Spotify Tap – a handy new feature for music lovers

Listening to music on the go has come a long way from cassettes and headphones. Having to change your tape when you wanted something different. Now streaming stores make the process a lot easier because you can pick and choose what you want to listen to and when. It’s all at the click of a button. Spotify have now introduced their Tap feature which makes resuming where you left off even easier.

Spotify have released a new feature which allows you to pick up where you left off. When Bluetooth headphones first came about they were revolutionary, but over time certain features about them have become a pain. The process usually involves turning your headphones on, connecting your phone up and then searching for the tracks you want. It’s not a terrible process, but Spotify have found a way to streamline it. If it makes our lives easier, we’re all for it.

It’s been announced that instead of having to get your phone out of your pocket or bag, you’ll be able to go to your next session with just a tap. Your phone can stay exactly where it is, simply put on your headphones and tap your phone to start where you left off. If that music choice isn’t for you, you can tap again, and it will play other recommendations for you.

Spotify Tap is compatible with many headphones and earbuds – Samsung, Microsoft Surface, Bose, Skullcandy, and Jabra. They’ll be adding more to this list later on in the year and throughout 2022. Their Spotify Explore page is recommended to help you figure out the right headphones for you.

There are some brands that will connect straight away with Spotify Tap, however others you might need to pair them up. You can do that by following Spotify’s guide below:

  1. Download the companion app for your headphones or earbuds, then open the app and navigate to settings to configure the shortcut button.
  2. Select “Spotify Tap.”
  3. Out of the app, simply tap the headphone shortcut button and Spotify will immediately resume from where you last left off. 

We suggest checking out Spotify’s For The Record page where they list their latest updates. It’s part of their newsroom feature. All Spotify Tap features will be listed there, and it will be the first place that new updates are announced.
