Songs can help you answer some of life’s toughest questions and even keep you afloat. But what if it could also answer questions, like “What should I have for lunch?” or “Should I go to clown school?” That is now possible with Spotify’s latest interactive experience called Song Psychic. The feature is designed to guide you through life’s “little mysteries” with the help of cosmic guidance and music. Interested? Here is a guide to tell you more about Song Psychic and how to use it on Spotify.

What is Song Psychic on Spotify?

Song Psychic is an in-app interactive experience where you can ask pre-selected questions. These can be about your life, something trivial, or just random stuff. It will be answered in the form of a song suggestion. Spotify announced this feature on February 29, and it’s available for both free and Premium plan subscribers.

What makes it interesting is the retro psychedelic crystal ball-style animation and sound that will surely remind you of the old Scooby-Doo cartoon. It is a fun way to pass some time if you feel silly. But it goes without saying not to take any of its suggestions seriously.

According to the music streaming platform, “Spotify listeners have created nearly 250,000 psychic-related playlists globally on Spotify.” This seems to be the inspiration for this feature.

How to Use Song Psychic on Spotify

Song Psychic should pop up randomly when you open the Spotify app. But if you haven’t been fortunate enough, here are the steps to find and use it.

  1. Open the Spotify app and tap on the Search icon in the bottom toolbar.
  2. Here, tap on the search bar and type “Song Psychic”.
  3. From the search results, tap on the Song Psychic suggestion labeled as Genre.
Search for Spotify Song Psychic and start it
  1. Tap on Get Started to begin the interactive experience.
  2. Pick one category of your choosing then press the option, Tap to type.
  1. This will reveal a list of questions. Select the one you wish to ask. You can also type keywords to search for questions based on the searched words. (Note: You cannot ask your own questions in this section.) When you’re done selecting a question, tap on Submit.
  2. Now wait as Spotify finds a suitable track to reply to your query.
  3. To play the suggested song, press Play on Spotify.
  1. If you don’t like the suggestion, tap on the replay icon to have Spotify use its psychic powers again and find you a new track.
  1. Or, you can tap the share icon to send your friends a snippet of the recommended song.

In my honest opinion, I think it is just a goofy feature that I would probably try out with my friends once and then forget about it completely. But I know this and features like Spotify Jam have their audience on the platform who enjoy these additions. Even though I am not a fan of it, I will still say that it was a fresh experience, and you should try it out if you have some time to kill.
