A regular single-user monthly plan currently costs ₹119 a month for ad-free, high fidelity music.

The membership will give users will have access to 450,000 podcast titles and 50 million tracks or songs.

For offline listening, only three devices will be able to download songs and podcasts while sharing the same family plan.

“Spotify’s Premium Family plan has been loved across markets, and we know that our users in India wanted it when we launched in February. Family time and recreation are a core part of our culture, and we want users to discover new music and podcasts through their family, without compromising on their taste and app experience. We are thrilled to bring this subscription tier to the country” added Amarjit Batra, Managing Director - India, Spotify.

The plan will also come with community boards, where parents will be able to control the Explicit Content Filter setting for music for all other accounts on their plan.
