Spotify Blend is a fun way to share music with others and discover which artists and songs your friends and family listen to. Basically, it creates a shared playlist of your and another user’s favorite songs. It even comes with a “taste match” rating to compare how similar or unique your tastes are.

The blended playlist updates daily based on your listening habits, and you can add other friends to the Blend to keep the music fresh. Want to see how your music tastes match with your favorite artist? You can blend with them if they have an invite link.

Here is a list of artists you can currently Blend with on Spotify:

  • BTS
  • Charli XCX
  • JO1
  • Kacey Musgraves
  • Lauv
  • Megan Thee Stallion
  • BE:FIRST

How to use Spotify Blend

To Blend a Spotify playlist with a friend or family member, both users will need a Spotify account, but neither requires a Premium subscription. To create a Blend, you’ll need the mobile app on a smartphone or tablet, as the feature isn’t available yet on the desktop app. However, once created, you can listen to your Blend playlists on your desktop.

Open the mobile Spotify app and select the Search tab from the bottom bar to get started. Next, tap the Made for you icon.
