Here’s the original story (published February 28, 2023):
Spotify hits AI fever with the announcement of the launch of its new AI DJ service on February 22, 2023.
Accessible as a beta option in the Spotify mobile app, but only available to Spotify Premium subscribers in the US and Canada.
Spotify users can’t access the new AI DJ
The feature comes as a result of Spotify’s acquisition of AI voice service Sonantic in 2022.
It’s been over a week since Spotify announced this feature, so listeners expected it to be available on their devices soon, but it hasn’t.
AI DJs play not only the latest songs, but also old favorites, and sometimes songs you haven’t heard in years.
As a result, everyone is excited about this new feature and wants to test it themselves. This desire to use AI DJ is fueled by its early positive reviews.
I’m so mad I still don’t have a Spotify AI DJ.I’m sure they will hate me, but I still want to play
So can’t you find this @Spotify AI DJ? I saw your music feed and updated the app…what am I missing @SpotifyCares??
But Spotify says the reason the feature isn’t available is because of a gradual rollout, which means the feature will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
Still, if you still can’t use the new Spotify AI DJ feature, you can try:
1. Make sure your Spotify app is up to date. The AI DJ feature is only available in the latest version of the Spotify app, so please check if there is a pending app update and install it.
2. Check if the feature is enabled in your account. Make sure the AI DJ feature is enabled in your account. Go to your account settings, select “Playback” and make sure the “AI DJ” toggle is on.
3. Try logging out and back in: Logging out of your Spotify account and logging back in may refresh your account settings and give you access to new features.
