There’s nothing like enjoying your favorite playlist or podcast with friends and loved ones. That’s why Spotify launched the firstbeta version of Group Session back in May. At launch, this evolving feature allowed groups of Premium users to share control of their listening sessions with others in real time. It even offered shared opportunities for collaboration among all the listeners. And we didn’t stop there.

In our latest innovation, we’re taking Group Session one step further with brand-new functionality that allows Spotify Premium users around the world to tune into the same playlist or podcast simultaneously. So no matter the distance—whethersix feet apart ora thousand miles away—you and the members of your squad can now each listen to the same content at the same time on your own devices (as well as control playback). Groups of two to five people can use this feature at once by sharing a “join” link via messaging apps or social media with each other.
