Group Session is off-beat between listeners

Casual Listener

Really great Spotify recently got the Group Session for multiple listening devices! However the music is differently synchronized between the devices making them off-beat.

Running together - steps are off-beat.
Dancing together - stepping on eachother's toes.
Playing in multiple rooms at party - headache.

I am having the same problem.  I golf with a friend, we walk, and both play music through our phones. I initially tried the group session to see if it would allow us to listen together while we play.  We experienced the off-beat or out of sync audio between our two devices.  We were unable to use the group session feature for this purpose as the music clashed while we were together.

Hey @SammySooser,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us 🙂

 

This is an expected behavior. Currently there is no option to automatically start the songs at the same time. When you invite your friend to the group session, they can choose to listen on their own device or to listen on your device (and control it from their device). You can head here for more information about the group session.

 

We appreciate your feedback and will make sure to pass it on to the right team. You can also have a look in our Idea Exchange to see if someone else has already made a similar suggestion. If there isn't you can give these steps a go and submit your idea. That way other users can support it. Rest assured that the higher the number of votes an idea gets, the more likely it is for it to be implemented.   

 

Hope this was helpful. If you have questions, we are here for you.
