Spotify is looking to stream songs according to the user’s emotional state. The streaming giant has just filed a patent for the latest technology that figures out your “emotional state, gender, age or accent,” placed on your speech and will curate music based on those factors.
Spotify allegedly filled the patent more than Three years ago. It detects “intonation, stress, rhythm and the likes of units of speech,” all while scrutinizing background noise to conclude whether the user is alone or with someone. The patent was filled because Spotify believed that the current system wasn’t well equipped to suggest songs.
The patent cites, “What is needed is an entirely different approach to collecting taste attributes of a user, particularly one that is rooted in technology so that the above-described human activity (e.g., requiring a user to provide input) is at least partially eliminated and performed more efficiently.”
The isn’t much news available on when the new technology will be ready to use by streamers. However, As per Spotify’s nature, the company doesn’t necessarily launch the product it files patent for. So we recommend you to stay tuned till further announcement confirms the report.
