Bringing Back your Old Favorites
This feature, which is first rolling out in beta, will put together a curated musical lineup alongside some intriguing commentary about the tracks and artists in an incredibly realistic voice. Apart from sorting the newest racks for you, the DJ feature will play your old favorites you haven’t listened to in aeons.
After analyzing what you might enjoy, depending on your taste, will deliver a personalized playlist. Additionally, it will constantly work on the playlist depending on your feedback. If you don’t like what’s playing, hit the DJ button and it will take care of the rest. The more you listen and tell the DJ your preferences, the better its recommendations will get.

AI DJ – The Technology Behind it
Just like the DJ at your favorite club knows what you love, Spotify’s DJ will also treat you to some latest releases based on your musical taste, or take you back to the good ‘ol days with a nostalgic playlist. The DJ features take the listening experience to a whole new personal level.
Spotify combines personalization technology and OpenAI to give you a lineup of music recommendations based on what we know you like.
To satiate the passionate musical soul in you, Spotify’s expert music editors provide the users with insightful facts about the music, artists, or genres they’re listening to. The brand boasts of experts in genres who know the music scene, and the culture better than anyone else.
Sonantic for Stunningly Realistic Voices
Spotify depends on the dynamic AI voice platform that works wonders in producing stunningly realistic voices from the text.
To create the voice model for the DJ, Spotify chose their Head of Cultural Partnerships, Xavier “X” Jernigan who served as one of the hosts on Spotify’s first (and personalized) morning show, The Get Up. His voice and personality did magic with the listeners and so Spotify chose his voice as the first model for the DJ.
