Spotify pranks users with bizarre “Discover Weekly” playlist
Spotify duped us all with this subtle April Fool’s Day prank that many people fell for.
If users attempted to listen to their “Discover Weekly” playlist on Monday, which usually suggests songs based on their listening patterns, they were probably a bit confused when the entire playlist was full of disco cover songs.
If you look closely at the cover art and title of the playlist, it actually reads “Your Discocover Weekly.” Well played, Spotify.
“We made you a mix of disco covers and covers of disco, but you can always boogie on over to your regular Discover Weekly. April Fools!” the description reads.
The streaming platform did just make your real “Discover Weekly” playlist a bit hard to find, but we definitely think the harmless prank is pretty hilarious.Spotify made a joke about the prank, asking followers how their “Discocover Weekly” was with a disco emoji.
Also, in case you didn’t know, Spotify is giving users access to Hulu for free. Find out how to do that here.
