Spotify is rolling out a new feature that allows users to access personalized music recommendations from an AI DJ. They designed the AI DJ to help users to enjoy a unique listening experience that is tailored to their tastes.
Spotify AI DJ
It will sort through the latest music and look back at some of your old favorite-maybe even resurfacing that song you haven’t listened to for years. It will then review what you might enjoy and deliver a stream of songs picked just for you. If you’re not feeling the vibe, just tap the DJ button and it will switch it up.
To make this new feature possible, Spotify has used a combination of:
Spotify’s personalization technology: This gives you a lineup of music recommendations based on what they know you like. You can experience this in the existing playlists like Discover Weekly.
Generative AI: Through the use of OpenAI technology. Spotify put this in the hands of our music editors to provide you with insightful facts about the music, artists, or genres you’re listening to. With this generative AI tooling, editors scaled their innate knowledge like never before.
Dynamic AI voice Platform: This is from Spotify’s Sonantic acquisition that brings to life stunningly realistic voices from text.
How to Find the DJ
The AI DJ is rolling out in English starting today for Spotify Premium users in the U.S. and Canada. Once it is available in your country, this is how to access it.
- Head to your Music Feed on Home in the Spotify mobile app on your iOS or Android device.
- Tap Play on the DJ card.
- Let Spotify do the rest. The DJ will serve a lineup of music alongside short commentary on the songs and artists picked just for you.
