  • You don't need Spotify to listen in on your voice to tailor your music recommendations, but Spotify is more than happy to make a profit selling your info. The music recommendation thing is just an excuse.

  • A few years ago I studied for a music test and whilst talking to my friend about the songs I had my Spotify open. After I went and made a playlist of all the songs and when I checked the "recommended songs" tab, all songs we talked about showed up. I think this "patent" has been used for a while already. Just wanted to share this in case anyone has had the same experience with Spotify listening way before this announcement.

  • Dont get it twisted. Spotify's main purpose isnt to be a "giant music library" though is it? That's like saying Facebook is just a way for you to connect with friends and share pictures. They are all data harvesting in one way or another.

  • I don't understand the point of this video. Call me ignorant, but aren't big tech companies have been doing this for years? For example, using Google products is just you volunteering to give them valuable data anyway. For a person like Fantano, he should've expected that a powerful corpo that controls the music marketplace is going to harvest data sooner or later, being the woke person that he is.

Amazon sees what you buy and then they recommend you stuff you might like so you spend more money. But I’m already paying for Spotify, so why the heck would they NEED to do this? I’m not spending more money on them when they show me more music lol
