Its Android, iOS and Web apps are getting a new interface that’s powered by machine learning to recommend music based on what you’re doing and where you are.
You’ve probably seen Google Now deliver contextual cards with information relevant to your location and activities like flying, visiting the gym and commuting. The company’s music service will now use those smarts to bring you suitable playlists for every activity it can reliably detect.
Plus, a combination of machine learning and human curation will allow the app to surface relevant tunes based on your past listening history, such as new releases on Friday or dance music after work hours. You’ll be able to spot these recommendations every time you refresh Play Music’s home screen.
