Spotify is arguably one of the world’s favorite music applications. The downloads and number of streams offer enough evidence for the claim. Like other popular apps, Spotify understands your preferences to push music that likely matches your music taste. But do you know you can also check your Facebook friend’s music tastes and activity on the platform?
This feature can come in handy when you like a friend’s music taste. It can help you listen to your friends’ favorite bangers on the go with Spectrum Mobile or some other mobile network. However, the feature is about to come out on mobile devices, and it first came out on the desktop app. In this blog, you can see how to connect Spotify with Facebook and other apps.
Your Friend’s Activity on Spotify
Viewing your friend’s activity on Spotify is an underrated and under-discovered gem of a feature. There are features on Spotify that help you create a kind of music taste profile. You can connect it to dating platforms like Tinder and connect with it with your Facebook too. This way, you can better display your music preference and hang out with people with similar music tastes. Or maybe discover new genres thanks to them.
Some of you may prefer taking music with them everywhere on the phone, while others may prefer listening on the desktop. So, it is best to explain the process of connecting to Facebook in either case. You can take a similar approach to connect other apps to Spotify.
