Spotify's latest AI feature creates playlists with written descriptions

Spotify tested its ability to create playlists with artificial intelligence within its DJ feature last year. The company has now started beta testing a feature that allows users to create playlists based on written texts. Spotify first made the feature, called AI Playlist, available to Premium subscribers on mobile devices in the UK and Australia.

Android and iOS users living in these countries need to go to the Library menu in the Spptify app and tap the “+” icon in the upper right corner of the page.

When the “AI Playlist” option is selected from the menu that opens here, users will be able to access a special playlist of 30 songs by typing a description such as “songs that can be listened to in rainy weather”. The list can be fine-tuned with commands such as “sadder songs.” If users are satisfied with the list they see, they will be able to tap “Create” on the screen and save the list. It is worth noting that this feature is currently only available in English.

Spotify AI will continue to work on improving the Playlist feature

Spotify says users will get better playlists by using prompts that include “a combination of genres, moods, artists, or decades,” and the feature can reference places, animals, events, movie characters, colors, and even emojis. The company said it will continue working on the productive playlist feature “in the coming months.”

Spotify currently offers the AI ​​Playlist feature with certain restrictions. For example, it is not possible to prepare a playlist by naming a brand or in light of current events. The company also blocks searches using terms that could be considered “offensive”.
