[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,
Arturas from Lithuania

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.

What is eavesdropping? i am lost...

This would actually be so awesome

@Paolabiasiolo It is basically a way of "sneak peaking" what other people are listening and a cool way to hear out new music. An option that would have to be enabled by the user to be eavesdropped (seen what they are listening by people in the proximity) and to eavesdrop others (to see what others are listening). It would have either 2 buttons, one to be eavesdropped and one to eavesdrop or one button that turns off/on both features. That would be up to discussion with the broad community.

Weird name but I like the idea! You've earned my vote

This would be so cool. Seeing little profile bubbles of the people around you and being able to listen in. Maybe you could also drag certain bubbles into a group and listen together? Like a next level social music experience.

Amazing idea @Strangebob !

UnrealThing

Great idea, however, if they implement this they need to make it bulletproof. Because it's pretty invasive on privacy and could be easily exploited by 0-day attacks.
