What is Spotify for Pets?

Do you leave your dog or cat home alone and need some tunes to keep them pacified? Take a look at Spotify's popular pet playlist feature, Spotify for Pets.

What is Spotify for Pets?

Music is known as the universal language, but just how far that reach extends within the animal kingdom is largely up for debate. Does your beagle get down to Beethoven while your cat can't get enough of Cardi B? Unsurprisingly, research has shown that pets do in fact react positively to music, depending on the genre. If you're a music-loving pet owner, you likely enjoy a large library of carefully curated Spotify playlists for yourself. Why shouldn't your pet? Enter: Spotify's pet playlists!

Spotify's Pet Playlists

A few years ago, Spotify unveiled a creative solution for pet parents who needed to leave their pets at home but wanted to add a little ambiance for their couch-bound friends. This feature was aptly named Spotify for Pets: "...a playlist for your pet based on the music you love".

From there, you'll enter some temperament details about your pet. For example, are they relaxed or energetic - curious or apathetic? Finally, Spotify's algorithm combs through your playlists, syncs your pet's behavior with your own musical taste, and voila: your companion is ready to jam!
