Spotify can spot all sorts of information about you
Your choice of music on Spotify can provide an insight into how you're feeling, or how you might want to feel, where you're from, how old you are, and what time of day you're listening, say international researchers. The study, which examined 765 million online music plays streamed by 1 million individuals across 51 countries, found younger people listened to more intense music, Latin Americans listened to more arousing music,and Asians listened to more relaxing music. Similar patterns of music consumption were found during the day (upbeat), compared to night (calming).
