Spotify has added a “stunningly realistic” robot DJ to its app so enters metaverse news. This computerized song-spinner queues up music based on your musical tastes and listening history.
Starting Wednesday, Spotify Premium users in the U.S. and Canada will be able to use the beta version of DJ in English.
Spotify already has a lot of personalized listening features built into the service, like the Daily Mix and Discovery Weekly playlists that are made for you automatically.
DJ is different because it uses technology from OpenAI to combine the personalization features of Spotify with generative AI (the company behind ChatGPT chatbot). Spotify says it put the AI tech in the hands of its music editors “to provide you with insightful facts about the music, artists or genres you’re listening to,” according to the company.
More details about DJ
Additionally, just like a human DJ, Spotify’s DJ provides continual commentary about the tracks and artists that are currently being played. The feature utilizes a text-to-speech engine acquired by Spotify from Sonantic.
The company turned to its head of cultural partnerships, Xavier “X” Jernigan, who previously served as one of the hosts of Spotify’s first (and personalized) morning show, “The Get Up,” to construct the voice model for the DJ in its initial release. Jernigan’s voice is the initial model for the DJ. ” Jernigan’s voice is the first model for the DJ, and “we’ll continue to iterate and innovate, as we do with all our products,” Spotify said.
The Spotify DJ will analyze new releases that it predicts you will enjoy, as well as resurface songs that you have previously played on repeat.
In addition, the feature continually updates the lineup based on your feedback. If the playlist that the DJ is playing is not to your liking, you can select the “DJ” button to skip to the next genre or mood.
The new feature is “a generative, expressive and realistic AI DJ that delivers a personalized lineup of music and commentary to each user, for all those times you don’t know exactly what you want to hear,” Spotify chief R&D officer Gustav Söderström tweeted.
