Generative AI features on Spotify are expanding with the addition of AI Playlists, an update that comes after the streaming app’s DJ feature that suggests personalized playlists using AI. Premium subscribers in the UK and Australia can now make AI playlists with a few prompts, but the feature is limited to Android and iOS for now.

Currently in its beta phase, the feature allows users to enter a few prompts to generate an AI playlist within seconds. It can be found under the + icon in the Library section. Spotify suggests a few examples prompts such as “an indie folk playlist that gives my brain a big warm hug,” “relaxing music that keeps me happy during allergy season,” or “a playlist that makes me feel like the main character.” However, users have the option to enter their own prompts as well.


In this section, users can select a text for genre, mood, artist, decade, or any combination of these, but Spotify goes even deeper with more options such as locations, animals, activities, movie characters, colors, or emoji. Spotify suggests that the prompt should be as detailed as possible for the best results.

Once a prompt is complete, Spotify then tries its best to generate a playlist based on the choices made. Users also have the option to further alter the AI playlists with more prompts such as “less upbeat” or “more pop.” It also allows the removal of songs by swiping on the screen. The “Create” on the top right will save the AI playlist into the library.

Spotify is fusing its renowned personalization technology with artificial intelligence to introduce “AI Playlist.” The company has highlighted that this feature is currently undergoing beta testing and is tailored exclusively for music-related inputs, steering clear of current events or particular brands. Furthermore, Spotify assures users that any prompts considered offensive will be actively filtered out.

Details on the international availability of the AI Playlist remain undisclosed. However, Spotify has committed to dedicating the next several months to the feature’s enhancement and development.
