Soon Spotify’s smartphone app will also show what your friends are listening to


Spotify is working on a new feature for app users that will allow them to see what music their friends are currently listening to. At the moment the function is still in the testing phase, tell Spotify Tech Crunch

Spotify for desktop has had an option called “Friends Activity” for much longer. This overview shows the songs and playlists your friends are currently listening to. For friends who are not active at the time, the last song played can be seen.

Spotify’s smartphone app doesn’t have this feature yet, but it’s in the works. The music service is working on an option called “Community”.

It will probably be a separate page in the app. A horizontal row will appear at the top, containing playlists that have been recently updated. Below is a list of friends and the songs they listen to.

It is not yet known when the feature will be added to Spotify. In 2019, the music service forum was already calling for “Friends activity” on the smartphone. Then Spotify responded by saying the idea ended up on the list “not now”. “We don’t have any immediate plans to start this,” said the company, which has now changed its mind.
