All the Other Things You Can Do on Spotify Aside From Listening to Music

It's not only a great streaming service, but also a good meditation tool!

For many of us, Spotify has become a primary streaming platform for music. But aside from listening to songs and podcasts, there's a lot more you can do on the app. If you head to the "Search" option of Spotify, you'll find a bunch of other things to do on the app you probably never knew you could do.

Here are other features you can check out on Spotify:

Listen to ASMR

There's an entire section on Spotify that's dedicated to ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or tingles). You can find ASMR sounds of writing on paper, folding fabric, and even falling rain—basically white noise, for the newbies out there.

Learn a new language

If you scroll to the bottom of the "Search" section of the app, you'll find the subsection "Word" with playlists on tutorials of different languages. Brush up on your Spanish, French, German, and other languages while you're on the app.


Finish an entire audiobook

In the very same section, you'll find various audiobooks of classic literary pieces like The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Play the audiobook in the background as you multi-task and get a good refresher on classic literature.

Find concert tickets

There's also a feature under "Concerts" that compiles all the music events happening within your vicinity on certain dates. Tap or click on one that interests you, tap on "Find Tickets," and it'll redirect you to a third-party website that provides access to tickets of your chosen concert.

Practice meditation

If you're into finding Zen in the coming new year, there's a category under "Wellness" rightfully called "Meditation" where you can play tranquil sounds as you ruminate and find your inner peace. There's also a playlist for guided meditation in case you're new at this and need some gentle guidance. They've even partnered up with the meditation app Headspace so you can access all sorts of meditation guides straight from Spotify.
