Taking email auto-response messages to the next level, the music streaming service can craft custom vacation playlists based on location

The standard out-of-office message may be informative, but it's also a tad dull. Music streaming service Spotify has developed a way to add a bit of music to the typical automatic response with their newest feature: OOO.

OOO creates a playlist specifically tailored to where you're going and for what purpose. After entering a location, users are given the option to indicate whether the trip is for business or pleasure, as well as if the time off is more focused on relaxation, adventure, or partying. From there, Spotify creates a 25-song playlist to match your mood with songs from your destination. The service also drafts a text with a link to the playlist that you can use as your email auto-response message so that others can access the playlist.
