It's easy for algorithms to create a random playlist based on an artist you like. Unlike most apps, Moodify wants to create a truly personalized playlist, based on the features you want right in the songs.

So here are the music features or parameters that can be adjusted for Moodify to create playlists that match:

  1. Acousticness (digital - digital, mix, analog)
  2. Instrumentalness (vocals - the vocal part is main, there may be accompanying instruments, mix, no vocals - no singing, only the instrument sounds)
  3. Tempo (50 - 200 beats per minute)
  4. Danceability (not suitable, quite good to dance, great to dance)
  5. Energy (mellow, fun, energetic)
  6. Mood (sad, happy, joyful)

In addition to the above parameters, you can use Moodify to find songs similar to some of your favorite tracks. Search for them in the box provided and select from the Spotify results.

When you click the Create Playlist button , the new playlist will appear in the Spotify app under the name 'Discover Moodify' . If you like, change the name to save it and use it in the future or make a copy. Before using Moodify again, delete this playlist or new songs will be added to it.

MagicPlaylist is not a complicated algorithm. The developer said it works by finding the original music you like, related artists and adding top songs of these artists.
