Remember the days when Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist seemed like algorithmic sorcery? Now the idea of ‘algo-personalised’ streaming playlists is almost commodified: or at least, most streaming services have them as a standard feature.
Tidal is late to the party, but its new My Mix feature sounds good – if a direct swipe from Spotify’s Daily Mix feature. Tidal users will get six “custom curated collections” with up to 50 songs each, blending older and newer tracks based on their listening habits. The most active users will get daily updates, reports The Verge, with – and this is where Tidal has gone beyond what Spotify has so far, workarounds excepted – the My Mix playlists able to be saved for offline listening. My Mix is rolling out worldwide to Tidal subscribers already.
