Spotify is getting a bit more social, although its new ‘Group Sessions’ feature requires people to be in the same place. That means for now it’ll mainly be handy for families quarantining at home, but in time could also be used in offices and other shared spaces.

What is it? Essentially a shared queue that multiple people can add songs to and control the running order, via a scannable code on the host’s smartphone. The new feature was first spotted in testing nearly a year ago.

In other Spotify news, the streaming service has officially announced its licensing deal with Indian music company Saregama in India. That’ll bring more than 100k additional tracks to Spotify’s catalogue there, with the two companies having recently settled a lawsuit filed by Saregama against Spotify last year.
