Spotify is sharing one new update after another. This week, they announced the launch of their new Auto-DJ functionality, which can mix your playlist like a pro. But they’re not done yet. Now, they are introducing Line-in, a brand new tool to help improve the information on their vast library of artists and music.
With this feature, the online streaming music platform aims to call out for the user’s help to add more precise metadata to its media repository. By asking you to answer to some surveys, the tool will collect information about artists and their aliases, genres, moods and song descriptions overall. A spokesperson told Variety:
“Listeners describe music in different ways, and understanding that information will help improve, extend, and confirm the information that describes music on Spotify. We hope to better understand how Spotify listeners interpret music, so that we can improve experiences for both listeners and artists.”
Similar to a collaborative platform, the concept sounds very promising for both artists and consumers, as it will ultimately allow Spotify to pinpoint the musical taste of the end-users and provide them with playlists that perfectly match their preferences.
As for the quality of the suggestions, Spotify has reassured their community that all the information will be reviewed and benchmarked.
