Spotify is a popular music streaming platform with millions of users around the world. One of the exciting features of Spotify is its premium subscription, which allows users to enjoy uninterrupted, high-quality music. Spotify premium comes with many benefits, like ad-free music, unlimited skips, offline listening, and the ability to add family members to a premium account. If you already have a premium subscription and want to add a new member to your account, this blog post will guide you on how to do that.
The Challenge of adding a member to Spotify Premium
Spotify restricts a premium account to one person, but you can add up to five members to your account. By adding members to your account, each member can enjoy the premium privileges without paying for a separate account. However, Spotify has some strict rules that users need to follow to add new members to premium accounts. This blog post will discuss several methods that you can use to add a member to Spotify premium.

Why Can’t I Add a Member to Spotify Premium
1. You’ve already added five members to your Premium account which is the maximum limit.
Fix: Remove one of the members if you need to add a new member to your account.
2. The email address you are trying to add is already linked to a separate Spotify account.
Fix: Ask the member if they have used the email address and remove that email address from their account before adding them to your Premium Family account.
3. The member is using a different platform.
Fix: Make sure the member is using the same platform and country as your account to add them to your Premium Family account.
One of the significant benefits of the Premium Family plan is that you can enjoy unlimited personalized playlists, discover new music, and listen to music offline. You can also control each member’s access to the account by setting up parental controls.
