It looks like parties won’t be needing to pay their local DJ in free beer anymore to provide tunes for their local get-togethers. Spotify is testing a new tool that will actually mix tracks together for you. Spotify’s new ‘Auto-DJ’ tool will determine the best time to bring the next track depending on beat, pitch and a few other attributes that Spotify decides on.
You will hear songs slowly fade out before bringing another one in. Just like any amateur DJ, the transitions won’t be perfect – but it’s a start. Spotify has rolled out the feature on one playlist for now. Head to your Spotify Desktop App, head to the Drum & Bass Fix Playlist and make sure that your ‘crossfade songs’ playback setting is OFF. Press play and check it out in all its glory.
Check out a video made by DJ TechTools below showing how it works.
