the people you love
For Family Plan subscribers, enjoying those moments will only get better. Now anytime their favorite artists comes up, they can simply say ‘Hey Google, turn it up!’
Spotify Premium Family is priced at $14.99 per month. For this, you can use up to five regular Spotify Premium accounts, which are normally priced at $9.99 per month.
Recent news around Spotify and the Google Home Mini
First introduced in 2017, the Google Home Mini is around four inches in diameter and includes a fabric top in white, black, or coral. It’s similar to Amazon’s Echo Dot and regularly priced at $49, although it’s often discounted at retail outlets such as Best Buy.
Back in August, Samsung and Spotify announced a new partnership that will make the music service part of the set-up experience on Samsung devices. In addition to smartphones, this integration extends to smart televisions and the Galaxy Home speaker.
Freebies are always nice and with Apple Music gaining in popularity, Spotify’s offer is a good one and one that can’t be matched. The $349 Apple HomePod is the only Apple Music-compatible smart speaker to date. In other words, don’t expect Apple to “match” this offer anytime soon!
