If you're anything like us, you're always listening to music—anytime, anywhere. And if you're like us even more, you're constantly racking your brain trying to think of new fun activities to do with your bestie. Well, look no further because we have the *perfect* idea for both issues: creating playlists!


Exploring interests: Learning someone’s music taste shows you so much about their personality and what they care about.
Thinking of you... Every time you listen to it, you’ll think of each other
The more FaceTime the merrier! You can keep adding to it together, giving you yet another excuse to FT with them :)
Far in distance, never at heart: You can work on it anywhere, connecting you with your BFF no matter the distance.

Step-by-step guide
Introduce the idea: Tell your bestie that you have been thinking about a new way to bond/hangout from a distance

Hop on a FaceTime: Discuss a theme and a vibe. Basically, figure out what you like. Pop? Indie? Rock? All of the above?

Make the playlist itself: One of you should go to your playlist library and click on “create a new playlist.” 

Make it collaborative: click on the three dots next to the “play” button and click on “collaborative.”

Share it: Text the collaborative playlist to your BFF. Now both of you can add to it.

Build on it: Start adding all your faves! (Read on for some foolproof inspo.)

Bonus: Come up with a cute title, description and cover. Happy listening!
