Spotify launched two new apps on Thursday — Tastebuds and Fellody. Both of these apps will rely on your taste in music to find you romantic or platonic matches.
The apps analyze your favorite artists, the songs you listen to the most, and your playlists in order to match you up with your musical soulmate.
Tastebuds lets you filter potential matches by age, gender and location before you message the ones you find interesting.
With Felody, you can send a "flirt" to people who catch your eye. This sounds a lot like a "wink" or a "poke," which you might have used on other services or websites.
Sounds significantly simpler than most other "matchmaking" services, right?
I suppose the only major issue with these apps is the fact that some of us may have silly playlists which aren't necessarily a reflection of our actual taste in music.
I can already hear the shouts of protest from would-be love interests: "But I don't understand ... the app said you like Kanye, too!"
