Spotify Discover Now Available to All Via Web PlayerBy: Josh Wolford - May 30, 2013
Last December, Spotify announced a brand new “discovery” feature that harnessed the streaming music company’s data on your past streaming habits and various recommendation engines to give users suggestions on what to listen to next. Today, Spotify is making the Discover tab available to all users via the web player.
“With the Discover page, we’re making good on our promise of helping you choose what to listen to when faced with millions of songs,” says Gustav Söderström, Chief Product Officer, at Spotify. “We’ve made your listening experience more personal, more social and more current.”
The Discover tab features a bunch of different ways to find new music as well as more information on music you currently love. Personalized recommendations suggest artists and tracks based on what you’ve listened to and who you’ve followed. You’ll also see the music and playlists shared by your Spotify friends. And a related music feature also gives you suggestions on what to play next, based on the song you’re currently listening to.
Spotify harnesses the power of Pitchfork, Songkick, and Tunigo (which they just purchased) for these recommendations. According to the company, it’s now available for everyone on the web and will continue to roll out to Spotify’s desktop and mobile apps in the coming weeks.
