Spotify to Offer Free Google Home Minis
Spotify family plan master account holders can claim a free Google smart speaker worth $49.

(CCM) — Spotify is finalizing plans to hand out free Google Home Mini smart speakers to Spotify family plan subscribers, according to a USA Today report.

The Spotify family plan costs $14.99 for up to six families members, but only the master account owner (who can add other family members to the account) will receive a free smart speaker as part of the deal. The Google Home Mini regularly retails at $49.

The aim of the deal is to raise the profiles of both Spotify and Google' Home products, according to Alex Norström, Spotify's chief premium business officer. With the advent of voice and smart speakers this now becomes a key context where people are listening to music. So teaming up with Google to invest in voice and to bring a Google device to all our Spotify families is a holy smokes moment," he said. "Our goal is ubiquity. We want to be everywhere where our users are."

To get a free Google Home Mini, Spotify family plan master account owners need to visit the streaming music service's web site and claim one before Dec. 31, 2018.
