Spotify Launched Dog Playlists for Lonely Pets

by Luke Jones on

Last week, Spotify launched dog playlists that are designed to keep pets occupied when they are left home alone.

The music streaming giant announced the new feature following a UK-based study had some interesting results.

Everyone loves their pet and for most people a dog is another member of the family. Closeness and friendship underline dog ownership, which makes some aspects of having a pet heartbreaking. For example, everyday we leave our dog in the house alone.

Setting Up A Pet Playlist

In a blog post, Spotify explains how to set up a playlist for your pet:

Step 1: Pick your pet.

You can choose from a dog, cat, iguana, hamster, or bird.

Step 2: Tell us more about your pet. 

From relaxed vs. energetic to shy vs. friendly, select which trait most aligns with your pet’s personality—it will help us pick the playlist vibe.

Step 3: Add a name and photo. 

The playlist cover will feature your pet’s name and photo so you can keep the memory forever, and you’ll also receive a personalized share card!

Step 4: Listen and share.

Once complete, grab your iguana and get listening, dancing, or singing. Then, feel free to share (and compare) your card on social using #SpotifyPets.”
