Spotify launched its beta for group sessions back in May, but this week the music streaming service is introducing new functionality for the beta. From this week, premium users can gather and host remote listening parties where members of a group can remotely control the playlist or podcast.
To explain the difference briefly, the other functionality is for a shared device. With this new feature, participants can stream music on multiple devices, e.g. B. on family members in different cities. For example, my brother in the Bay Area and I in Portland can be in a group session, both add songs to a playlist and have that playlist play on our own devices at the same time. If either of us pauses the song or skips a track, the change will immediately appear on the other person̵
Start with: “Click or tap the” Connect “menu in the lower left corner of the playback screen and scroll down to” Start a group session “, then share the invitation link with your guests or have them scan the Spotify code to attend the meeting. “
From there, both the host and the guests can pause, play, skip and select tracks in the queue. When a person makes a change, it is immediately displayed on all participating devices.
Pretty cute, isn’t it?
