Spotify is working on a social listening tool on its music streaming app. This upcoming update was found by a software engineer looking through files in the Android app-- it was then posted to Twitter. The new feature will have a 'Connect With Friends' button for users to press, then after scanning a QR code a 'Now Listening' section will be available, this section is a shared feed.
The social listening feature is only available to employees of the music streaming company at this time. Spotify has not confirmed the new feature or set a release date. This new feature would build on the existing social aspects of the Spotify app. Where previously users shared music through links or following another user's playlist, the social listening tool would allow for a shared simultaneous experience.
