The waging war between Spotify and Apple Music recently saw the former lose its leading position to the Cupertino offering, but the fight isn't over yet. Spotify today announced a new offer for those who subscribe to its family plan - formally known as Spotify Premium for Family - which includes a free Google Home Mini for subscribers.
Spotify's family plan is pretty compelling by itself, with a monthly $14.99 fee giving customers access to Premium features on up to six accounts. That's a pretty good value considering an individual subscription costs $9.99, but Spotify and Google are making the deal sweeter by offering the entry-level smart speaker, which usually sells for $49. Among the many features of the Google Home Mini, it offers a new way to interact with Spotify itself, giving users the ability to ask about a song or singer, as well as controlling music playback using their voice.

The offer is only available for a limited time, however. It starts tomorrow, November 1, and runs through the end of 2018, and it's available for existing and new customers alike. It's also only available in the United States, unfortunately. If you'd like to get your own Google Home Mini for free, you can sign up to get one here.
If you got your Google Home Mini from Spotify, sign in with the Google account you linked when filling out the promotion form. If you don't see any steps on the screen, tap the plus + at the top-left corner of the screen, select Set up device, and then choose Set up new devices in your home to get there. I've tried: unlinking any music account in the Google Home app, logging out of Spotify, unplugging the Google Home mini, plugging it back in, logging back into Spotify, and relinking the account in the Google Home app, but it STILL is only giving me the Spotify Free option. It's like it doesn't recognize that I am a premium member. With a Spotify Premium subscription, you may be eligible for a free Google Home Mini speaker. The popular streaming service teamed up with Google to offer up free speakers to all new and existing.
Spotify has recently made its way into a bunch of third-party services, including Google's Clock app for Android and Microsoft's Skype. Samsung also announced a partnership with the music streaming service at its Unpacked event in August, which saw the arrival of Spotify in the SmartThings app as well as integration with some other Samsung services. This cooperation with other companies and services could help it fight back against Apple Music, but it remains to be seen if it manages to retake the crown.
