Spotify to begin testing new ‘Your Offline Mix’ feature
Information has recently been released that Spotify will be testing a new offline feature that will give users a more personalized experience than ever before.
Reports on Twitter from Spotify founder Daniel EK have stated that the music streaming giant is set to begin testing its new feature called “Your Offline Mix,” which will now expand the offline features of the service to your personal library. The “Your Offline Mix” will differ from the well-known offline download option that Spotify has had since its earliest days. “Your Offline Mix” will now automatically take your recently played songs and put them into a mix without you having to remember to download it. Previously, users had to manually download all the music they wanted to listen to offline.
“[It is] a playlist designed for those times when you might not be online” – Spotify Founder and CEO, Daniel EK
If you are questioning if you have heard of this type of feature before, that’s because you have. Spotify competitor YouTube Music has had this specific option for subscribers since 2019. YouTube Music’s created “offline library mix” will automatically download up to 500 tracks from a listener’s library and then regularly update the list when connected to Wi-Fi.
It is still not clear when this feature will officially be available for users worldwide as Daniel EK’s tweet did not disclose much information outside of the announcement itself. However, some have mentioned on Twitter that they have already seen it in their apps.
