Spotify’s AI DJ feature wants to be a whole lot more than just a feature as it wants to be your favorite radio station as well. With a realistic radio announcer voice, the new feature is Discover Weekly, but on steroids.
Spotify’s AI DJ Feature Wants To Be A Whole Lot More Than Just A Feature
Digital music service and platform Spotify has now announced a new beta feature known as DJ. This new beta feature allows music fans to listen to their very own personal radio station, complete with announcements by an AI host.
Ziad Sultan, the head of personalization at Spotify revealed to CNET that DJ collects existing personalization features such as Daily Mixes and Wrapped “to the next level.” The DJ features add a “generative AI in the hands of music experts” which then translates specifically to some curated tracks and also incorporates an AI DJ’s voice. The AI DJ taps the voice of Xavier “X” Jernigan of Spotify and then translates information such as names of tracks and the biographies of artists.
