Hello music discovery. Spotify here.

 

  • Buckle up, lean back and play: Discover feature available to all 

Don’t know what to listen to next? That’s okay. We do. Spotify’s Discover page seeks out personalised recommendations by seamlessly combining Spotify’s best-in-class technology and social tools with curated content from music experts including Pitchfork, Songkick, Tunigo, and much, much more. Features include:

  • New personalised recommendations every day based on the music you love
  • New releases from the artists you follow
  • All the music and playlists shared by friends and trendsetters you follow
  • Find out when an artist you love is touring near you – the information will just bubble up through recommended shows from Songkick
  • Related Music: play a song and get instant recommendations on what to play next

“With the Discover page, we’re making good on our promise of helping you choose what to listen to when faced with millions of songs,” says Gustav Söderström, Chief Product Officer, at Spotify. “We’ve made your listening experience more personal, more social and more current.”

Make sure you also check out our handy Audio Preview feature. Dip into new music without moving away from the song you’re playing. Just click and hold over any play button on the Discover page – if you like what you hear, save it for later or play it straight away. The choice is yours.

As of today, the Discover feature is available to everyone on our web player – a great additional feature for times you can’t play music through your Spotify desktop app. So whether you’re at the office, or over at a friend’s house, simply log in to your account on the website and hit play. To check out Discover on the Spotify web player today, simply head to www.spotify.com.

The Discover page will gradually roll out to Spotify’s desktop and mobile apps.

Happy discovering!
