    Spotify has teamed up with AccuWeather to build Climatune:

    [W]e conducted a comprehensive study into the connection between music and weather. We partnered with AccuWeather, to gather data from hundreds of weather stations around the world. This included a year’s worth of data mapped to six different web toys: sun, cloud, rain, snow, wind, and clear night. We then correlated this with 85 billion anonymized, aggregated streams in over 900 cities, to uncover any patterns.

    This is the first time I've reconsidered my decision to switch to Apple Music. This is great there are absolutely bands that I won't listen to on sunny days and music that doesn't make sense for cloudy days. Idk maybe I'm weird

    I think this is super cool! I love using Spotify to discover new music and the weather can have a huge influence on the genres of music I listen to day-to-day so this seems right up my alley.

    How does this affect each listener though? Will we get weather-related playlists depending on the weather now? Or are we stuck with these generic crappy ones?
