The new year has just started but Spotify has already rolled out its first in-app experience to let users have fun. Spotify is rolling out “Playlist in a Bottle” which lets users create their time capsule for 2024. Learn how to make your time capsule with Spotify’s latest feature.
This new feature allows users to pick some songs based on their mood, put them into a virtual bottle, and throw it away to find them when the next year arrives. It’ll help users remember what were they listening to when the last year started.
2022 was the year of Spotify. It launched a number of interactive in-app experiences like GRWM, Icebergify, Instafest, etc, followed by the incredible yearly Wrapped which was shared heavily on social media.
Spotify Playlist in a Bottle: What is it?
Spotify Playlist in a Bottle is the music streaming service’s time-limited in-app experience that lets users create their musical time capsule for 2024. You can pick songs based on a number of prompts depicting your mood and create a playlist.
After that, you can seal it off in a virtual bottle or another piece and apply a digital seal on it. When the next year arrives, you can find and open it to remember what songs were you listening to when the last year began.
You will provide song titles as answers to three or more questions like “A song you’re going to kiss someone to this year,” “A song that reminds you of your favorite person,” “A song you need to hear live in 2023,” etc. This will create your tracklist for the capsule.
