Spotify are putting the music you’ve loved back in the mix with ‘On Repeat’ and ‘Repeat Rewind’, 2 new playlists made just for you.
Spotify know the music you like and that’s why a lot of their playlists are personalised and tailored to each listener. They take recommendations from the music you listen to, what similar listeners like, machine-learning and bring it all together for an often wildly accurate taste profile.
Discover Weekly set the standard for a regularly updated feed of great music tailored perfectly to the tastes of each listener. Then Release Radar dropped to present listeners with the new music from artists they love and ones they think they’ll love, each week.
With ‘On Repeat’ and ‘Repeat Rewind’ Spotify want to take you back through your favourite music. So rather than taking you on a route of discovery through new music, they want you to go back and re-discover the music you used to love or show you just how much you’re loving the music that’s new to you.
On Repeat – The music you’ve been streaming nonstop
Get even more of your current favorite tracks with On Repeat. This playlist helps you keep track of what you’ve been playing most over the past 30 days. On Repeat auto-updates, so you can be sure everything on there is the most up-to-date account of what you’ve been playing nonstop. It’s a great combination of all the music you love, no matter what artist or genre, so each time you tap play, it will sound a little different.
Repeat Rewind – The tunes you used to play a lot, re-delivered
On the other hand, Repeat Rewind is a great way to reminisce with the songs you fell in love with in the not-so-far-off past. It includes tracks that you played over a month ago for you to rediscover. Whether you’re constantly discovering something new or a purveyor of the classics, sometimes it feels good to just kick back with the familiar. Similarly to On Repeat, your songs can span across artists, moods, and genres, and update every five days. (But don’t worry, the tracks will never appear on both playlists at the same time).
Can’t wait to see the songs you’ve been streaming nonstop? These two playlists are now available globally for Free and Premium users in the Made For You Hub, as well as the “Uniquely Yours” shelf on Home.
