Spotify has a great deal of automation built in. A lot of that is for adding favorites and listening to the radio. Some of it is specific to your music, and some of it is specific to artists you follow. But the best part is that you can set up your own playlist, and you have the option to share only with your Spotify account, or just music you want to hear.
That said, you can’t automate your entire music collection for a wide variety of reasons, including but not limited to: Spotify’s own policy for the size of your songs, the fact that the service is still evolving, and the fact that you might have a friend who is a musician in your life, but doesn’t want to share your music with their Spotify account.
I really like the idea of automation on Spotify. It would be great if I could set up a playlist for a song that I liked, and then have it automatically play when I open Spotify. Unfortunately I can’t figure out how to do that, and I think there’s a good chance that Spotify will block it soon. If you just want to take your music with you, there’s no way to set up a playlist that will autoplay songs that you’ve played.
If you haven’t heard it yet, check out my YouTube channel and see the videos below. I would really love to hear it, but I really want to make sure that I am truly listening to it and not just having the ability to share a playlist.
Spotify has an API that allows you to upload a playlist, that way you can play music that youve uploaded to your account without having to have Spotify open in one hand and your phone in the other. In addition, there is a feature called Automated Playlists, which lets you set up a playlist that will play whenever you open Spotify. You cant do this just by setting up a playlist, though. Spotify still needs to be open in one hand and your phone in the other.
You can even play music and stream it to your phone if you like, but your phone just sits in your lap and won’t play it. Now you can just play whatever you want. Just be careful what you do with your phone.
The best part about this is it’s not like I could ever use Spotify again even if I did want to. It takes a lot of time to get to the point where you can get to your phone in the other hand and put music on it. And I’m not even talking about streaming, I’m talking about playing music and being able to see what others are listening to on your phone.
Another good example: We were recently told that my husband has a “self-diagnosis” on a couple of his phones, and I’m not sure if that’s what he’s going through. He mentioned that he’s been in a car accident, and was told to get his doctor to take him home to his wife. How can this be true? I know it’s a very difficult story to tell, but it makes it sound so real.
That may be the most disturbing thing about these automations is that they are really quite common. A lot of people have their phones programmed to automatically run their favorite site or play a few songs, so they don’t have to think about it. My husband has two of these on his phone, so I’m not worried.
There is a lot of technology and innovation that is making our lives easier these days. But there are also far too many things that are making it more difficult for our lives. For instance, spotify is one of those things. I use it often, but it has a lot of annoying settings that keep me from playing my favorite music. There are also quite a few sites that get your data and other info via a spotify app or a spotify-like service.
