Spotify playlists are a big part of the music streaming experience. With the “Blend” feature, you and a friend can mix your music into an auto-compiled playlist. It’s an even more personal way to share music with others. This is how the Blend function works in Spotify.

A Blend playlist can only be created using the mobile app on an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet. To get started, open the Spotify app and tap the “Only You” card on the “Search” tab.
Then scroll down to the ‘Made for Two’ section and select ‘Create a Blend’.
On the next screen, tap the “Invite” button.
Your device’s Share menu will appear, allowing you to select the method you want to invite someone to. The other person has to open the link on their phone or tablet.
Note: Invitation links are only good once. Once someone uses the invitation to join your Blend, the link will expire and you’ll need to create a new one to create another Blend.
When the other person joins, a playlist is automatically created with the title “Person 1 + your username”. Songs in the playlist are labeled according to the person they come from in the form of a small avatar icon on the right side of the screen.
Blend playlists are kept in the “Just You” section, but you can “follow” them just like any other playlist to move them to your library. They can also be downloaded for offline listening.
That is it! This is a fun way to share music with friends and family. You may even discover new hidden gems from others.
