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.”
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!
