As the battle between Apple Music and Spotify continues to intensify, Apple Music is currently leading in the United States. Spotify is still very popular though, and now the company tries a tactic to lure users to sign up for a family plan: Free Hardware. On Wednesday, October 31, the company announced that it would be free Google Home Mini devices for Spotify Premium subscribers.
On its own, the Google Home Mini is offered for $ 50, while a Spotify Premium plan is $ 1
"We're excited to join the Google Home to get magical voice to our Spotify Premium Family subscribers. After all, it's more fun than sharing the music you love with people you love," said Spotify's chief executive officer Alex Norström in the announcement. "For family plan subscribers, these moments will only get better. Now when their favorite artists come up, they can just say" Hello Google, look it up! ""
When you have the Google Home Mini, you can use sentences like " Hey Google, play Spotify "to get started and" Hi Google, Pause "to put the music on hold. When you're ready to come back to it, all you need to do is say "Hi Google, continue Spotify." You can also use the functionality to find out more about what you're currently listening to with phrases like "Hey Google, what's this album?" Or "Hi Google, when did this song come out?"
If you're interested in This agreement, you may not want to keep off. Although it has not stated exactly how long the offer will be available, Spotify says that the Google Home Mini will only be available to subscribers of the family plan for a limited period starting Thursday, November 1st. To sign up and get started, head to the Spotify site.
