Google Play Music introduced and tested the ‘New Release Radio’ feature on the Samsung’s new flagship last month as part of their global partnership, and the same feature has now been rolled out globally to all its app users on Android.
The New Release Radio is a new radio station being rolled out by Google in its Play Music app which will play new releases, based on the recommendation from your choice of music recently.
The app will make use of machine learning tech to adapt to the music taste of its users, playing songs from a similar genre or artist whenever the radio is turned on.
“Whether you’re relaxing at the beach or taking a road trip, Google Play Music delivers personalised music based on where you are and why you are listening. New Release Radio will serve you new releases based on your personal tastes, so you can stay up to date with the freshest tunes,” Google stated.
Once accustomed to a user’s musical preferences, the station uses machine learning to determine which of the singles and albums from the past two weeks will be best suited to the user’s taste.
This makes for a quick and largely efficient way to discover the latest music tracks that you might like.
The New Release Radio station can be found in the Google Play Music app — simply search for it — and is available for a free 30-day trial after which users will be charged Rs 99 per month.
Since the New Release Radio is being launched globally, it’ll contain a huge repository of new songs which will be updated constantly — helping you explore music across genres, languages and nations.
The Google Play music subscription was only launched in India in April 2017, although the app had been around for a long long time, it only worked as a music player for songs on the phone storage.
