Regarding the "Recommended songs" that is supposed to be based on the songs in the playlist.
The idea behind the feature is very good, but it does not work, probably due to a badly tuned algorithm.
I went thru about 30-40 of the suggestions given and did not like none of them. This has an opposite effect, giving a really bad user experience.
Bad enough to write this suggestion immediately...
Add Like and Dislike vote.
Add the possibility to mark the suggested songs with a like/dislike vote option (without the need to add it to a playlist if liked) and use it in the selection. There are three types of songs; "liked", "disliked" and "unknown", today the decision appear only based on "added" and "starred"...
Taking into consideration time that a new song is played more frequently, to avoid giving it to much weight.
Also lowering the weight on Genre, it is to rough sometimes. More on the music content/data itsel; tones, beats, tempo, instruments, vocals, and so on. Similar to Sony 12-tone.
