How AI is fitting right into music streaming app development & transforming it?
Posted on August 12, 2021
Technology has fueled the growth of the music industry in ways that one would have not imagined three decades back. From the nostalgic days of cassettes to the times of MPs and CDs and the current digital disruptions through music streaming platforms, we have come a long way. The industry has benefitted from rapid technological advancements in line with any other industry.
Today most of us are too occupied in life. No one has the time to go through the list of songs, sort out their favorite songs and add them to their playlist. This is where technologies like Artificial Intelligence and machine learning comes into the picture. They give users what exactly they are looking for – access to all favorite songs without them putting too much effort.
Features of Music Streaming App Development and how AI fits in perfectly
Let us understand different features of music streaming app and how AI perfectly fits into the app –
1. Quick access to millions of songs:
You only need a tap on your smartphone to start listening to your favorite music.
AI makes accessing music a cakewalk – Using filtering engines, which scan through thousands of newly uploaded songs to develop playlists and recommendations targeted to each individual, AI eliminates the need for users to browse through thousands of songs to pick out their favorite songs.
If you have selected your favorite genre, AI not only suggests songs from that genre but similar songs from other genres and transforms your music experience.
Unlike the time of CDs and cassettes, when to listen to a new song, you had to pay money, the streaming apps are very affordable. In fact, the basic version of these apps is free.
Users do not have to pay per song, but rather paying per month or per year for unlimited songs from unlimited artists.
3. Unlimited storage and personalized playlist:
Earlier, an average person could only afford a song collection of 200-400 songs for two reasons. First, the cost was high, so limited buys, and second, the storage issue. A music stream app allows users to have access to millions of songs without storage issues.
Today users expect technology to suggest them songs. With help of AI, algorithms can be created to suggest songs to you similar to what you have listened to earlier.
The app can examine millions of users, check what others are listening to who have a similar playlist to a user X and then show user X, related music in his feed.
A music streaming app uploads thousands of songs every day, and a user only may be interested in a selected few, AI gives them exactly that.
4. A place for artists:
Improved search engines and customized suggestions can profit new artists who need to contact a more extensive crowd and get their music noticed. New upcoming artists have a ready platform where they are sure to get good exposure.
As per experts, the application of AI in the music streaming industry is still in the early stage (and yet it has done wonders). In the coming years, it will completely transform the industry. At present, AI suggests songs based on your previous choices. In the future, it may read your heart rate and stress level to suggest songs to you.
