Spotify is about more than just streaming your favourite music, and over the years the service has given its users no shortage of special features to get to grips with.

From the ever-popular Wrapped, revealing your most listened-to tracks of the year, through to the Playlist In A Bottle due to be revealed for many users in 2024, the streaming giants are always finding new ways to keep us entertained.

And their latest offering is AI DJ, guaranteed to give you a more personalised listening experience.

Just what is AI DJ, how does it work, and how do you get it? Here’s what you need to know..

What is Spotify AI DJ?

AI DJ is a music personalisation feature which will play you a curated line-up of music – based on its knowledge of your favourites.

The AI will also give you commentary around the tracks and artists in a ‘stunningly realistic voice’. 

‘DJ is a personalized AI guide that knows you and your music taste so well that it can choose what to play for you,’ said Spotify.

The feature, which was rolled out for Premium subscribers in the UK and Canada earlier this year, is based on generative AI technology from Open AI, the creators of viral chatbot ChatGPT.

The voice of the version being rolled out in the UK and Ireland is modelled on Spotify’s own Head Of Cultural Partnerships, Xavier ‘X’ Jernigan.

‘You can expect us to continue innovating and staying fresh. We won’t let it get stale,’ Jernigan said.

‘It’s going to keep learning you, and the quality of what the DJ is saying will continue to get better.

So, expect it to keep blowing your mind. Just stay tuned, keep using it, and keep rocking with me as your DJ. I promise you won’t be disappointed. It’s only going to get better.’
