While Spotify is an incredible platform to discover underground artists and view your friends' activity, Spotify doesn't offer a robust social experience for meeting NEW music-listeners. With Hot&Cold, we aim to bridge diverse music styles.
Hot&Cold is a web app for Spotify users to meet other users who have the same music taste and polar opposite music tastes! Each user receives a HOT match: a Spotify user who shares similar music taste, and a COLD match: a user who has a very different music taste. For each match, the user is encouraged to browse the genres, songs, and artists their matches listen to, while learning about their own music style at the same time.
While we often bond with those who share similar music taste, there's beauty in sharing our differences too. That's how we learn about new artists and genres that shape us.
