As announced during last month’s Stream On event, Spotify has been working on a new family of personalised playlists: Spotify Mixes. These new personalised playlists were inspired by Daily Mix, an incredibly popular part of the Spotify catalogue, and the most listened-to by Spotify’s existing users.
Beginning today, Free and Premium users globally will now have access to three new mix categories with clearer names that are easier to remember and evolve with the user: artist mix, genre mix and decade mix.
These mixes, built with Spotify users in mind, start with the songs users like and update with songs Spotify thinks they will love, ultimately growing with the user over time. Each mix category is updated frequently and will have several playlists featuring artists, genres and decades users listen to often - and are created with them at the core.
Users will be able to find the new artist mix, genre mix, and decade mix within Search in the “Made For You” hub.
