All you need is Shazam, because it'll save everything in Spotify.
Once you’re in any place where a song is playing, fire up Shazam to identify the song, tap the top-right “add” button, and instantly add that song to your serendipitous Spotify mixtape.
Go to any playlist, tap on the ellipses at the top of the screen, and select “Go To Radio.” That’ll create a playlist that shares some of the DNA of your own favorite set, and just might reintroduce you to deep cuts you forgot about.
With so many options, so many recommendation engines, and so many streaming services, it’s hard to pick where to start. If you’re using an i Phone, silencing those interruptions is easy: You flip the mute switch on the side of the phone, and incoming text messages, emails, and notifications won’t audibly interrupt your listening session.
Subscription streaming services like Spotify let you choose from an almost unlimited library of a few dozen million songs for a mere 10 bones a month. You can use the desktop version as a karaoke machine, keep tabs on what your friends are listening to, get a deal on pricing if you're a student or part of a family plan, and keep your listening sessions private. But there are other, lesser-known features you might fall in love with. First thing’s first: Nothing’s more annoying than reaching the best part of your favorite song and having the drop interrupted by an incoming notification.
If they’re on a mobile device or use a different service, they may not be able to hear that hot track you posted to Twitter.
A song-matching service called is built to fix that.
To do so, add your local files to a Spotify playlist on your computer.
Then, make sure your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi hotspot.
However, Android phones are so varied, there’s no one-size-fits-all way to keep pings and dings at bay.
Even if your phone is set to vibrate, you may still hear audio drop-outs when you receive a message or notification.
(If you'd rather collaborate in person and on the fly, tap the ellipses next to any song and select “Add to Up Next.”)Do you ever listen to an album and think, “this would be better if the songs were in a different order” or “that nine-minute noise experiment ruins the flow of the album” or “all the skits on this rap album are stupid”?
