[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 ❤️
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.

LIKE THIS IDEA? PLEASE VOTE UP AND LETS CREATE EVEN BETTER, CONNECTED SPOTIFY COMMUNITY 

Cheers,

Hey everyone,

 

It seems that this idea ended up in the wrong board accidentally, so we're bringing it back.

 

We're keeping the previous Not Right Now status, as we don't have any immediate plans to implement this. As soon as we have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here.

 

Take care.

Really cool with Spotify Business?

Fantastic Idea! Geographical location for members would be a great way to discover new music

Love this idea, but I think I'd also like a filter by Genre.

It should be applied to the first new update ! Please make this feature work 🙂

This could be an incredibly powerful feature. Even just knowing what those around you are listening to would be interesting, especially travelling to different countries for example. There are certainly some privacy issues here but location services could easily be turned off for those not wishing to use the feature. I am not sure about the ability to specifically identify people without them knowing it. Perhaps a simple thumbs up or similar function would work better initially or perhaps the ability to initiate a quick voice chat.

Good idea   Please consider

Would really prefer Spotify to stay away from becoming a social media. Maybe it's just me

I have always wondered about this too!

 

It'd be a great feature for Spotifys existing and on the edge premium users!

I feel like this is a better idea for a third party app rather then a feature in spotify. But if the would do it I wouldn't complain ^^

This sounds really good but I think it should be same artist instead of song. I just feel that if the feature is only matching by song it will highly favor those listening to popular music. 

If I'm on the train listening to for example Liar by Korn I don't really care if anyone else is listening to the same song, I'm more intrested in knowing if someone on the train is listening to Korn.
