Spotify has announced that it’s launching new artist discovery features in its desktop client, including a new Related Artists tab to help users find more music they might like. It’s based on a recommendation engine built in-house by Spotify’s R&D team, based on millions of user listening hours. Developer Erik Bernhardsson says it’s just the first step towards improving Spotify’s recommendations. “Improving the way in which Spotify users can discover exciting new artists and music in general, such as by sharing playlists, will play a vital part in Spotify’s continuing evolution. This is only the beginning.” Source: Music Ally Blog
