Spotify gives away free Google Home Minis

If you subscribe to Spotify's premium family plan, and also happen to be located in the US, the streaming service is going to give you a free Google Home Mini.

Starting 1 November and running through the end of 2018, subscribers can go to this link and register for their free smart speaker. This goes for existing account holders, too. Spotify's family plan gives you profiles for six users and costs $14.99 a month.

Music is still the number one reason people are using smart speakers, and there's benefit for both Spotify and Google here: Spotify gets more subscribers and Google gets more people using services like YouTube Music Premium and, more importantly, gets more of its speakers into people's homes.

It's also important for Spotify to keep its foothold in the smart speaker era, where these companies are able to push users to their own music services. Spotify doesn't have any of its own smart speakers, so it's in its best interests to integrate with hardware makers as much as it can.

By virtue of their price, the Echo Dot and Home Mini are two of the best-selling smart speakers right now. For Amazon and Google, getting these in homes means users have something to build an ecosystem around - the hope being they'll spend more money on Alexa or Google Assistant-powered gadgets.
