In a bid to enhance music listeners’ experience, Google has added a new feature to ‘Google Play Music’ which would deliver personalised music based on users’ preferences. Called ‘New Release Radio,’ the feature uses machine learning to select singles and album releases from the past two weeks based on the user’s listening history and musical preferences, according to a Google blog.

Google, in partnership with Samsung, released the update on Samsung smartphones and tablets earlier this year through an ‘early access programme’. Based on the positive user-feedback gathered through the programme, Google has now rolled it out for all on ‘Play Music’.

The station ‘New Release Radio’ is available to free radio listeners as well as subscribers globally and will be constantly updated with the latest releases, the company said.

Google Play Music has offered New Release Radio exclusively on the Galaxy S8 as an “early access feature” since June. The station will work similarly to Spotify’s Release Radar, by offering you a personalized stream of music based on your tastes.

That’s changing this week, though, as Google announced that it’s opening up New Release Radio to all Google Play Music users. According to Google, New Release Radio uses your listening preferences to select tracks from recent singles and album releases from the last two weeks, curating a constantly updated station of new music for you.

New Release Radio is available to all Google Play Music users, too. So, whether you’re a free radio listener or a paying subscriber, you’ll be able to take advantage of the new feature. The station will update itself daily, so you’ll always have something new to listen to. (Release Rader on Spotify only updates once a week.)
