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.

This mobile-only feature can adjust the pace of a playlist to match the vibe of the party, according to the user controlled mood tuner. For the launch, Spotify has premiered a 120-track playlist from certified party king Diplo. They promise more DJ-generated playlists to come.

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...
