How to add the social aspect to Spotify
Today, most of these features have disappeared, much to the dismay of longtime subscribers. While you can recover some of them using workarounds, it’s clear that Spotify’s priorities have moved away from the social aspects of the platform.
If you aspire to ancient times, you may be in luck. A new application called Vybes is trying to restore the social aspect of Spotify. Read on to find out more.
What is Vybes for Spotify?
Vybes is an application that lets you enjoy Spotify music with your friends. You can share music with them, use their musical tastes to discover new music for yourself and listen to songs together at the same time.
Instead of using the path full of information, comments and tastes, Vybes encourages you to follow other people in their musical journey. You can see what your friends are listening to and tune in for a while.
For now, the app is in beta, but you can sign up and shop around. The full app is expected to go live in late 2018. The app is available on the web, Android and iOS.
Spotify integration with Last.fm
If you are a long time user of Last.fm, you will have tens of thousands of scrobbles linked to your account. Potentially, they go back a decade or more.
Note: to use Vybes features, you need a Spotify Premium account.
