Spotify debuted its AI DJ feature in beta form in certain regions in 2023 and it’s a handy way to let the music play without searching for the next song or always listening to the same playlists. Here’s how to get your own DJ working inside Spotify in a few steps.

The AI DJ combines all the Spotify smarts we’ve come to love to deliver users a personalised DJ experience that caters to your music taste.
