Google probably knows you more than anybody ever will. From your reality to your virtual presence, it has so much of data about you that you will be amazed. In a major makeover, Google upgraded its Google Play Music, and now it can play music based on your mood. Google confirmed today that it is offering a brand new user interface which is based on machine learning in order to give what is relevant to you. The artificial intelligence algorithm is able to identify your location, what you are doing, including the weather and then give you playlists and recommend music which you may not have known that you wanted but when you listen to it, it just suits your mood.
Google in its blog post said, “When you opt in, we’ll deliver personalised music based on where you are and why you are listening — relaxing at home, powering through at work, commuting, flying, exploring new cities, heading out on the town, and everything in between. Your workout music is front and centre as you walk into the gym, a sunset soundtrack appears just as the sky goes pink, and tunes for focusing turn up at the library.”
Think of this new app as a hyper personalised, smart radio station. It is almost like Google Now just focussed on music. The Play Music taps into full Google Data Machine now which not only looks into your tracks but also your search history, youtube plays, email and calendar. This has been a long time dream of Elias Roman, the lead product manager for Google Play Music, as he has been working on this since 2014.
Google in the blog post said, “The new Google Play Music has a brand new home screen built just for you. Think of it as the ultimate personal DJ—one who listens not only to what you like but also when you like it, so the music that you care about now is always at the top of your screen.”
Google Play Music also delivers an offline playlist based on what you’ve recently listened to when you have no or poor internet connectivity. The new features will roll out within this week in the 62 countries in which Play Music is available.
