If you’re a Spotify user, you know that you can “like” specific songs, which is a handy way of bookmarking your favourites and new discoveries. That’s fine, but it’s not a very granular way of filtering your preferences.
That’s now changed. Spotify’s mobile app (at first, anyway) will soon allow for anyone with at least 30 “liked” songs to assign additional attributes. For example, you’ll be able to classify songs by genre and mood.
That means if you’re in the mood for, say, metal, all the “liked” songs in that category, a playlist can be created instantly. Same thing if you looking for favourite that will pump you up or console you when you’re sad.
The new feature should be available in the coming weeks, starting with Canada, the US, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
