If you've ever wondered if your dog would rather play rap than rock & # 39; n & # 39; roll, Spotify has the answers with a new pet playlist generator that opens on Wednesday, January 15th the market came.
The generator (spotify.com/pets) lets you choose what kind of pet you have – from a cat or dog to an iguana, a bird and a hamster. Once you've selected your pet, you'll need to answer a few questions, such as whether your cat is more energetic or relaxed, shy or friendly.
You can even add a photo of your pet and its name to make the playlist official. Once you've entered all of this information, Spotify will create a playlist that you can listen to with your furry or scaly friend based on your personal taste in music and the answers you have given to your pet.
Depending on what type of pet you have, you will most likely find some songs with "cat" or "dog" in the name, as well as songs that you have occasionally heard in the past. The playlist contains some surprises based on your listening story and the personality of your furry friend. And of course you can share the playlist on your social media.
Spotify said it worked with pet experts to create the pet playlist algorithm.
"While music for pets is not an exact science, we consulted pet industry experts to find the best possible approach to what works best for our featured animals," Spotify said in the FAQ.
In this way, the streaming service tries to add more social and interactive features. Spotify's end-of-year summary, entitled "Unwrapped," resonated on social media platforms where people shared the artists, songs, and albums they'd heard most often over the past year.
There is also talk of an unpublished feature called "Tastebuds" that allows you to discover new music in your friends 'lists by putting together a playlist based on your friends' similar taste in music.
Overall, Spotify remains the world champion in music streaming services. The service has over 100 million subscribers worldwide and more than 30 million titles in the catalog. In comparison, Spotify's closest rival, Apple Music, has around 60 million subscribers per month, but has a larger inventory of around 45 million songs to listen to.
