Spotify Lets You Mix Your Music and Dating Together

By Jon Partridge on at

Looking for love? An intense music fan? Well, now you can mix those two together, as today marks the launch of two new Spotify apps: Tastebuds and Fellody, both of which aim to match you up with potential romantic partners based on your musical tastes, or lack there of.

Both services have already been around for a little bit, with Tastebuds originally piggy-backing on musical-social-networking-giant Last.fm, while Fellody straight-fetched a bunch of information from your media player's library. But today marks a new note for those Spotify users who are looking for romance. Both apps integrate seamlessly with Spotify, pulling down your favourite artists; most listened to tracks, and your playlists to help you find that special someone.

Tastebuds matches you with a potential partner based on the artists you've listened to the most, as well as your collection of playlists. You can then filter by gender, age and location if you're really picky, and you can also message matches in real-time, sharing playlists and songs with them directly. Fellody, on the other hand, simply lets you drag and drop playlists into the app, it then finds friends and potential dates with the highest match rate. Send a 'flirt' if you feel inclined, or get to know a match better by checking out their musical tastes.

So if you're a big Spotify user and Carly Rae Jepsen fan, you just might find that special person to 'call you, maybe'. [Spotify; Tastebuds.fm, Fellody.com]
