Spotify tests new ‘Friends Weekly’ playlist comprised of your friends’ favorite songs
Some Spotify listeners might have noticed a new weekly playlist feature appear on their apps.
Although the playlist function remains in testing stages, Spotify has created “Friends Weekly,” a playlist featuring song selections curated from your friends’ recently played Spotify tracks, available to a group of subscribers. The feature was originally perceptible to a smaller number of Spotify users months prior, but has since been extended to more listeners.
Further incentivizing engagement is Spotify’s addition of a separate assortment of playlists titled “Friends’ Discover Weekly,” which will allow streamers to take a peek at the songs that make up their Spotify friends’ Discover Weekly playlists.
Spotify users currently have the capability to follow their friends’ Discover Weekly playlists —assuming that the given friend has made the playlist public — but will now be able to browse their friends’ Discover Playlists without needing to search for that specific friend. Like “Friends Weekly,” the row of “Friends’ Discover Weekly” playlists is also in developmental stages and will remain available to a select number of Spotify users, for now.
