I sent this over to spotify on twitter as feedback and i am posting it here to see what others think.
"okay i will start by saying i love the idea. i have been using it quite a bit and always get excited to hear what songs are chosen. but there are a few things i would like to point out
for starters, i find myself skipping a lot of the tracks or hitting the reshuffle. I listen to a lot of different genres and sometimes will play a playlist for pop punk or 2010s pop depending on what i am doing. but when i use the DJ, i get a lot of pop punk and normally dont want to listen to it. so i skip it until I go back to the EDM songs that i would like to hear.
the second thing is the feature is quite glitchy. when I listen to the DJ, if i play another song or playlist and go back to the DJ, it will start from the beginning of the DJ instead of picking up where i left off. this is my biggest complaint about the feature by far. I was also listening to the DJ yesterday and ended up going through all of the music so it would only loop back from the beginning instead of continuing to play other songs.
one last thing is mostly for EDM. sometimes the genres that are chosen are not represented well. one example is the first song was from quiet bison, who does future bass, and then it started playing kayzo next after that song, which is heavy dubstep. this is mostly just a nit pick but is still something i would like to point out.
my ideas to fix these issues start with the first complaint. being able to choose what genres you want to listen to in the DJ would go a long way, or maybe asking which artists you would prefer to hear. cause most days i would only want to listen to EDM genres and i will get pop punk, punk, kpop and metal all back to back (even when i only listen to those genres on occasion)
the second fix i would put forward is having the DJ continuously choose songs instead of having a set list and nothing more. it seems like that sort of technology is already in spotify since it is in things like enhanced playlists and also recommended songs for playlists.
lastly the fix for having the DJ start from the beginning should be addressed. if only one thing is taken from all of this, that should be the first priority."
