Google Play Music, Google’s music streaming service, is getting smarter. An update to the Google Play Music app will kick in a new feature that can predict what you want to hear next.
In fact, Google is so confident in the app’s accuracy, that it completely revamped the welcome screen on Play Music so you can just tap to start listening to a playlist suited for you based on the time, your location, and a variety of other factors.
Google says it’s able to accomplish this through machine learning, the technology that’s starting to power a lot of intelligent services Google makes like Google Photos and the new Google Assistant. It also plays into Google’s broader mission to use machine learning and artificial intelligence in all of its products.
