A couple months ago, some Spotify users noticed a new playlist called Friends Weekly, a curation of songs that your friends on Spotify recently played. It now appears that Spotify is rolling the feature out to a larger group today, although the company confirms to The Verge that it’s still in testing.
Today, another user with Friends Weekly shared a different screencap with a separate group dedicated specifically to friends’ Discover Playlists. Although you can technically follow your friends’ Discover Playlists now (if they’ve made them public), you have to go to their page to find them. This row is a smaller test, and not available to everyone who has Friends Weekly.
so there’s a “your friends weekly” playlist that has stuff everybody has been listening to, and we also have access to other people’s discover weekly playlists now pic.twitter.com/nXi7u6nXDE— kim gorgeous (@bajablast_babe) May 9, 2018
These playlists appear to be an effort to help make Spotify an even more social experience and engage interest around its version of an activity feed. Plus, it’s probably hilarious to discover some of your friends’ worst (best) guilty pleasure songs.
