Spotify to Use AI in Serving Music to Listeners


Spotify wants to do more than Apple Music, Tidal, YouTube Music, Pandora, and other music streaming services. The service will do more than just present a clean UI and a potent algorithm that suits everyone.

The streaming service will take things further by fixing the “chink in its armor” and thereby dominate the music streaming industry to leave a massive impact.

To this end, the team at Spotify filed a patent in 2021, and that patent was granted on January 12, 2021. The new patent allows the app to analyze the emotional state of a listener and check other things such as age, gender, or even the voice, the noise levels preferred by the listener.

The Advanced AI will try to know the listener better, and analyze his or her surroundings, whether the listener is at home or at an event. Understanding the current mood of the listener helps the app to suggest music based on what the listener would most probably like on such occasions.

Spotify plans to make use of this alongside the smart AI algorithm that suggests the right music at particular times in the day. Some other features will come to the streaming service, such as the that has a karaoke-like overlay of a track with vocals of the user or the one that matches the tempo of the song with the physical activity. This will also hopefully give the service a lead over competitors in the future.

Spotify also has one of the best audio streaming quality out there. When compared to Deezer, TIDAL, and Amazon Music HD. The platform will also introduce the CD-quality streaming tier in late 2021 for Spotify Premium subscribers that upgrade their membership. This will enable them to enjoy high-quality lossless audio streams.
