Apple has released a new ‘Discovery Station’ on Apple Music, designed to help users find music similar to their taste that they haven’t listened to or added to their playlist before. Previously in testing, Discovery Station is currently available to almost all users on Apple Music’s mobile, desktop, and web apps, around the world.
The station can be accessed from ‘Listen Now’ below the ‘Stations for You’ section. According to some reviews, Discovery Station seems to be doing a good job at recommending the kind of music that people would expect to find for themselves.
In a way, Discovery Station’s algorithm works in alignment with users’ existing personalized station. The visual design of the icon of users’ personalized station has also been altered to match Discovery Station’s icon.
