The importance of the human factor in musical discovery
At a time when we have at our fingertips (pun intended) almost all the music on the planet abundance can overwhelm. It is clear that we can search for exactly what we want to hear, but what if we don’t know what to listen to? This is where Apple Music enters the scene: personalized recommendations, playlists according to our tastes, top hits by country and now the top hits in our city.
The recommendation algorithms are very good, in fact they are essential, but being able to discover new music recommended by humans, even indirectly, is something else. Here Apple Music already took a step forward with lists curated by human editors And now it goes one step further allowing us to discover the music that is heard in our area.
An interesting novelty that is combined with other features of Apple Music, such as Apple Music One, the radio station, which give more personality to the service and the music that we can access through it. Each streaming service is different and approaches its differentiation strategy in its own way. At Apple, with the famous phrase that the music is in the Company DNA, have chosen to give relevance to the human factor.
It is clear that Apple Music seeks to provide a human factor to the content of its platform. It works like this, where we can find the lists of the most listened to songs in our closest environment are further proof of this. Some lists that with daily updates can be the most curious in terms of their evolution and the possibility of discovering new music interactively. Good news for sure.
