Spotify Wants To Help You Date According To Your Musical Taste
Not only does Spotify want to provide the soundtrack to your love story, but they’re also willing to help you get a date.
According to New York Magazine, the popular music streaming service recently partnered with dating app Bumble, the only dating site that only allows women to initiate conversations with matches, for a new initiative which allows singles to be matched with partners who share similar taste in music.
According to Spotify, the new feature, which will be available in a few weeks, is intended “to help people make more meaningful connections with music taste in mind.”
A spokesperson for the streaming service explains:
“Rolling out over the next few weeks, users can connect their Spotify account to their Bumble profile to showcase the top artists they listen to most on Spotify. If you’re eager to learn more about the artist displayed (and get some bonus talking points for your potential connection), you can click on the artist which will take you to the artist page on Spotify. This integration not only gives Bumble users a peek into the music preferences of their potential connection, but also provides an easy conversation starter.”
In order to take advantage of this cool new feature, users will have to opt in by linking their Spotify account to their Bumble account.
