Spotify: Five plugins to get more out of the music platform | Audio and Video

Spotify offers a variety of features for users, such as artist show schedule, timer and collaborative playlists, but some functions are still lacking in the music streaming platform. Plugins and add-ons are able to add extra services to the site, such as discovering a singer's performance setlist or checking your account's auditing data without waiting for the end of the year to access Spotify Wrapped.

1. Spotify Statistics (spotifystatistics)

The Spotify Statistics website shows users which songs and artists are the most listened to by the account, according to specific months or even throughout the user's activity period. Data is available after logging in to the streaming service. This requires authorizing access to the Spotify Statistics Spotify account, which can be done via Facebook login or registration at spotifystatistics.

There is another application for Spotify which is also called Festify, but its function is quite different from the one that makes party playlists. This app analyzes your Spotify listening history and creates a custom poster for a fictitious Coachella, Rock in Rio or Lollapalooza music festival. The idea is to show what the dream event would be like based on the music taste of each user.

Fresh Faces is for those who want to find out about Spotify. The site has a search engine that only searches for artists whose first album is less than two weeks old available on the music platform. After the search is completed, the site displays a grid with the cover of the new albums found. By clicking on each icon, you can hear 30 seconds of music. If you like and want to hear everything, just click the arrow that appears in the top corner of each photo to be immediately directed to Spotify.
