Spotify has launched Jam, a personalized, real-time listening session for any group to tune in together to bring music lovers over a shared love of music and to make listening together better than ever before.

Jam builds on Spotify’s popular social features such as Blend and Collaborative Playlists, and combines them with its personalization technology to make listening with your squad better than ever. With Jam, a whole group can get in on the fun with shared queue control, recommendations tailored to the group, and the ability to see who’s added which track. 

Here’s how it works:

  • To start your Jam, a Premium user selects a playlist or song to play. Then, you’ll see a “Start a Jam” button by clicking the Connect button at the bottom of your screen or by hitting the three dot menu within your favorite playlist, album or song.
  • You can also select a device to play on, whether that’s your phone or speaker. Those in your household on your shared WiFi will also be prompted to join into the Jam. 
  • You can then invite your squad (Premium or Free users) in one of three ways:
  1. Turn on Bluetooth, then tap your phones together
  2. Have your friends scan the QR code on your host screen
  3. Hit “share” to send the link through social, text, SMS, and more
  • Everyone in the Jam can add songs to the queue, see who added which song, and receive recommendations, all from their own devices. 
  • The host also has the ability to determine who’s in the Jam, change the order of the tracks, or remove a song that doesn’t fit the vibe.
    • The host can also turn on “Guest controls” to allow everyone in the session to remove or change the order of the tracks. When “Guest controls” are turned off, only the host can rearrange the queue. 

Jam is available for all Premium and Free Spotify users globally.
