How to make a musical pie chart based on your Spotify

If you’ve been on the internet and seen people sharing their musical tastes via pie chart format, then you might be curious as to how they’ve made the diagram. Well, there’s an online feature to analyse your Spotify listening habits which can create such a pie chart.

The feature was developed by UCLA student Darren Huang and you can access it via his website. He describes the genre app as “Spotify Pie” and asks users to “Bake Your Monthly Genre Pie” with his creation.

All it requires is for the user to log into their Spotify account through Huang’s genre app. It will then develop a custom musical pie chart based on your Spotify listening habits.

Music fans share their pie charts

Those who have discovered Darren Huang’s genre app have been sharing the results of their musical pie charts. In the pie chart, you can see a breakdown of all the music genres you listen to, as well as the main artists you stream on Spotify.

Some have been surprised by the pie chart results, as the chart lists a range of unique genres which some users never even heard of. One user was surprised that they listened to ‘Ohio hip hop’, having not heard of the genre before.
