Spotify announced the introduction of “daylist,” a highly personalized playlist that automatically and consistently adapts to its user’s moods, patterns, and listening preferences.
Daylist - highly personalized and constantly changing
The Swedish music streaming platform Spotify surprises its users with yet another update that comes in the form of a new, personalized playlist called daylist.
While it is similar to Discover Weekly and Release Radar, it also comes with significant differences as it updates consistently throughout the day by analyzing user behavior in depth. This means that if you normally enjoy listening to groovy House music in the morning, Trap music throughout the day, and Liquid Drum and Bass in the evening, your daylist will provide you with exactly that.
Spotify’s official press release offers more insight and describes the new feature as follows:
“This new, one-of-a-kind playlist on Spotify ebbs and flows with unique vibes, bringing together the niche music and microgenres you usually listen to during particular moments in the day or on specific days of the week. It updates frequently between sunup and sundown with a series of highly specific playlists made for every version of you. It’s hyper-personalized, dynamic, and playful as it reflects what you want to be listening to right now.”
Daylist furthermore aims to expose users to new songs that match their mood and helps them better understand their taste in music:
“You’ll get new tracks at every update, plus a new title that sets the mood of your daylist. With relatable titles including thrillwave, happy dance, pumpkin spice, and more, the playlist helps you understand more about your taste in music—and express your unique audio identity.”
Another exciting aspect of Spotify’s daylist is the background graphics and colors of the covers that you can post to your socials. They, too, change according to the time of the day and are brighter in the morning and darker in the evening.
Your daylist can also be saved permanently. However, you should act quickly as it never remains the same for too long. The new feature can turn out highly beneficial for independent artists who upload songs to Spotify as it increases their chances of getting featured in other people’s playlists unexpectedly.
The new feature is currently available for premium subscribers in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand.
