How to use Spotify AI DJ

Frequent Spotify users will know that the platform has a knack for knowing what you want to listen to next. Now, that process is even easier with Spotify’s own AI DJ.

Spotify debuted a new AI DJ feature earlier this year and it’s finally made its way over to the UK and Ireland. The AI DJ combines all the Spotify smarts we’ve come to love to deliver users a personalised DJ experience that caters to your exact music taste.
