Spotify, the leading music streaming platform, is delving into groundbreaking territory by developing a new format for playlist generation powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and driven by text-based commands, akin to a ‘chatbot’. In recent months, the platform has been rolling out AI-driven features, including a DJ tool that recommends and comments on songs, harnessing the capabilities of OpenAI.
Renowned product designer Chris Messina recently uncovered lines of code hinting at AI-generated playlists, aptly referred to as ‘AI Playlist’. Screenshots shared by Messina on Threads indicate that these code snippets imply the possibility of obtaining playlists based on a series of textual instructions, suggesting that this tool will function much like a ‘chatbot,’ responding to text-based commands.
TechCrunch, which also gained access to Messina’s findings, reports that these code references also point towards ‘Spotify Blend,’ a feature that allows users to create shared playlists with friends and favorite artists.
Messina further revealed that his discoveries included references to code that suggest users will be able to invite others to collaboratively create AI-generated playlists.
While Spotify has not divulged the full details of this new feature, the company emphasized its commitment to enhancing its product offerings and delivering added value to its users. This latest venture into AI-driven playlist creation aligns with Spotify’s ongoing efforts to remain at the forefront of innovation in the music streaming industry.
The ‘AI Playlist’ feature promises to revolutionize the way users curate their music, opening up exciting possibilities for personalized and collaborative playlist creation. As Spotify continues to explore the potential of AI, music enthusiasts can look forward to a more dynamic and interactive music streaming experience in the near future.
