[Social] CURIOUS TO HEAR WHAT PERSON NEXT TO YOU LISTENING TO? Music Sharing

Hello,

Just imagine a situation:

You are sitting in the bus. And listening to your favourite music on headphones. When you notice a cute person who is sitting in the bus too, and really enjoying the music, while shaking head with the beat. So curious.. WHAT SHE/HE IS LISTENING TO?!
How to know that? You take your phone from your pocket and open spotify app. There you see everyperson in 50m radius who is using Spotify and shares their music. And you see that she is listening for A-HA - TAKE ON MEE!. You connect to her music and listen to this song also. And when the bus stops, you leave it and say to her/him: ARE YOU PLANNING TO GO TO A-HA CONCERT THIS SUMMER? I LOVE THIS SONG TOO.
And you live happily ever after <3
THE END (Or maybe just a beginning :)
___


So, the thing is : a possibility to look for surrounding spotify users and see what they are listening. A possibility to connect to their song. A possibility to turn ON or turn OFF music sharing (maybe you would like a private moment, and dont want to see everyone listening for your "shame songs" haha!

I personally really really often pass a person with headphones and am very very curious, what they are listening to that moment.

This would be really cool, and would be awesome espacially in arts based environments like concerts where you could show people with mutual interests what music you like. It would work really well if we allowed it to be opt out too.

It is really cool idea. However , first Spotify Team needs to add location setter. I wanna named it as Spotify Music Dating :) 

 

Thanks for the idea.

 

Also , we can deliver our ideas to '' Spotify Help '' section ,

I think that's creepy as **bleep**. I don't want anyone nearby to see what music I'm listening too.

Hey,

 

@adrianfurgol, as mentioned at the top their would be a on/off button to match your personal prefrence.

 

Hope this clarifies!

 If it used only your public playlists and publicly available listening data, it wouldn't be as much as an invasion of privacy. It may not get the complete picture of your listening habits, but it could be a start!

I like the little intro scenario! But I think this is a wonderful idea! It would be nice to see which songs are trending in a particular area.

Marked as a new idea :)


This is not actually a new idea.

It's been posted many times before. Do you moderators even check?
