Spotify - another spy in our homes?

Spotify has patented a patent for a new technology.
“Spotify claims that the technology can detect, among other things, ‘emotional state, gender, age, or accent’ to recommend music”.
I am completely surprised and appalled by such an idea.
What do you think, are you surprised, appalled?
What is your opinion about this new technology?
