Love music but not enough to actually seek out new artists? Hate music but want other people to think you love it? Don’t worry! Spotify’s released a new discover feature and it’s a lazy person’s dream.
Spotify’s Discover Weekly feature has seen the streaming service deliver a curated selection of new music to users, based on their listening habits. But its playlists were only two hours long and refreshed only once a week. BORING!
The platform’s newest feature, Daily Mix, offers a series of daily playlists that see your favourite, previously ‘liked’ bangers sit side-by-side with new tunes your ears have not yet enjoyed.
Spotify said in an emailed statement that the feature offers “near endless playback” and the option to either “ban” or “heart” certain songs you either love or can’t stand, depending on your mood.
And genre puritans, you can just chill right now, because Daily Mixes reportedly dont call out playlists by ‘type’ they simply group similar sounding tracks together under a thumbnail image that displays four LPs featured in the mix.
However, be warned. If you have kid’s music on your library, you risk Frozen’s “Let It Go” making the occasional appearance. Time will tell if smashing that “ban” button is enough to get rid of those unwanted songs we all listen to, but don’t necessarily want to play through the office speakers at work.
The feature is already available to Android and iOS users, although you’ll have to listen to a solid two weeks of music before the Daily Mixes algorithm kicks in.
Spotify says Daily Mix will be available on other platforms soon.
