Spotify has announced a new feature called Jam, which allows friends in a group to collaborate and choose real-time songs to play. This feature can be suitable for parties where multiple people are present.
You could say that Jam is an upgraded version of Group Session and different from Blend, which is a shared playlist with friends. It combines Spotify’s social system with song selection tools for each user, recommending songs to play together at the party based on their listening preferences.
To start using Jam, you need to be a premium user. Begin by selecting a song or playlist, then press the speaker button at the bottom and choose “Start a Jam.” Other Spotify users on the same Wi-Fi network can join in, or you can invite others through Bluetooth, QR codes, or sharing links.
Spotify has stated that this feature is now available to users worldwide, but it requires updating the app to the latest version.
TLDR: Spotify introduces Jam, a feature that allows friends to collaboratively select real-time music for parties. It is an upgrade from Group Session and differs from Blend by utilizing both the social system and personalized song selection tools. Jam is available to Spotify premium users globally after updating to the latest version of the app.
