Many of Spotify users have been coming across a new playlist generated automatically by the streaming platform called «Weekly discovery«. This new list consists of 30 songs of varied artists but according to the type of music you have listened to lately and changes every Monday with new songs according to the last music listened to.
To create these playlists, Spotify relies on the history of recent songs and the histories of other users or friends with similar tastes to ours. Usually weekly discovery charts will have multiple songs from various groups that we have probably not heard before in order to meet new artists and groups.
This playlist will automatically appear to users in the «Your music«, Along with the rest of the playlists. If any user does not want this list to appear among the rest of their playlists, they can simply stop following it and access it from the «To explore“Or”Discover»From Spotify.
By default these playlists are private so as not to compromise our privacy, although they can easily be converted to public from the list settings menu.
The intention of Spotify with these new playlists is to create each week something similar to the cassette tapes that were recorded in the 80s and 90s with varied songs that the user can listen to again and again without getting tired, at least for 7 days. The content of this playlist will be different every week and the more we use the platform the more accurate the results will be.
These playlists have started to appear to some users in the last week of July and are gradually reaching a larger number of users. Those users to whom this automatic playlist still does not appear will have to wait a few more weeks or if they are not regular users of the platform they will have to use it more often since Spotify needs to be able to know the tastes and interests of the users in order to generate The lists.
Spotify, which until recently was an industry leader, now has tough rivals like Google Music, Apple Music and Tidal, so you have to find the best way to convince your users to use your service and not another, and one of the best ways to do it is by improving the algorithm of suggestions to be as accurate as possible and to be able to advise users about new songs, new groups and new trends from one place.
Before concluding we want to share with you the list that has generated us. After listening to it we have been able to verify that the songs have been very well selected according to our tastes and interests. We encourage you to share your lists with us in the comments, although remember to set them as “public” before doing so.
Are you a Spotify user? Do you already have one of these new playlists? Is it according to what you have heard before?
