Developer and reverse engineering specialist Jane Manchun Wong discovered the upcoming feature. She found code on https:/open.spotify.com/tastebuds to identify the feature embedded in the app and a non-functional landing page for the feature.
Wong said a little more about what she had found to TechCrunch.
This is identical to the playlists found in Apple Music’s For You tab (scroll down the playlists to find it).
Spotify has friend features in the desktop app but not in the mobile one, as TechCrunch reports.
It also experimented with other social features, but still did not launch them.
When Spotify Tastebuds releases, the company is likely to take the same approach as Apple Music when seeking your permission before a friend can follow you.
If you want to see what you’ve been listening to year round, Apple Music Replay and Spotify Wrapped will let you see the music you’ve enjoyed the most.
