How to Use Group Session Shared-Queue Feature in Spotify



If you are using Spotify, you may have come across a new feature rolled out a few months ago called the Group Session. It is a shared-queue feature that allows users to share control of their music in their created group session.

In May this year, Spotify introduced the Group Session for users to listen to music together when they are in the same physical space. Through a QR Code shared with other Spotify Premium members, they can all have control over what to play, pause, stop, or add to their playlist.

Spotify created this feature to make it easier for its users to have music entertainment in their houses while spending time together. While the music streaming app also offers collaborative features, the Group Session is real-time.

By July, Spotify announced that its Group Sessions feature is innovating. Instead of the usual QR code, a join link can be used to invite other users. It means that even if your friends are miles away from you, they can join your Group Session by clicking your invite link.

How Stream Music with Spotify Group Sessions Remotely?

  1. To start using the feature, you will need to open your Spotify app.
  2. Look for any music you can play.
  3. At the bottom left corner, tap the Connect menu.
  4. Look for the Start a group session and tap the Start Session button.
  5. Next, tap the Invite Friends button. You can share it via your social media messenger, or you can copy the link and send it yourself.

Leave or End a Spotify Group Session

  1. In the group session, tap LEAVE SESSION. 
  2. If you started the group session, tap END SESSION.

Is Spotify Group Session Only For Premium Members?

Unfortunately, only Spotify Premium members can create and join a shared-queue music streaming party using the Group Session feature. The new party mode feature also only accommodates up to five users per session.
