Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services in the world. You can stream music for free with ads, but premium plans are also affordable. Spotify Wrapped is popular for rewinding a curated selection of the most played songs throughout the year.
Spotify has a lot of features to make your music experience more enjoyable. It has a decent equalizer and custom presets if you don’t want to manually adjust everything. You can easily categorize your music and sort by artist, upload date, etc. Spotify also has the best recommendation system and algorithms in the industry, giving you the best personalized playlists.
Spotify is also very popular for podcasts, and many presenters use Spotify as their presentation platform. There are also unique sections such as Repeat Rewind, Time Capsule, and On Repeat. There are endless ways to discover new music. There are top global and local charts, as well as curated playlists from artists.
Spotify shows an artist’s hottest and most popular songs, making it easy to discover the best music. We recently added new games to the app. A game similar to Nokia’s Snake game. If you think it’s confusing, it’s because it’s confusing. Spotify needs to pay attention to music and podcasts, not in-app games. However, the app added a new game, “Eat This Playlist”.
What is “eat this playlist”?
It doesn’t make much sense for Spotify to add this game to the app right now, but it does bring a touch of nostalgia to users. If you used to play this game a lot before, this app will bring back memories.of game concept It’s basically the same as Nokia’s Snake game.
Here, instead of eating snakes, you eat playlists. In snake game you have to guide the snake so that it doesn’t crash into the boundary or it eats its own body. If you touch the boundary line, you lose and the game is over. Eating parts of a snake reduces its size because it eats itself. To increase the size of your snake, you need to eat food around it.
In Spotify, the player (you) is the character that eats your playlist and grows in size. Instead of eating fruits and cakes, players eat playlists to grow in size. The objective is to consume as much of the playlist as possible, similar to the snake game objective of consuming as much food as possible. The rules are the same. If you touch the frame, you lose, and if you touch the character’s body, it shrinks.
Many people find the game entertaining, although it’s not entirely positively received. Using playlists to recreate retro games is wise. Some say it fits perfectly with the Spotify theme. Not only is it interactive and fun, it’s also very easy.
How do I get “Eat This Playlist”?
To use Spotify’s Eat This Playlist feature, follow these steps:
- Open the Spotify app and select one of your playlists. You don’t have to create one just for this. You can also use other people’s playlists. The first step is to select a playlist.
- After opening the playlist of your choice, scroll to the bottom of the page.
- You will see an option to “Eat this playlist”. Tap this option to start the game. You can play according to the rules above.
Note: Availability of this feature is not yet completely global. Not everyone has it and it’s still in the testing phase. Some users got it, but it will be rolled out gradually or gradually, so people will get it over time. Most people using the beta should have this feature. It will be available to everyone by the end of June.
Was it really necessary to add this new game to Spotify? But it could have tried to address some of the longstanding complaints about the app.
Many people dislike the Spotify-inspired home screen of this app, which may be due to the new UI design. This app has problems such as sign-in errors, slow servers, sync errors between devices, refusing to pause or play music naturally, refusing to play some songs, app taking too long to load, etc. There are also some bugs.
On iOS and iPadOS, the way to subscribe to Premium is still clunky and fairly unintuitive. Apple imposes a 30% tax (10% after 1 year) on all in-app purchases for apps from the App Store, but Spotify doesn’t want to pay that. To get around this, you have to pay a premium fee via your browser, which is rather annoying. They could have handled the situation better.
Many issues regarding the availability and licensing of popular music have yet to be resolved. Moreover, Spotify still uses the lossy audio format. If you are an audiophile, this is a big drawback. For those who want to stream music in lossless or high definition lossless formats, Spotify does not offer this.
Competing services such as Apple Music offer very high 24-bit and 192 KHz, or 24-bit and 48 KHz, high-definition lossless audio. Spotify’s 320kbps doesn’t match this sound quality, and it’s only a fraction of what a song’s instruments and vocals actually sound like. Spotify also doesn’t have a surround sound feature like Dolby Atmos yet.
You can’t add custom images to folders, you can’t get lyrics in the Apple TV app, and there’s no two-factor authentication. It also doesn’t show real-time lyrics where each word is highlighted as the song progresses.
With all these features pending, the decision to add this Eat This Playlist game is rather questionable. It’s strange that developers spend time, money and effort to design something that some niche users will try. Despite the mixed reaction, Spotify continues to experiment with her UI for the app to give users a new paint job, and it’s no exception.
