Music Streaming Giant, Spotify Teams Up With Meditation App Headspace


Spotify has announced a new joint subscription offer that will bundle the streaming music giant with Headspace. The app will feature meditation sessions and “mindfulness training.”
The app launched on Thursday (November 3rd) in four of the five Nordic countries, with the U.K. and the Netherlands launching soon, users can pay one price to subscribe to both services, using a single login.

The bundle will bring the monthly price for each subscription down from about €20 (£17.80) to €14.99 (£13.34), giving Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark the first run at the offer. However it’s very important to note that this is not a merging of the apps, It seems to just be two apps and services with one discounted bill and does not appear to have any cross-app content sharing.

Headspace describes itself in the App Store as “meditation made simple” with a catalogue of short guided meditation that they believe, “can help improve your focus, exercise mindful awareness, relieve anxiety and reduce stress.” According to Spotify, Headspace has had 10 million users to date.

I think this is a really smart move on both companies parts, with life, work there isn’t a lot of downtime , so I think people would really benefit from this new team up. We all need to take the time to look after our mental health and wellbeing and this will provide people with that opportunity on the go.
