Google might not have as many YouTube Music subscribers as Spotify, but it has way more software engineers. It's now applying some of those smarts to better compete against its rival with a new automated playlist called "Discover Mix," spotted by 9 to 5 Google and some Reddit users. It's very similar in concept to Spotify's "Discover Weekly," in that it helps you find new songs and artists in line with your taste and listening history. I didn't get a chance to test it much myself and I'm not a YouTube Music user , so the selections it presented me were pretty random. However, one Reddit user said that "of the tracks from artists I have listened to before, almost all of them are songs I haven't heard before. Out of the 49 tracks in the playlist, I ended up "liking " and adding 32 of them to my library. I can't say that I've had the same success rate from Spotify's "Discover Weekly," as I usually only end up adding a couple of songs, tops, from my mix.

Daily mixes mostly contain music from your library with a new song here and there, so basically be mostly old stuff. Discover weekly though should contain mostly songs you have not listen. Here are a couple of suggestions I tend to use:. Just listen to some new stuff and add what you like to playlists. Spotify will start to recommend better stuff eventually. Daily mixes usually contain familiar music with a bit of new songs. One way that I like to find new songs is by using third party applications that recommend music. Usually there are some really good songs there.
Only a "find friends" button and the people I already follow are not listed there since I already follow them. Please give me feedback and suggestions on what you all think. Here's how to share a Spotify playlist. Have questions? Check out our wiki first.
We first built Spotlistr in to solve a problem: combine the music discovery capabilities of services across the internet with the exceptional listening experience of Spotify. It should be no surprise that we at Spotlistr utilize Spotlistr all the time. But how we use it has slowly evolved. For the first time since we launched in , we're here to show you how we at Spotlistr use Spotlistr to find new music. One of the more novel ways to use Reddit is to create Custom Lists formerly called Multireddits. There are a ton of really great music-focused subreddits , but subscribing to all of the ones that interest you may be overwhelming. This is where Custom Feeds come in handy.
