Spotify is giving away free smart speakers.
From November 1, new and existing owners of Premium for Family accounts in the US can receive a gratis Google Home Mini as part of their subscription.
Spotify’s Premium for Family subscription offers personalized Spotify accounts for up to six family members for a total cost of $14.99 per month.
Once configured, Google Home’s voice recognition feature Voice Match will be able to identify up to six different voices, meaning each user’s account on a Spotify family plan will be voice enabled.
In Spotify’s blog post announcing the news, the firm said that the integration was “just the beginning”.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Google Home to bring the magic of voice to our Spotify Premium Family subscribers.
