Will future music playlists be customized to the tone of your voice? 

Feb 01 2021

Will future music playlists be customized to the tone of your voice? This month, Spotify was approved for a patent with technology that “aims to use recordings of users’ speech and background noise to determine what kind of music to curate to recommend.” According to the patent, the potential uses of the tech will involve extracting “intonation, stress, rhythm, and the likes of units of speech” from the user’s voice. It would also potentially use speech recognition to identify “metadata points” like emotional state, gender, age, accent, and environment to determine whether a listener is alone or with others—all based on an audio recording.
