    Spotify’s auto play AI algorithm annoys the s--- out of me. I put on the Euphoria show soundtrack and after playing through, it went from this:

    To:
    C5E00332-0BD6-47DD-9103-3876B5D90FD8.jpeg

    I skipped that and it went to this:

    My listening habit is maybe 50/50 hip hop vs alternative genres and yet it 100% of the time results in trash hop within a few tracks and I end up having to block artists.

    Apparently there’s no way to reset the algorithm. You have to create a new user.

    To h--- with that.

    anybody else? Know a way to mitigate?

    Same with me bro. I dunno how the radio feature works for you. I like a song and want to hear some similar music so i open the radio of that song and they show me the same tracks as recommendation every time most of them already in my library. does anybody have experience with apple music? Need a service where i can discover new music easily

    Also, shout out Bonnie Tyler. She's a doll. I can be her hero.

    You can try. If it doesn’t work buy the new #COTIFY music streaming service. It only includes lloyd banks discography on repeat also if you get the one year membership you get a free mixtape hoodie

    Yeah I’ve had similar problems, my playlists always show the same recommendations even after clearing them at the bottom, i just use Apple Music mostly now, save Spotify for when i want to share playlists etc.

    Spotify shuffle isn’t true shuffle neither & was specifically designed that way based off of accumulated data. i wish they’d just allow more customisation, would solve all the problems of more experienced users instead of making everyone adhere to the casual listener algorithm.

    I have apple music and barely use it outside of my own personal music I'm able to upload. What do you like apple music for that you think makes it better than spotify?

    Here are the pros of each:
    Shuffle: AM
    Lossless: AM (but not in the TV app yet for some reason)
    Cloud Personal Library: AM
    Design: AM
    Pays more to artists: AM
    Ecosystem: AM

    Remote Play: Spotify
    Optimisation: Spotify
    Social features: Spotify
    Podcasts: Spotify

    They both have different advantages, it just depends on what’s more important for your personal experience really.

    I used both Apple Music and Spotify. Spotify's AI is so much better, I discovered hundreds of new songs and dozens of new artists just based on Spotify's Discover Weekly playlist. I'm thankful for Spotify. It actually helped me find the music I can like without having to follow mainstream and stuck with very very limited amount of releases. Usually gives out beautiful authentic indie, alternative, house, electronic music for me. Even for hip hop, I usually get jazzy stuff that I have never heard before. I don't think there was anything remotely like Discover Weekly on APple Music anyway.
