[Mobile][Social] Permanent Scannable Group Session Code

So trying to make it short, since spotify session became a thing, me and my best friend have been using it almost every day before sleeping listening to music together and this new spotify feature really marked our relationship. However everyday we have to send the session’s scannable code / link, my idea at first was to buy her a gift (a medallion with the code of one of the songs that mean a lot to us because we listened a lot to it) because every session has a different code and if it was the session code it would not work because she would not be able to joint the session with the old code, but if it was possible to create a scannable code of a permanent session that she can scan every time we want to listen to music together it would be the best thing ever. 

 

Adding a permanent group session scannable code would be awesome so it can be used in key chains and other ideas as gifts for friends.

Also, it would be awesome to show the party code on the Chromecast (optional by default or only when host starts a party). Me and my roommates really often listen Spotify in the living room TV and it would be cool if all the roommates could just join the session by scanning the code displayed on the TV

Just discovered group sessions last night. This morning - we had to do the same thing where we had to send a new code.

 

It would be great to have a permanent code that can be used. To add on to your idea it would be nice to determine whenever you start a group session whether you want it to be a permanent session or timed session (I guess we would need the option for a permanent session vs timed session).

 

Devils advocate would say - well what if you didn't want to always have the potential of someone dropping in to your session and screwing up your vibe? 

Solution - provide a push notification for when someone tries to join your session that you can either approve or deny their entrance.
