Spotify are looking back at your past summers to build a playlist of your favourite tunes in the Summer season.
Spotify have introduced Your Summer Rewind a playlist of music based on your music listening in Summer. The playlist takes your listening history from Summers past to build up the perfect stream of songs for you.
By taking it’s personalised choices from what you’ve listened to in the past, during a specific season, the longer and more you’ve used Spotify the better Your Summer Rewind will be for you. Unfortunately for users who joined Spotify after June last year, they won’t have their own Summer Rewind to listen to – they will have to settle for Spotify’s other extensive playlists.
It’s also easier than ever to share and stream your friends’ favorite summer tracks. Users who opted-in to Spotify emails will receive their top three summer songs from their Summer Rewind playlist on a sharable card, perfect for sharing on Instagram or directly with friends. The card contains a unique Spotify Code that points to that user’s playlist, enabling fast and seamless sharing on social platforms. To listen to a friend’s playlist, simply open Spotify and click on the Camera icon next to the Search box to import a screenshot or take a photo of a friend’s Code.
Inspired by this trip down memory lane, Spotify has created a playlist, 50 Years of Songs of the Summer, based on Billboard data and Spotify streams, which features the most defining summer song every year from 1967-2017.
Ajay Kalia, Senior Product Owner for Personalized Programming at Spotify said “Music plays a huge role in people’s lives, and we’re always looking for ways to help connect songs – old and new – to moments in your life. ‘Your Summer Rewind’ is designed to spark nostalgia by reminding you of the songs that mattered to you from past summers.”
Spotify’s Your Summer is available now in 20 countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the U.S.
