NEW GROUP SESSION FEATURE FOR LISTENING PARTIES On SPOTIFY
Written by Luca Zed on May 15, 2020
Group Session allows the Spotify’s Premium users to share control over the music within the same physical space, up to 100 individuals. This allows for listening parties and exploration of musical interests within friend groups.
Here you are the steps to use this feature:
First, the host must tap the Connect menu located in the bottom left corner of their Play screen. Then, hosts will be able to invite their guests via scannable code. Guests join by scanning the code. Once everyone is linked in the group mode, all users will be able access controls including play, pause, skip, etc. Users can also collaborate on their group playlist.
This new feature is ideal for families, roommates, and other close living situations. In the future, Spotify may extend Group Session for people not sharing the same space.
Group Session is available now on Spotify Premium.
