When listening to music, do you skip through song after song, just trying to find a song that will perfectly match your mood?

With Spotify’s new update, this will be a problem of the past – the music streaming service will allow users to sort through their song library with mood and genre filters.

This new feature, which is currently not available in Singapore, lets users with over 30 tracks in their “Liked Songs” library filter their favourite songs. The filters will be personalised based on the prevalent songs in the user’s existing collection.

Each user will have up to 15 personalised mood and genre categories.

When the feature is rolled out in Singapore, users can access it by going to the “Liked Songs” library and tapping one of the filters at the top of the playlist header. If they wish to return to their usual “Liked Songs” collection, they can disable the filter by tapping on its “X” button.

The feature is available to Free and Premium listeners on both iOS and Android devices. However, it currently cannot be accessed on Spotify’s web player or desktop application.

According to Spotify, the update has already been implemented in some English-speaking countries including the United States, Canada and Australia. As it has received positive response in those countries, we hope that it will make its way to Singapore soon.
