Spotify's latest personalized playlist is full of your favorite throwback hits

Spotify introduces new service which tries to guess what you listened to at school

Your Time Capsule generates the playlist based off a mix of songs you've previously streamed, as well as the date of birth you put in when first signing up for Spotify.

This is Spotify's latest attempt at mining your past for playlists.

To get started, you can visit the web link for the playlist; visit the "Decades" section in "Browse" in Spotify's app for iOS and Android; or you can look for it at the top of Spotify's "Home" page. It's also only available for users over 16, according to The Verge, otherwise it wouldn't be much of a throwback.
