Spotify’s Pals Combine is like an auto-generated mixtape out of your buddies


Spotify has introduced one other new method to combine and match music on its service with your mates. Its new Pals Combine playlist sort goals to get you out of your consolation zone with tracks that your mates have been listening to. In contrast to Mix, one in all its different customized playlist varieties that merges a number of of your latest faves with some from a pal, Pals Combine is supposed to be like getting a giant mixtape filled with suggestions that your entire pals would provide you with.

This new playlist sort is obtainable globally to premium Spotify subscribers and to those that use its free providing, although it’s at the moment restricted to the iOS and desktop apps (I suppose Spotify determined that Android customers are friend-less). To be able to truly see a Pals Combine inside your Made For You hub on the Spotify dashboard, you’ll first have to have created three two-person Mix playlists.
