Last December, Tidal introduced it’s “My Mix” feature, described below. Have you used it? Do you like it? How do you think it compares to other options (Spotify, etc.)?
The personalized My Mix playlists use a proprietary algorithm that combines data from users’ listening habits and input from TIDAL’s human-curated playlists to create the personalized mixes. The playlists will include a selection of new and old music based on users’ listening history, developing up to six personalized 50-song mixes following an initial learning period.
The playlists are separated based on artists and genres and updated on a regular basis — daily for the most active listeners. The more subscribers interact with their My Mix playlists, the better the results will be. Different iterations of the mixes can be saved and played offline on-demand.
“The combination of best-in-class human curation and top of the line AI technology will allow members to get more of the music they love,” said Lior Tibon, TIDAL’s chief operating officer, in a statement. “With over 60 million tracks available on TIDAL, we know discovery can be challenging. This new feature is part of our continued efforts to create the best possible experience for members.”
So far I’m digging it. I’ve listened to a couple and the choices were very much in line with the music I like. Wishing it would be added to BluOS too.
This feature has greatly improved my Tidal listening experience. It seems intuitive for the first 12 tracks or so. Then sometimes it ventures deeper into a genre than I’d like. All in all it’s a plus.
I concur with those above. I tend to be wary of auto-recommendation playlists, but I was feeling “selection lazy” one day and thought to just put on one of the My Mix playlists and give it a try – not expecting too much. I was very impressed! It was great, and since then I’ve played a number of the My Mix playlists. They have introduced me to new music that I really enjoy! And you can save (and then edit) them. Very nice!
Recently noticed that Tidal has the option to save My Mixes as playlists. Quick and easy fix to have access through the BluOS app.
New to Tidal. Although I mostly like to listen to full albums, I like Release Radar and Discover Weekly in Spotify and usually discover something new I like. Just listening to the first MyMix created for me. Can you train Tidal by saying not this track, artist or similar in the future?
Sort of. The algorithm is seeded by the music you favorite (artist, album and track). You can train the algorithm by favoriting more things so that it has more data to work with. There is no Pandora-style training feature that I know of. You can save a playlist and remove the songs you don’t like, which would help train the algorithm.
Now that it has more to work with Tidal is doing a pretty good job with the MyMixes
