Spotify launches creepily ‘realistic’ AI-powered DJ that tells you what to listen to – Here is how to use it
As if pursuing the professions of artists and writers wasn’t enough, artificial intelligence now has a new target: DJs.
The popular music streaming site Spotify has now unveiled a new AI-powered tool dubbed ‘DJ’.
It curated a playlist for you using all of the data Spotify has about your music tastes, much like a professional DJ.
It can even speak directly to users in a ‘stunningly realistic’ voice, providing commentary for the different tracks and artists it plays to you – just like a real radio DJ.
In a blog post announcing the feature, Spotify said: “The DJ is a personalized AI guide that knows you and your music taste so well that it can choose what to play for you.”
How to try out Spotify’s AI DJ
The DJ feature is already being rolled out to Spotify Premium users in the US and Canada today (February 23).
To try it out, follow these steps:
- Head to the Music Feed page on the Spotify app for Android or iPhone.
- Tap ‘Play’ on the card that says DJ on it.
- The ‘DJ’ will begin playing you a lineup of personalized music and providing commentary.
