Great news! You can now build a new playlist based on a prompt on Spotify.

Using the technology of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the app allows premium users to create a curated tracklist based on text descriptions.

Unfortunately, Kenyans will have to wait a bit longer, as the new AI Playlist beta is initially rolling out to Spotify Premium subscribers on mobile devices in the United Kingdom and Australia.

How to use it 

According to Spotify, to find the AI Playlist, tap on the mobile app and select “Your Library” at the bottom-right corner of your screen.

  • From Your Library, tap the “+” button at the top-right corner of the app and select “AI Playlist.”
  • Select one of the suggested prompts or type your own. Get creative and be specific! For example, you could try creating “sad music for painting dying flowers” or “tracks for horse riding into the sunset.”
  • Wait as we do our magic. Spotify will offer some tracks that match the vibe you’re going for. 
  • From there, you can easily manage the selection of songs by previewing and deleting tracks. Have notes? You can revise and refine the playlists you generate by telling AI Playlist what you’re looking for (i.e., “more pop” or “less upbeat”).
  • Tap “Create,” and your new playlist will be saved automatically in Your Library.

Speaking about the new addition, the company said: “We aim to deliver the right piece of music for that exact moment in time.

“With AI Playlist in beta, we’re excited to give Premium subscribers in the U.K. and Australia a new way to discover music.

“Over the coming months, we look forward to continuing to iterate on this new feature to best serve our listeners.”
