Spotify Wants Users To Record Vocal Reactions to Music Playlists

Spotify doesn’t just want to know what users think of music playlists — it wants to hear users’ opinions. The streaming platform is testing out an experimental feature that prompts listeners to submit feedback in the form of audio recordings.

A Reddit user in Vietnam was the first to spot the prompt. Screenshots show a playlist and a prompt asking the user, “So what do you think?” At the bottom of the screen is an audio button where users can record their vocal reactions.

Users can record their reaction in either one take or can pause and resume the recording to segment in multiple clips. Once they’re done recording, the audio clips can be edited, and users can add background music and tag the playlist. The finished playlist will be published as a podcast on the user’s page, presumably where their followers can also listen to it.

Spotify confirmed the feature to TechCrunch but provided no additional insight on what countries it’s currently available or when users can expect a wider rollout.

“At Spotify, we are always looking for ways to enhance our users’ experience on our platform, and we regularly test features that we believe will bring value to listeners and creators. We are currently running a limited test of in-app audio creation, but have no further details to share at this time,” Spotify said in a statement to TechCrunch.
