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


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

Spotify for desktop has long included the Friends Activity option. 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 developing an option called Community.

It will probably be a separate page in the app. At the top is a horizontal row with recently updated playlists. Below is a list of friends and the songs they are listening to.

It is not yet known when the feature will be added to Spotify. In 2019, on the forum of the music service, we were already asking for Activity of friends for smartphones. Then Spotify said the idea landed on the slate for later. “We have no immediate plans to start with this,” said the company, which has since changed its mind.
