Music-streaming service Spotify on Monday dropped the price of its Family Plan down to $14.99 (£14.99 or AU$17.99) per month for up to six people -- the exact same pricing offered by Apple Music. Spotify's previous plan meant that six people sharing an account would have been charged $34.99 per month.

The new plan includes a premium subscription, with individual accounts, anywhere in the world -- except Canada -- all collected on a single bill.

This change comes on the heels of the company's announcement that it is adding video content.
