Spotify is planning to raise prices in certain regions including Europe and the United States. However, the price hikes aren't uniform and, thankfully, they don't appear to be extreme.

In news that could worry avid music streamers, Spotify recently announced that it will be hiking prices for its audio streaming service in certain regions, namely the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union

The price hike isn't uniform across these areas, however, and it isn't particularly substantial. In the United States, only the Family Plan will be seeing a price increase, going to $15.99 from its current rate of $14.99. Considering that the Family Plan provides premium accounts to up to six family members, this is still a great value for money option. 

In the EU and the UK, however, Spotify has bigger price hikes planned. The Family Plan will now cost £16.99, a £2 increase from before. Meanwhile, the Duo plan - offering two premium accounts - will now go for £12.99 (which is actually higher than the cost of a Family Plan in the US). 

In the EU, Spotify is hiking the Student plan to €5.99. The Duo plan is getting bumped up to €12.99, and lastly, the Family Plan sees a €3 increase to €17.99.

While US Spotify users have relatively little to worry about, EU and UK users might find Apple Music to be a more affordable alternative, depending on their plan.
