[Social] Friendship Playlists

Alright listen up, you are meeting someone for the first time or carpooling or you met a friend of a friend and how do you get to know them best? Through their music taste. In fact, you really want to be jamming out with them but you just don’t know what songs they like and you really don’t want that awkward silence when you know a song and they’re like.........uh......... I don’t know the words. What’s the solution you ask? A friendship playlist. You would find your friend on spotify and there would be a button next to their name that says “friendship playlist” which would automatically create a collaborative playlist consisting of all the songs you have both put on your playlists, 100% guaranteed bangin’ time while you both sing along to the songs that you both know!

Hey everyone,

 

Thanks for coming to the Idea Exchange and for bringing us your continual feedback. We also think this is a great idea and that there's an opportunity to make it happen, so we're looking into it further.

 

We'll post here when we have an update - Stay tuned!

There is something in Spotify called Blend, which lets you send a link to someone and Spotify creates a Playlist of 50 songs that both of you should like. It's under Search -> Made for you -> Blend. It's still in Beta so idk if this is availible to everyone or just people that are in the beta program. But I still agree that a way to merge playlists or create a Blend without having to leave Spotify to send a link would be nice.

I love this idea! Spotify please make this happen. I always get so nervous playing my music around people because i want everyone to be enjoying themselves or else i wont enjoy myself and this would save me a lot of trouble.

This idea is awesome. Would love to see it grab songs you both have saved in addition to songs you both have added to playlists, as well as a Discover Weekly/Release Radar/Radio-like algorithm that would add new songs based on your shared likes. I would suggest it be a radio station that you can tweak, but Spotify has already started on their way to ruining that feature by removing likes/dislikes..

I love this concept. How could it be implemented in the general Social Media.. Facebook Group?

I wish there was a more social connection in Spotify. I think listening parties would be brilliant.

Here's one I share with my daughter.

I can´t imagine the outcome of this function and I don´t think that i would use it, but if it existed would be ok.
