AI Playlist is a new Spotify feature that allows the users to create new playlists by using prompts like "a heavy metal playlist for riding my bike" or "relaxing music to enjoy while fishing" and has limited availability. For now, it can only be used in the UK and Australia, on Android and iOS devices.

The list of Spotify Premium-exclusive features has just received a new method "to fuel discovery and music curation" alongside AI DJ and daylist. AI Playlist, currently in a beta testing stage, can be used by subscribers on Android and iOS devices who are located in the United Kingdom and Australia. According to Spotify, this tool allows users to easily turn their most creative ideas into playlists by taking advantage of AI.

To get started properly with AI Playlist, the user needs to select "Your Library" at the bottom-right of the screen in the Spotify mobile app. After tapping the "+" button, the "AI Playlist" needs to be selected. Next, there are two possible paths to follow. The first one involves using one of the suggestions available, and the other one requires the user's input. The prompts can be just the name of a big music genre, a sub-genre, or something more obscure, such as rock/power metal/depressive suicidal black metal, but they can also be long descriptions, such as "happy dance music for a morning yoga routine taking place in the courtyard" and so on. After the creation of the playlist, it can be fine-tuned by eliminating certain artists, requiring it to be slower or faster, and even more or less focused on a certain genre or sub-genre.

After going through the steps mentioned above, the "Create" button needs to be pressed, and the new playlist will be added to the library. Since the tool is still in beta, non-music-related prompts that focus on events or brands cannot deliver any results yet. Obviously, offensive prompts are also not going to deliver anything but a warning.

In the coming months, this new feature should become more refined. By the end of the year, it will probably be out of beta and also available in all markets where Spotify is currently operating.

Those interested in acquiring a 12-month Spotify subscription eGift Card from Amazon can currently grab it for $99, a price that includes the chance to choose one of the existing design presets and that can be delivered via email or SMS.
