Spotify’s “daylist”, a New Way to Discover New Music

By Alexis Frorup

If you’re anything like me you’re listening to music on Spotify all the time. For a while, I had the issue of not being able to find the right “vibe” for the music I wanted to listen to at that moment. I made countless playlists with the same twenty songs and a few others mixed in and while those were good, they got a little old after a while. So when Spotify introduced the “daylist” this past September my problems were quickly solved.

Spotify’s daylist is a personalized playlist made by Spotify for you specifically based on what you usually listen to at that time of day. It updates six times a day, from early mornings to late nights, giving you a new playlist each with a different vibe. It throws familiar songs in with new recommendations, giving you a new experience every time.

One of the most entertaining parts of the daylist is the different playlist names they give you, some of my personal favorites of my own daylists being “lounging jazz hip hop night” and “soft angelic Monday afternoon”. They’re often fun and a little too accurate to the vibe I want to listen to at the time, filling my “liked songs” at a way faster rate than before. Spotify’s almost intrusive analytics result in enjoyable playlists with new recommendations that you never get too bored of, and if you do, all you have to do is wait for the next update of the day.
