Spotify Will Generate a Playlist For Your Dog!

Do you play music for your dog? The music streaming service Spotify just released a way to create an algorithmically generated playlist to enjoy with your dog—or cat, iguana, hamster or bird. 

Spotify conducted a survey of 5000 users worldwide who also have pets. 71 percent said they play music for their pets, and 8 out of 10 believe their pets like music. Interestingly, only around half said they think their pet likes the same type of music that they do. The survey also found almost one in five pet owners named their pet after a music artist or group. 

Here's how to use Spotify's new tool to create a personalized playlist for your pet.

1. Go to

2. Select your pet. Pick from a dog, cat, iguana, hamster or bird.

3. Choose the trait that best describes your pet's personality, such as relaxed, friendly, energetic or shy. Spotify will sync those choices with your own taste in music to create the playlist vibe.

4. Add your pet's name and a photo for the playlist cover. You’ll also receive a personalized share card.

5. Listen with your pup. You can share and compare your pet’s playlist using #SpotifyPets.
