Spotify’s group session beta allows users to remotely stream music or podcasts with friends. It is suitable for advanced users, no matter where users are, they can generate shareable links and listen to them with their friends. This new feature allows up to five people to listen at the same time. According to Spotify’s press release, this feature was implemented on July 28 and allows two to five people to live together. In addition, the Spotify desktop application and web client finally received independent Chromecast support.
The company said that the beta group conversation feature allows Spotify Premium users to generate a shareable link, which they can send through any messaging app to invite their friends to join the group. Users can also share scan codes with guests. All members of the group must be senior members. It is worth noting that this feature was first implemented in May, but it is only available when people are in the same space.
To start a group meeting:
1. Open Spotify and play the content
2. Click Connect to device icon
3. Click Start meeting under Start group meeting Options
4. Click Invite friends And share the link using the listed apps
5. Or click copy Link Choose another sharing method
In addition, according to the Spotify community forum, desktop applications and web clients have received independent support for Chromecast. Initially, desktop apps and web clients required iOS or Android apps to connect to Chromecast, but now they can do this independently.
This option is available on the desktop client, but not on the Windows application, which means the company is rolling out the feature in phases. We tried it on the web client and were able to play music through Google Home speakers.
