Spotify Rolls Out ‘Soundtrack Your Workout’ Playlist Generator for Exercising
Spotify is now offering to DJ your next workout session with a customized workout soundtrack.
The “Soundtrack Your Workout” feature is available now, and it entails answering a few questions already prepared for you, reads a new press release from the Swedish streaming giant. It’s a survey that asks you about your workout of choice, what the “mood” of that workout is, if you want music or podcasts (or both), how long you’ll be moving (15 minutes to two-plus hours), and more.
The result? A customized playlist put together for you and your workout in a matter of seconds.
A spokesperson confirmed that anyone with a Spotify account (free or Premium) can access Soundtrack Your Workout via mobile and desktop by going to spotify.com/workout — not through the app itself. However, once the playlist is created based on your answers, songs you’ve saved, and Spotify’s library of music, you’ll be taken to Spotify and can add onto that list if you so choose.
The feature also lets you name your playlist, and you’ll be able to listen to it whenever you’d like, and you can share it with others.
“Workout audio has always been a big focus for listeners on Spotify around the globe, and now more than ever, users are finding creative ways to stay active and healthy in this current climate,” Spotify’s global culture and trends communications expert, Shanon Cook, said in a statement. “Listeners have created more than 1 million workout playlists in the last two months, and for those who could use some inspiration, we hope that by offering fresh, personalized workout playlists, we’ll help boost motivation and keep spirits high.”
Of course, like any personalized playlist Spotify makes, the result is only as good as the data you’ve already fed the service. If you’ve allowed kids or other family members to use your account or don’t often use Spotify in favor of a different service, the playlist may not perfectly reflect your interests.
The new Soundtrack Your Workout destination is live today.
