You and your best friend might be super compatible, but how compatible is your taste in music? Spotify is here to put that to the test with its feature called Spotify Blend. The personalized shared playlist feature, originally released in August 2021, has "Taste Match Scores" where two users who create a Blend will get a score that shows how similar or different their music-listening preferences are. Whether you're more of an Olivia Rodrigo fan or you can't get enough Drake, you'll be able to see just how much you have in common with your friend with Spotify Blend. You'll also be able to see the specific song that brings you both together, whether it's "Drivers License," "Butter," or something in between. Spotify Premium listeners can see which user's listening preferences contributed to the songs on the playlist, meaning if the playlist is really good, you both have your music taste to thank. Wondering how to test your compatibility and try Blend? Follow these easy steps:
How to Use Spotify Blend
- Tap "Create Blend" in the "Made For You" hub within the Spotify App, under the "Search" tab.
- Then, hit "Invite" to select the friend that you want to join your Blend.
- Once your friend accepts, Spotify will create a playlist for the two of you filled with songs that combine your listening preferences and tastes. Rock on!
How to Use Spotify Wrapped: Blend
Following the release of Spotify Wrapped 2021, the team tapped into its own Spotify Blend feature to offer users the chance to create a Blend with a friend based on your Spotify Wrapped 2021 playlists. Under the "Search" tab, you can navigate to the Spotify Wrapped 2021 hub, where you'll see a module titled "2021 Wrapped: Blend." From there, you can tap "Create Blend" for a fun, end-of-year playlist to listen to on repeat.
