AI Playlists on the Horizon

Code snippets within the Spotify application point to the development of “AI playlists” and “user-description-based playlists,” as revealed by application researcher Chris Messina. While Spotify introduced the “Niche Mixes” function earlier, it’s important to note that this feature relies on technologies and personalization algorithms rather than AI.

Blend Feature and User Collaboration

These developments may tie into the Blend feature, where certain code fragments indicate the potential for collaborative playlist creation involving multiple users. While not all code features make it to the public version, this discovery underscores Spotify’s keen interest in integrating AI technology to enhance music personalization.

Spotify’s AI Endeavors

Spotify boasts a dedicated division focused on advanced language models and employs a substantial team of experts in personalization and machine learning technologies, including a research group skilled in large language models and generative algorithms, notes NIX Solutions. While Spotify has experimented with a ChatGPT chatbot for music requests, it has yet to be released to the public.
