Spotify Developed an Algorithm To Help You Create Personality-Based Playlists For Your Pet

Millions of people around the world get their tunes from Spotify, the music streaming service with every song you can imagine. It's great for discovering new music and making playlist of your favorite jams. But why should only humans get to enjoy it? What about our pets? Ever wonder if your pet approves of your taste in music or would prefer to skip the song you love so much? Spotify is trying to get you some answers with the help of a musicologist, David Teie.

    The music streaming service was inspired to create Pet Playlists after conducting a global online survey

    The survey showed that 71% of pet owners play music for their pets as a way to relieve their stress and that 8 in 10 pet owners believe their pets like music and even prefer certain genres of music — so why not give pets something that's just for them?

    As part of the process, Spotify consulted with musicologist David Teie, "who pioneered species-specific music and composed two albums of Music for Cats,"

    Teie helped Spotify learn the general likes and dislikes of different types of pets, like how dogs can find music in lower registers threatening.

    All you have to do is visit the Spotify's Pet Playlists website and answer a few simple questions about your pet: what type of pet they are, their energy level, their curiosity level, etc. Once you've given the algorithm the info, it will create a playlist catered to your pet's personality that you and your pet can instantly listen to and share.
