It is now the beginning of a new year, which indicates that it is time to look ahead into the future – more specifically if you are a Spotify user, exactly one year into the future. Just like every year, Spotify has come up with something interesting. The best part is that the suspense of this feature will continue to amaze you till January 2024.
A brand new tool on Spotify has just been introduced, and it’s called “Playlist in a Bottle.” With it, you can create a musical time capsule for your future self, and fill it with at least three songs. After you have completed the playlist, it will be unavailable until January 2024, providing you with a nostalgic look back at the music you were listening to at the beginning of 2023.
Up to January 31st, the Playlist in a Bottle feature will be accessible to users of both the free and premium versions of Spotify. It will be gone as soon as the month of February begins.

Before you do anything further, check to see that the Spotify app on your phone has the most recent update and that you are logged into it. This is the most basic requirement and you will not be able to enjoy this latest feature in 2023. So the best time to enjoy it is to start using Spotify today.

When you’ve decided on an item, you can then begin selecting the music that you want to keep for later use. As a means of assisting you in this endeavor, Spotify will present you with questions to answer, such as “A song you need to hear live in 2023,” or “A song you’re secretly infatuated with.”
To find the song you want, you need to tap the blank box that is located below the question. You also have the option to select Random to have Spotify select the song for you, or you can select New Question to view a different set of questions.
