It’s no secret that Spotify’s shared playlists are popular. Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, or even Snapchat, people keep sharing these things.

Spend a few minutes in the musical corner of Reddit, and you’re almost certain to find a shared Spotify playlist for virtually every type of mood or occasion. If you haven’t yet, check out our article on the Best Playlist Names to get you started with your search.

When you collaborate with friends to make a playlist, it can be difficult to share ideas and get everyone on the same page about what songs go, what mood they want the music in—and even how to name it once finished.

That’s why Spotify has launched Blend, a new feature that allows multiple users to create and edit playlists collaboratively. In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about what it is — and how you can start making your own blends on Spotify!

Try sharing your Spotify Blend playlist with any other streaming service using TuneMyMusic. 500 songs free of charge.

What Is Spotify Blend?

Spotify Blend is a collaborative playlist on Spotify that combines your music taste with the tastes of other users. You can discover new music and see how your taste compares to your friends or family members. The point? To have fun, of course.

Music has always been a unifying force. Spotify launched Blend to take listening with friends further than ever.

The goal was to create playlists that combine everyone’s taste in music into one ultimate playlist.

Spotify’s Blend lets you collaborate with up to 10 people while building your newest Spotify playlists.

We can already hear the whole squad jamming out on the next get-together.

To make the feature more popular and accessible, the company decided you don’t need to be a Spotify Premium member to use the Blend feature.

How Spotify Blend Works With Existing Features

Spotify Blend is still part of the Spotify ecosystem in a way that you can blend it with existing features and bend it in a way that fits you best. It’s still all about group activity, though. A few tips below.
