While four out of every 10 people in the world live in domestic isolation with the aim of curbing the spread of the "Covid 19" epidemic, Spotify's music platform has reported that there is an increasing demand for calm musical styles and relaxing melodies.
"As more people remain in their homes in recent weeks, we have seen a change in different ways of listening to music and podcasts," the group said in a statement.
Spotify recorded an increase in listening to "soft" music, which the Swedish giant identified as "less vocal, dancing and enthusiastic", compared to other ratings on its subscriber lists.
Spotify also recorded an increase in topics related to "cooking and housework" on the playlists through various means such as computers, televisions, game consoles and smart amplifiers.
The group pointed out that the news podcast is attracting more and more attention like music, and the podcast for children, in addition to "music that helps sleep".
While the authorities recommend social divergence in many countries to limit the spread of the virus, the platform indicated a 135% increase in listening to a presentation titled "Don't Stand So Close To Me" (don't stand close to me) in recent weeks.
