This app uses AI to generate custom playlists for Spotify and Apple Music
If you’re tired of music streaming apps deciding what to listen to, take back the power. PlaylistAI is an app that uses AI to help you create playlists easily, and it is compatible with Spotify and Apple Music. It lets you specify what kind of music you’re looking for and creates custom playlists for you. Here are some ways you can use PlaylistAI to expand your musical horizons.
Create playlists from music festival posters
Major music festivals tend to advertise their lineups with a large poster containing the names of all participating bands. PlaylistAI can scan these posters, identify all the artists and create amazing playlists for you. You simply take a screenshot of one posters and upload it to PlaylistAI.
I tried this with a poster for the music festival Bottlerock. The app identified all the bands on the poster and provided an alternative to remove them I was not it interested in. That too traces you can choose the number of songs per band you want in your playlist. With five songs per band, PlaylistAI created a playlist of more than 300 songs and I was able to enjoy the music of the festival without the costs and crowds.
Create playlists from TikTok videos
PlaylistAI also works with TikTok videos. There are many creators who create collections on TikTok, and if you’ve found a video that has multiple songs, you can save it to your photo gallery and import it into PlaylistAI.
The app can detect these songs and create a playlist for you. However, there is a catch: You need to give PlaylistAI access to your microphone in order to detect thisa singer. It asks you to play these videos through the iPhone speaker and uses audio recognition to find the music. You need to be in a quiet place during the audio recognition process, because if the app can’t hear the songs clearly, it can’t create accurate playlists.
While the app advertises TikTok videos specificallyYou can use this feature with any video from your photo gallery. If one the video has several songs, the app can create a corresponding playlist.
Use custom keywords or listening history for playlists
PlaylistAI is also pretty good at using your keywords to create playlists. You can mention any genre and decade to find great playlists easily, or try a random message based on your mood. For example: “1970 metal’ or ‘lo-fi music for studying’. You get the option to remove artists you don’t like, and look for more artists if the app’s selection doesn’t land for you.
If you’re a Spotify user, you can let the app access your listening history to create playlists as well. This feature is not currently available for Apple Music.
PlaylistAI lets you create up to three playlists for free, and it costs $2.99 per month to unlock unlimited playlists and remove the watermark from playlist covers.
