How to Create a Custom Workout Playlist on Spotify

There might have been some drastic changes to your workout routines during this lockdown phase, and Spotify seems to take a note of the same. It has launched a new interactive web session using which you could customize your workout playlist. Answering questions across a diverse field, Spotify will create a new playlist tailored made to your responses. So rather than taking a clue from your listening history, it will make full use of your responses. The ability to create such a custom workout playlist on Spotify has been made possible thanks to the new Soundtrack Your Workout feature. The music streaming service will make use of your answers to certain questions that will pop up in the “quiz”.

From your workout session duration to the ability to add/remove explicit content, to the type of workout that you choose, your response will be responsible for the type of playlist that is about to be created. Likewise, it will also enquire about your workout vibe, whether you are doing it in solo or virtual groups, and the type of genre that you are interested in. Spotify will give you one final option to review all your responses and if reply in the affirmative, Spotify will present you with a new custom workout. So if you are interested in creating one for yourself, then here are the required instruction set. Follow along.
