Anyone in the group session can control playback. Which means you can all play, pause, skip songs and select songs for the queue. This can lead to arguments that you need to get in a separate messaging app because Spotify does not currently have a chat feature.
To start a Spotify group session with friends online:
- Open Spotify and start playing the song.
- Tap Connect menu in the lower left corner.
- Scroll down to Start a group session and tap it.
- Share an invitation link with friends online.
So far, up to five people can listen to Spotify in one group session. However, the feature is still in beta, and the music streaming service expects Group Session to evolve over time. So who knows, maybe one day you can invite everyone you know to listen to perky pop music.
