The current equivalent of sitting in front of your iMac with your best friend to thoroughly develop the best summer playlist on iTunes is to create a collaborative playlist on Spotify from the comfort of your sofa; while your friend touches her from her bed on the other side of the city. You no longer have to have the disorders of having to move: we explain how to create a collaborative list in Spotify.
That's right, you don't even have to be in the same room with your friend to select the same playlist. You can use your computer, phone or tablet to add, reorganize and delete songs, and your friends or followers can do the same from where they are. There is also no limit on how many people can contribute to a list.
Best of all, this feature does not need a Premium subscription to create or participate in a collaborative playlist; This option is available to Spotify Free and Spotify Premium members alike. However, users with free membership cannot participate in the edition from a mobile device: they need to use a computer.
It is also worth noting that customers with a free subscription to Spotify will find the same intrusive ads they will normally hear while listening to a collaborative playlist, and still won't have the option to skip whenever they want. You give yourself to random play for free or Premium subscription.
