Or would skip the song you are now blasting in your bedroom?
For instance: if you select the "cat" option, Spotify will ask you if your cat is energetic or relaxed; shy or friendly; curious or apathetic; and then ask you to upload a picture (an optional task) and your pet's name.
The news will be music to the ears of cats and dogs around the country as Spotify claims 71% of pet owners surveyed already play music for their pets. Additionally, nearly 50 percent of the pet owners surveyed think their furry friend prefers certain genres of music.
Spotify has also launched "pet playlists" for its entire global audience, giving users algorithmically curated song selections based on their tastes and their pet's character. Teie helped Spotify learn the general likes and dislikes of different types of pets, like how dogs can find music in lower registers threatening.
After all that work, you get to try it out. 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. Spotify will combine this information with your listening habits to create a Pet Playlist that's automatically added to your library, filled with about 30 songs.
While it's not clear what actual science goes into curating the playlists - it mostly appears to be a fun gimmick for Spotify customers - the science behind using music as a tool to keep your pets happy and calm is well-established.
