Spotify Launches Token-Enabled Playlist
Online music streamer Spotify has announced the launch of a new feature called token-enabled playlists. This pilot is available to Android users in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. It allows users who own Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) to link their wallets and listen to music that has been handpicked for them by participating communities.
Communities Accessing Service
The trial phase of this service will last for three months during which time the curated playlists will be continuously updated. The Fluf, Moonbirds, Kingship, and Overlord communities are able to access this service using a unique URL with tokens they possess.
Overlord x @Spotify have been selected as one of Spotify’s partners in this new pilot project exclusive only to holders of tokens. Members of the Overlord community owning Creepz NFTs may access its community-curated „Invasion“ soundtrack by connecting their Web3 wallets to Spotify.
The NFT band Kingship from Universal Music Group also said it had developed a token-gated playlist for token owners featuring songs by artists such as Queen, Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg and Led Zeppelin. Members accessing this playlist must connect their Metamask, Trust Wallet, Rainbow Ledger Live or Zerion wallet in order to do so.
Spotify Pilot Testing
A representative from Spotify stated that they often test different features in an attempt to enhance customer experience – some tests might even pave the way for future implementations on the platform as part of its commitment towards technological advancement within the music industry
