Have you ever attempted to play something on Spotify, but you received a message that your account was already being used on a different device? It happens. If you shared your Spotify password with someone else, it would even happen regularly.
The truth is that it could be very frustrating to be unable to listen to your songs as soon as you want, and annoying for the other party to have their songs cut off when you switch devices instantly. To avoid these hindrances, do you know you can both listen to Spotify simultaneously? Yes, you can.
It can be done in a couple of ways, on the desktop application or the mobile application for your Android and iOS device. See How 2 People Can Listen To A Spotify Account At The Same Time:
How Can I Allow 2 People To Listen To One Spotify Account At Once?
The simplest way to make this happen is to subscribe to a Spotify Premium for Family plan, and you will only have to pay $14.99 every month. This is more costly than a normal Premium plan, but it lets you and about five family members share one account.
The plan grants you all the benefits regular users enjoy, like ad-free streaming, downloading music to listen offline e.t.c, for as cheap as $2.50 per person. The necessary requirement is that users of this plan must live at the same address. Spotify will confirm this from time to time by prompting you for your home address.

Another way to allow 2 people to listen to one Spotify account is by using Offline Mode, a feature that is accessible by all Premium users, not only families.
Offline Mode allows you to listen to any songs or podcasts you downloaded on your device, even if you will be unable to stream new songs. Offline even allows you to jam your songs without disturbing or being disturbed by anybody else. See what you have to do:
- Begin to listen to Spotify on a device with a Spotify Premium account.
- Enable Offline Mode. On your personal computer, tap the 3 dots in the upper-left corner. Hover your mouse over "File," and then tap "Offline Mode" in the menu you will see. On a Mac, tap "Spotify" in the menu bar way up on the display, and then tap "Offline Mode."
On an Android or iOS device, head to "Home" at the bottom-left of the display, and then click on the gear in the top-right corner. Choose "Playback," and then make sure "Offline" is toggled on in the next page.

- Start listening to the songs you have downloaded.
When that is done, even if anyone begins to listen to the same Spotify account, you will not be affected. You can disable "Offline Mode" the same way you enabled it.
That is that.
