Spotify launches AI-powered “DJ” feature using OpenAI technology
Spotify’s new feature using OpenAI technology called “DJ” creates personalized music recommendations with artificial intelligence-supported comments.
Spotify, one of the most popular music streaming platforms in the world , draws attention especially with the personalized playlists it offers. Aiming to personalize and offer special content to what its users listen to, the platform has implemented a new feature supported by artificial intelligence in this context . Using OpenAI technology called “DJ” , the feature creates personalized music recommendations with artificial intelligence-supported comments.
Spotify describes the DJ as ” a personalized AI guide that knows you and your musical tastes well and can choose what to play for you .” This feature, which was first made available in the beta version, offers a curated music sequence as well as comments about the tracks and artists that the user will like in a realistic voice.
According to what was shared, the feature will list the latest music and return some of the user’s old favorites, perhaps even resurrecting songs that haven’t been listened to in years. It will then review what the user might like and present a stream of songs selected just for the user. In addition, the lineup will be constantly renewed according to the feedback.
The DJ also makes audio comments about the tracks being played, just like a human. A dynamic artificial intelligence audio platform from Sonantic, which Spotify acquired last year, is used to convert text to audio . To use the feature, it is enough to click the DJ button.
The OpenAI powered feature is still in beta and is currently only available in English for Spotify Premium subscribers in the US and Canada. It is not yet clear when it will be activated for other countries.
