Spotify is testing “token-enabled playlists” that allow NFT holders to connect their wallets and listen to curated music.
Tokens of Fluf, Moonbirds, Kingship, and Overlord can be used to access the service. During the testing period of three months, the community-curated playlists will be refreshed.
The Web3 gaming and media universe Overlord announced on Wednesday that holders of its lizard-themed Creepz NFT project can link their Web3 wallet to Spotify to hear the “Invasion” soundtrack curated by the community.
The Android pilot is only available in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Australia, and New Zealand, according to a tweet by Overlord.
Spotify confirmed through Twitter.
The NFT band KINGSHIP from Universal Music Group also issued a token-gated playlist for NFT holders that included Queen, Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, and Led Zeppelin.
Apoorv Lathey, the principal developer of NFTX, posted a screenshot from the pilot demonstrating how to access the KINGSHIP Spotify playlist.

A spokeswoman for Spotify said that the company “regularly conducts several tests to enhance our user experience.”
The representative remarked, “routinely conducts a number of tests in an effort to improve our user experience.”
Spotify did not share expansion plans for the feature.
Spotify has a greater web3 presence than other companies. It uses the most recent technologies in its system at all times. It has introduced metaverse news by adding a “stunningly realistic” robot DJ to its application. This artificial music queue generates songs based on your musical preferences and listening history.
The streaming platform with 489 million users has tried NFTs. In May 2022, Steve Aoki and The Wombats endorsed NFTs on their respective Spotify profiles.
Web3 music platforms spread the listening of music. Audius, a crypto-linked streaming service, pays consumers for using its app with AUDIO tokens, whilst Royal and anotherblock permit authors to sell music royalties as fractional NFTs.
