What is Spotify's Stranger Things mode? Learn how to activate

Spotify has a "hidden" filter that takes the application to the "Inverted World" of the Netflix Stranger Things series. When playing the soundtrack of the first or second seasons of the series, the player takes on a dark aspect, with the cosmic dust of Demogorgon's land floating on the screen. In addition, the player icon turns into a flashlight, which illuminates the cover of the album - the promotional poster of the attraction.

The feature was released on the occasion of the series' second season premiere in 2017, in a time close to Halloween, and only works with songs that are part of the soundtrack of the show. The feature is available in the streaming app for Android and iPhone (iOS). In web and desktop versions, it only appears to some people. Another interactive option announced by the partnership was the test to know which character in the series the Spotify user looked like. A link from the service analyzed the musical habits and displayed a playlist of the character with the closest tastes as a suggestion. This feature has already been removed from the air.
