Where Spotify leads, others follow. One of Spotify’s best features are its curated playlists that populate with songs that the streaming service’s algorithms think you’ll like, and they’re usually spot-on. So it’s no wonder the competition is copying the idea.

The idea being to save Tidal users from having to find new music for themselves.

Tidal Hopes My Mix Will Keep People Listening

Tidal describes My Mix as “a personalized curation of songs that offers an easy way to enjoy more of the music you love.” It’s “personalized to your specific listening habits […] based on your most recent listening patterns and what’s saved to your collection.”

Each user will receive up to six playlists containing a maximum of 50 songs apiece. These will be grouped by genre or artist, hence the need for up to six different playlists per person. If you have a very narrow taste in music you might only get one playlist.

The key thing is that these playlists will be continually updated. Essentially, the more music you listen to, the more Tidal can finetune your My Mix playlists. Once you’re happy with Tidal’s selections you can save each playlist to your collection.
