Spotify has launched a new feature called Party mode to expertly beat-match a playlist, resulting in smooth track transitions. Alas, no more awkward pauses between tunes.

Is this a good thing? On the positive side, drunken randoms are less likely to snatch the aux cord and blast out Beyonce at 5am. On the down side. What next..?

That last one sounds quite good actually...
