What does each Spotify Permission do?

The TL;DR is they are required so SameTunes can learn the most about your music tastes to provide you the most useful analysis and compatibility assessment. We will never modify your Spotify content without your express permission to do so. Your data and permissions are of the highest priority for SameTunes.

However, some users may be rightfully cautious upon seeing the amount of Spotify Permissions needed to use SameTunes. To help put their worries to rest we have included this list that shows exactly why we need each permission:

  1. Read your top artists and content: Used to track what artists and songs you listen to the most. Used in comparisons and analysis.
  2. Get your real email address: Used to send notifications on the platform. All of which are easily turned off.
