Music streaming giant Spotify has released a new feature that allows users to visualise their monthly listening habits in the form of colourful pie charts.

The tool, called “Viral Music,” is designed to help users discover their favourite artists and tracks, as well as gain insight into their listening patterns.

To use the feature, Spotify users simply need to log in to their account and visit the Viral Music website. From there, they can select the month they want to view and generate a pie chart that breaks down their listening habits by artist, genre, and track. 

Users can see which artists fall under the designated genre by touching on a piece of the pie. They have discovered a variety of musical styles, from traditional rock, pop, k-pop, R&B, and hip-hop to the more experimental indietronica, baroque pop, permanent wave, cyberpunk, and slush wave.

The Spotify Pie Chart feature was invented by UCLA student Darren Huang, not by the Spotify platform. Spotify Pie highlights the artists you listen to the most in a given month and breaks down the categories that best suit your taste based on information from your Spotify profile.

According to Spotify, the feature is designed to be fun and engaging, allowing users to easily explore their musical tastes and discover new favourites.

“We’re always looking for new ways to help our users discover and enjoy music,” said a spokesperson for Spotify. “With Viral Music, we’re providing a fun and interactive way for users to explore their listening habits and discover new music they might not have otherwise found.”

The tool has already received positive feedback from users, with many praising its ease of use and colourful design.

While the feature is currently only available to Spotify users, the company says it may expand the tool to other platforms in the future.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our services, and Viral Music is just one example of that,” said the spokesperson. “We’re excited to see how users respond to the feature and will continue to explore new ways to help our users discover and enjoy music.”
