Spotify Has Revealed New Playlist For Pets Feature

Spotify Has Revealed New Playlist For Pets Feature

Filed right under 'wholesome news of the day', Spotify has revealed a new feature that allows you to make a playlist that's personalised for you and your pet.

Spotify for Pets uses an algorithm, as well as some basic information about your pet, to create the perfect playlist that you can listen to together.

The music streaming service has found that one in five pet owners named their fur baby with either an artist or genre of music in mind, with the top five names including Bob Marley, Elvis, Freddie Mercury, Bowie and Ozzy.

Spotify also found that 70 percent of humans think about the 'emotional wellness' of their pets daily - that pang of guilt when you leave for work and leave them on their own for the day definitely counts towards that.

And eight in ten people believe that their pets like music and 55 percent of people think their pet likes the same music as they do.

But it's not a one way thing - 84 percent of pet owners believe that their little mates 'complete their life', while 53 percent would pick their pet over their partner if they had to. I think that's fair enough

At the moment, this is only available to parents of dogs, cats, iguanas, hamsters or birds - it would be cruel to subject your pet to the wrong playlist.

Then you answer a few simple questions about your pet's personality. It asks things like whether they are relaxed or energetic, shy or friendly - all in the name of finding the perfect playlist for your pet.

Next you add a personal touch, with their name and photo. The cover is then a memory that you can cherish forever. And of course, did you even make a pet playlist unless you share it on social media? I think not.


The website explains: "There is something uniquely special about the relationship we humans have with our pets - it's one filled with unconditional love, licks, snuggles, and cuddles.

"It's hard to put into words the emotion these animals give us - other than pure happiness. So it's only natural that we want to make them feel good, too, and many pet owners believe they do exactly that with music."

Have a go at it here.
