Most people have multiple playlists, one for when you’re sad, one for when you’re getting ready to go out (or used to), but now Spotify is going to do that for you.
A patent has just been issued to the audio streaming and media services provider for a new technology that figures out your “emotional state, gender, age or accent,” based on your speech and will recommend music based on those variables.
It detects “intonation, stress, rhythm and the likes of speech units,” while taking into account background noise to determine whether the listener is alone or with other people.
Around three years ago, Spotify came up with the idea as they felt the existing method of recommending music was not sophisticated.
So whatever mood you’re in, Spotify has got you covered.
