Spotify partners with dating sites Tastebuds.fm and Fellody to launch apps that help users find potential dates based on musical taste.
Two new apps have been launched on Spotify that aim to match you with potential dates based on what music you like. Fellody and Tastebuds.fm both integrate seamlessly with the popular music streaming service, scanning your music library to find your favorite artists, the songs you listen to the most, and your collection of playlists, to find other users with similar picks. You are then shown the profiles of the people who share the same taste, so you can see what you have in common.
Tastebuds.fm lets you filter by gender, age and location, and you can message matches in real-time or share songs with them. The app also allows users to share mixtapes with each other using Spotify’s in-built playlists.
Fellody lets you drag and drop playlists into the app and then finds potential dates with the highest match rate. You can get to know a match better by checking out their musical tastes, or send a “Flirt”, which is similar to the Facebook Poke button and notifies them that you are flirting with him or her.
