Spotify Tests Emergency Alert Feature For Sweden

Spotify is heavily testing features and functions on their audio streaming platform. The strangest latest is the emergency alert. This feature is said to be able to warn users when they are carelessly streaming music, podcasts or videos.

This emergency warning is said to be specific to the country of Sweden, which is the country of origin where Spotify was developed. This warning can inform any accident information, any service interruption and even serious disaster. The following is the message users will receive on the Spotify application;

"Emergency alerts in Sweden"

"Receive public emergency alerts"

"Important public announcement, IPA, is the system used to alert the public in Sweden in the case of accidents, serious events, or disruptions of important services"

"Visit the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency site for more information"

This is strange because the Swedish government does not require streaming services to include emergency warning features to users. This is in contrast to the idea of ​​the United States government which wants to include it so that their citizens are not complacent with streaming services in the event of an emergency.
