Finally. The deal they had with Rogers/Fido had to end for them to treat us LITERALLY like the rest of the planet who have had Family Spotify for a while. Good 'ol Rogers sticking it to people who aren't even their customers...only in Canada.

Would be great if Fido offers the 10% off on this like they have for the normal subscription.

I was expecting it too. Rogers agreement is probably over. Great news!

Does family need to be in the same household? Anyone have any experience sharing with family in different households?

The UI in google play music is confusing and disorganized. The content on Spotify is updated faster/more complete than Apple Music.

In Spotify it's easy to select all or some of your library for offline listening. Also the flexibility of playing between devices, multiple quality selection for audio.

Funny, because I've found the exact opposite - Google Play's interface was intuitive - easy to download playlists offline with 1 tap ("down" icon), and audio quality selection in settings, etc etc. I like the option to listen via a web interface, whereas Spotify you have to install their application locally. (Not great for at work)

To each their own though! :)

"Can I add friends too?
This special discount is only for members of the same family, who must all live at the same address."

Does anyone know how intense they are with tracking IPs? With everyone having their own devices and SIM cards these days, it seems expected to have multiple IPs accessing the content.

Of course it's because I want to split this with people who do not live at my address...

Each family member gets an individual account.
