Miss the sounds of your colleagues and your office? A new website from Spotify can help you feel a little more like you’re back in the cubicle.

What’s going on:

Spotifyreleased a new website called “The Sound of Colleagues” — found at soundofcolleagues.com — that allows you to play sounds of your office building, giving you a chance to feel like you’re still working in the office and not at your home.

The website allows you to customize the sounds of the day, including:

  • The tone of the room.
  • An open window.
  • Coffee machine.
  • Telephones ringing.
  • An office dog.
  • Keyboard clattering.
  • Rain pattering on a window.
  • A printer.
  • People talking.

Another way to play it

  • According to Mashable, you can access the sounds through a Spotify playlist, which has a few extended options, including typewriters to Friday afternoon sounds to gear up for the weekend.
