It's very simple,
You don't want people to have to stop using Spotify just because they want to do something together or talk, right ?
As your users, we would gladly not quit Spotify to be with our friends/family/partners, if you just give us the possibility.
The idea is to create a group of 2 people or more, which when joined, perfectly synchronizes the listening experience between the devices, so we are listening to the same songs at the exact same timing.
Admins can add/remove songs to the playlist etc...
And for people who have microphones on their headphones, you can communicate in voice over the music by pressing one of the buttons of the headphones.
Now we can go out to the supermarket and listen to music and chat together even if we're in different sections,
Now couples can be sharing music experiences and talk when they're separated in different places
Now we can be listening to music (or podcasts) all the time :)
Let's get it moving ! This should take 48 hours to be added, there are a lot more advanced features we need to add, so at least let's get the basics down already...
