Accessing Other User Listening Habits

Casual Listener

My Question or Issue

 

I am thinking of creating a prototype web app for university project (no commerical use) that will allow users to make posts about spotify tracks they like and also make a machine learning system that recommends users with similar listening habits.

 

Is it possible to access other user's listening habits through the Web API so that recommendations of users can be made? (Even if that is only users that sign up to my web app). Thank you!

Hey @yalzerboy, it is possible to use the Web API to fetch some of a user's recently played tracks: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/reference/player/get-recently-played/

That's great thank you! I see that it requires an access token - does that mean to access each user's listening history they must log in to their account via my app?
