Thereafter, it is going to review what composition you would like and then deliver a stream of songs. Based on your feedback, it will constantly refresh the music lineups. The more you will listen to the AI DJ and provide feedback, the better recommendation you will get.
However, for now, this brand new feature is rolling out in English for Spotify Premium users in the U.S. and Canada. It will roll out these features for regular users soon!
