Personal radio service Pandora built its business on recommendations: its famous Music Genome Project to help it slot songs together in logical playlists. Now it’s pushing on with a new feature for mobile: “personalised station recommendations“. The idea: streaming stations that will “provide listeners with up to six suggested artist stations to add and listen to at a time, based on current listening preferences, taking into account your station list and what you have told us you like or dislike through thumb interactions”. As ever with this kind of feature, the more people use it, the more it promises to understand their tastes and refine the recommendations. It’s another step towards music services that need the minimum of input from users when firing up an application: cutting out even the step of thinking of an artist to base a station on.
