The app lets users create their own bespoke poems for their loved one using song titles.

Users can use Spotify’s catalogue of over 20 million songs to search for song titles, which they can then piece together to create their own romantic verses.

Once the poem has been created, it can then be shared as a Spotify playlist and sent to a significant other for free.

The app can be found at: spotify.com/playlistpoetry
