Vevo's app can use your Spotify account to give better recommendations

Final yr, Vevo rolled out a brand new iOS app that permit customers decide their favourite artists as a part of an onboarding course of meant to offer higher custom-made music suggestions (it later introduced the identical expertise to Android). Within the time I’ve spent with Vevo’s apps these days, I’ve discovered they work properly — so long as you are a prime forty music fan. However going by means of that onboarding course of is a reasonably large ache level should you’re a fan of music even barely outdoors the mainstream; you simply will not possible discover many bands or singers you care about.

Fortuitously, that is altering at present. A brand new replace rolling out to the Android app (iOS will comply with within the subsequent week or so) tweaks the onboarding course of so you will get rather more related outcomes, no matter what genres you are a fan of.

The most important change is that you’re going to begin off choosing your favourite genres, not artists. The anticipated choices like pop, nation, hip-hop, indie and so forth will all be proven to you, and when you decide your favorites there you possibly can dive into choosing particular artists. It is a completely logical method to undergo the method of getting arrange with a music app (Apple Music has an analogous system in place), and it is just a little shocking that it wasn’t there at launch.

That is not the one new function to make discovering music you care about simpler. Vevo can now hyperlink up together with your Spotify, Twitter and YouTube accounts and routinely import the artists you comply with on these platforms. That’ll show you how to get higher suggestions on Vevo and shortly have a profile crammed out with music that you simply care about. And this new function will definitely be useful to customers when the corporate’s subscription product rolls out later this yr.

Vevo says the social connection options will stay a cellular-solely function, at the least for now, however the onboarding course of will come to its Apple TV app ultimately. Within the meantime, although, any modifications you make on the cellular apps will probably be mirrored throughout your account, so the Apple TV app will stay updated. If you wish to give these new includes a shot, the Android app must be within the Google Play Retailer at this time.
