Spotify artists get notifications when you add them to your ‘questionable’ playlists

First, there’s this live chat service that lets every online customer service representative see what you’re typing in real-time. Now, Spotify artists get notifications when you add them to your playlists.

With these new developments in technology, we can’t help but ask ourselves: Is this a new “Black Mirror” episode?

In a Twitter post, user @geezmarty shares what he has learned about Spotify’s “new” feature.

Where you at #NotificationSquad??

Apparently, if you add a song to a playlist called, “Taylor Swift’s Long List of Ex-Lovers” then TayTay will find out. 

Okay, famous artists like Taylor Swift or Nicki Minaj who probably gets thousands of notifications every minute of the day won’t even notice this.

But artists with less than 1000 streams will surely see the notifications.

It’s confirmed.

People who replied to the tweet, shared the playlist they have created for their favorite artists and it’s hilarious. 

Like these playlists dedicated to “white people” and singers who “sound like that girl from asteroids.”

For men who want to be objects.

And for the opportunity to express your nationalism.

Someone also made a playlist to listen to at 3AM. 

Thank you, beautiful soul.

A list of songs that “try to pass off la la’s, na na’s, and doot do’s as legit lyrics.”

Lastly, a shower playlist because that’s the only time we can sing our hearts out!

In the end, it turns out this feature doesn’t even bother Spotify users. Oh well, it just means there are more opportunities to unleash your creativity!
