Spotify Tipped to Be Working on ‘Advanced Mixing Tools’ Features for Playlists

Technology


Spotify is said to be working on a new feature that will allow users to remix their playlists using “advanced mixing tools”. Mixing tools could allow users to add different transition styles as well as sequence tracks with a similar key, tempo and style. These features could be part of the company's rumored premium Music Pro plan, whose main appeal is said to be the offering of lossless music. Notably, last week the music streaming giant rolled out a new AI feature that will allow users to create personalized playlists just by entering text messages.

The information about the new blending tools comes from a Threads post by tipster Chris Messina (via TechCrunch ), who found strings of code in the latest beta that reveal what these supposed blending tools can do. Based on the screenshots shared by Messina, the feature will allow users to “Flex your DJ skills with different transition styles to create the ultimate mix.”

But not only transitional styles will be offered, according to the insider. Other code examples state: “Automatically reorder your mix by sequencing tracks with similar key, tempo, and style.” This feature could allow users to fine-tune their entire playlist without much effort. Mentions of “advanced mixing tools” were also spotted, suggesting that users could also gain granular control of DJ-like features for manipulating tracks with beats and more. Users could potentially also speed up songs, also known as night songs, which have become popular in recent years.

These features could be offered with Spotify's rumored Music Pro plan. According to a post by Reddit user Hypixely, who found code samples related to a new premium tier, the main draw of the plan could be lossless music with FLAC up to 24-bit/44.1kHz. The whistleblower also claims that rather than being a standalone subscription tier, it will be offered as an add-on that users can bundle on top of their existing plan. Years ago, Spotify HiFi was rumored to offer lossless music, but the feature never made it to the streaming platform.

Messina, in a recent post, claimed that Spotify has already started rolling out the Music Pro add-on to users through the Connection menu. Screenshots shared by the whistleblower reveal a new option that says “Lose yourself in Lossless” and describes the feature as “Your favorite music in 16-bit and 24-bit high-fidelity sound.” The whistleblower revealed that the streaming quality will depend on the device. Messina said he had access to the feature despite not updating or changing his plan. It's unclear whether Spotify will charge users for this feature.
