The monthly plan for six users living at the same address has increased from RM22.40 to RM23.80, effective March 2021, said Spotify.

“Beginning on February 1, we’re increasing the price of Spotify Premium Family for new users from RM22.40 to RM23.80. Existing subscribers have a one-month grace period and will see the price change on their next billing cycle after March 1,” a spokesperson said in a statement to LifestyleTech.

The new pricing is also reflected on the music streaming service’s official Malaysia website.

“With more than 60 million tracks and 1.9 million podcasts, Spotify continues to innovate and invest in providing our listeners with greater value than ever before, including the best audio content and user experience.

“We offer a variety of subscription plans tailored to our users’ needs, and we occasionally update our prices to reflect local macroeconomic factors and meet market demands,” the spokesperson added.

Prices for its monthly individual and duo plans remain unchanged at RM14.90 and RM19.80 respectively.

The company has also introduced a prepaid plan starting at RM1.50 per day for users to enjoy an ad-free experience on the music streaming service.

Users can also opt for a seven-day plan at RM4.90 or a monthly plan at RM15.90. Currently, prepaid plans under these pricing tiers only allow for payment through telco services.

A 12-month prepaid plan is also available for RM149, which users can pay for via credit/debit card or through their telco.

Spotify first made its services officially available to Malaysians in 2013.
