Napster’s interactive playlist maker is designed to make the process of building and editing playlists fun and easy by recommending great contextual music suggestions for a listener’s playlist. As you’re building your playlist, Napster will suggest music to add based on existing tracks in your playlist and listening habits. With a quick swipe to the left, you can reject the song, or with a swipe to the right, you can “match” the song to your playlist. Of course, you can still manually build playlists, as well.
And now, through integration with GIPHY, you can add animated GIFs as cover art for your playlists. It’s simple. When you create a new playlist, Napster will automatically suggest a GIF based on the playlist title. You can either use the suggested GIF or pick your own from GIPHY’s catalog of tens of thousands of GIFs. The result is a unique and fun way to add more personality to your playlist.
“There’s a GIF for every emotion, and now there’s also a perfect GIF for every playlist,” David Rosenberg, Director of Business Development at GIPHY said. “We’re excited to work with Napster to bring the power of GIPHY to its users, to personalize their creations and equip their users across the globe with the power of GIFs.”
To celebrate the new playlist features, Napster today launched an exclusive contest for subscribers: Listeners who create a playlist using the new playlist builder are eligible to enter a contest to win a free one-year subscription to Napster. Subscribers can enter by posting their playlist on Facebook or Twitter with #NapsterDJ and a link to their public playlist.
