Spotify Would Like You to Take a Survey So It Can Tune Things Better to Your Tastes
Spotify’s data boffins are always looking for ways to improve the music selections they serve up to subscribers. Algorithms are great, but sometimes you just gotta get in there and ask real humans real questions.
A new survey is interested in a number of behaviors. How often do you skip tracks? How long do you give a song before you skip it?
The two-minute questionnaire requires that you log into your Spotify account where you “help tune Spotify to your tastes by telling us how much you like 10 songs you’ve listened to.” From there, you’re taken through the tracks (Spotify remembers everything you’ve ever listened to) where you rate the 10 songs using emojis, which range from “never,” “nope” and “meh” to “like” and “love.”
Once you’re done rating at least ten songs, you’ll get a special “You’ve Got Great Taste” playlist that’s peppered with “some tracks you’ll love.”
