Family and Child Plan Request

Definitely .This is crazy. Zwift are missing out on millions of users. Everyone I know has family members that want to use the equipment but another membership is crazy. Spotify, Amazon, ifit, Netflix, etc the list goes on have the ability to have a family account. Why not zwift. Sort this out and stop being greedy. You will win out in the end.

Completely agree. Great opportunity for any new competitors in the market. I would assume this request is so reasonable that Zwift only lose goodwill and trust. Trust is lost in a second and takes alot of time to rebuild.

I too would like a family plan. I am currently the only person who uses zwift but my wife and 5 kids would like to use it as well. Why isn’t there an option to do so? Looks like I will check out other platforms.

I’ve had Zwift for a few years now and used it off and on. I occasionally attach my wife’s bike to the turbo trainer so she can do a workout indoors. She’s not much of a bike rider but she’s starting to enjoy it more. She probably uses it once a week at the moment.
Currently, I have to let her ride as me (lower the FTP on the workout screen), save it to Strava, mark it as private in Strava, export the GPX, log out, log in to her Strava and import it then log back in to mine to delete the activity.
This is absolutely bonkers. Why can’t I just have a profile selector in Zwift where other profiles can be linked to other Strava accounts? The account would only let 1 person be riding at once anyway so there’s no possibility of account sharing outside of the family. I don’t think it should cost anything extra either - it’s something that should have always been there. Along with many other people I’m now seriously looking at Rouvy instead.

Please offer a family plan. It would be very helpful! I really want my wife to join but she is struggling with the idea of paying for two accounts. I could talk her into joining for a $20 or $25 family account because we also have a 16 year old who would be interested in using it.

I am currnetly on Tacx desktop and still have free tacx original software so can ride till my heart is content for free or £9.99 per month

We currently have 4 family adults wanting to use my trainer due to lockdown.
One member has strava for his team races.

I am considering buying a second trainer so we can have couples racing together but ideally we would all be on strava.

Amazed there is no family plan. I would be happy to support everyones rides for a plan, but going from free to £9.99 to 4 x zwift memberships is not viable.

Hopefully, having read previous posts, Zwift will employ someone with a new attitude that sees they are losing so much money in a futile attempt to force households to pay per person. Just not going to happen. Ever

plus 1 for a family plan - most other subscriptions do this and we buy them .spotify, netflix for example.
hurry up before lock down ends and we all switch off!

Yep agreed. Same trainer for me and my partner. Joint membership, pay slightly less but means you can’t be logged in at the same time. Winner and only fair.

I have two daughters at home due to Covid restrictions (university etc) and my wife. Non are keen cyclists but they like to hop on the turbo trainer once in a while. I only have 1 x turbo trainer. Surely it makes MASSIVE financial sense to offer a family membership at say 150% of single membership with just ONE member allowed to ride at any time. Zwift would get 50% more than they are going to get right now as I just won’t pay for another membership for casual use. We need to grab young riders NOW if we want to build the Wiggins, the Froomes and the Thomas’s of tomorrow. Look at it as an INVESTMENT - these family members will probably want their own full account in a few years when they move out.

A huge RIDE ON for ZWIFT if / when they add a fair family plan …

Just found this forum when searching for Zwift family membership as it isn’t offered on the app or member page. I am on a 7 day trial just now and unfortunately paying 14.99 each for four of us in the family is out of reach. I see this thread goes back to 2018 so I guess nobody at Zwift actually reads it otherwise things would either have changed or there would be a statement somewhere from them.
I see above a few people talking about Rouvy. I haven’t heard of that before but will take a look and see. I am using Peleton just now at work which is used by about 15 of us but would prefer to get a more bike ride feel than spin… Let’s see, maybe it’s too expensive to change.

+1 for Family / household plan. 41.3k views, seems like free money for Zwift if they bother!

Views do not bother, but votes should - 656 does not seem to be enough…

This is definitely needed, or at least be able to have 2 persons on the same acompt. At the moment Zwift appears more interested in making money than doing things for the community/family users.

Netflix and Amazon Video are doing it !

Family sharing is a much needed feature. Zwift competitor Rouvy allows up to 2 family members to share a master account for free. Each family member has his or her own account, but only the master-account holder pays the $12.99/mo Rouvy subscription–similar to Apple’s family subscription.

Family plans (additional family members pay a nominal fee), shared family subscriptions (2-3 free add-on accounts), or a combination of both (2 free accounts and then $4.99/mo for each additional family member) should be seriously considered, or Zwift will find itself losing loyal members.

I agree this is definitely a MUST HAVE feature !

Yeah, explaining it away like online games doesn’t make sense. This feels more like a Spotify or Netflix subscription even if it has strong game elements. It’s a content subscription and those are all done by household. And allow multiple users at once but I think people would be happy with one user at once in most case shere.

And many online games allow you to have multiple avatars/characters. I’ve 100% played online games with my wife without buying two copies of it. We’ve switched characters for a lot but there are also ones like Diablo 3 on the Switch where we can play at the same time locally even though there are heavy online components.

At least, that’s my initial impression. I’m still looking into what system I want to jump into and this is factoring in strongly. Sounds like there still hasn’t been any news/movement on this?

Insane that Zwift does not have a family account option. I’m not looking for multiple concurrent users, We only have one turbo trainer in the house. We just need a more cost effective way to allow myself, my wife and two daughters to enjoy Zwift.

Please sort this out ASAP.

Definitely a MUST HAVE! A spouse account with significant discount would help a lot for brand loyalty! Win-win.

Logged in again in the hope a family plan has been started. It would be good to merge all related threads as it looks like they are so fragmented Zwift are not seeing the gravity of the situation. We have one trainer and up to 4 users. No way will we ever pay full price for more than one rider. Neither should zwift expect us to. So looks like no family plan so will miss out again on sharing rides and stats. Other than the stats and shared rides the zwift platform is nowhere near as good as my FREE Tacx advance training TTS 4 software. My trainer is controlled much better with Tacx. So We are stuck using different software per rider. Such a shame.

Also. No point having a Zwift forum without input from official from Zwift. Anyone from Zwift like to comment on the madness of missing out on so many extra accounts?

Anyway off to ride on Tacx till things change

All the new threads I see regarding this request are directed here. There is no fragmentation of this request as far as I know.
