Spotify’s Playlists Can Now Predict Which Songs You’ll Want to Add

Spotify is expespotify1rimenting with a feature called Playlist Extender that uses an algorithm to automatically suggest songs when you’re creating playlists.

And here’s the crazy part: It recommends songs based solely on the name of the playlist, even before you’ve added any music. On Twitter, Spotify’s Echo Nest platform director Paul Lamere shared some examples: Start a playlist called “moog” and the system suggests songs famous for their use of Moog synthesizers, such as music by Donna Summer, Parliament, and Emerson Lake and Palmer. It also pulled a song from “Switched On Bach” the album of classical music that pretty much popularized early synthesizers.
