When Spotify launched its app platform, there were questions as to whether it could come up with enough ideas to justify its existence. After you’ve done review, lyrics and ticket-selling apps, where do you go from there? The answer is obvious: dating. Can your playlists find you Mr or Mrs right?
Two new apps have hit Spotify, both boasting of their ability to find you a soul mate based on what you listen to. Tastebuds and Fellody are both fine-tuned to bring you matches based on your audio-listenings, but in slightly different ways.
Tastebuds will collate your most listened-to artists or songs to bring you a range of results which can then be filtered by age or location. You can then send your would-be partners messages or songs. Fellody, meanwhile, allows you to drag and drop whole playlists into its engine, and it’ll spit out matches based on that data.
“Your taste in music is one of the most common topics of conversation when meeting someone, whether they are a date or just a new friend,” says Spotify’s app platform director Sten Garmark. “It’s hugely important to have compatible tastes. Harmony on Spotify might just be a great way to find new friends or start a new relationship!”
