MUSIC streaming service Spotify has been messaging all your friends to ask what you have been up to.
Under new privacy terms, Spotify can gather information about its users so it can ‘expose their lies on Facebook’ and send them whiny emails at three in the morning.
Nikki Hollis said: “I was listening to some 5 Seconds Of Summer – don’t judge me – and it suddenly flashed up a message asking me whether I’d been flirting with Apple music.
“It said it had been chatting with my friend Alice who just happened to mention it, before stressing that it wasn’t ‘disappointed or angry, just a bit surprised’.
Hollis added: “I was then locked into two hours of multiple choice questions about whether I thought its interface looked frumpy. In the end I had to recommend three friends to a trial period just to calm it down.”
Meanwhile, users have claimed that Spotify has been asking them why they did not listen to any music during the time they normally commute to work.
Martin Bishop: “It’s been posting photos of me wearing headphones. Should I phone the police?”
