Who says you have to rely on Anghami to find the hottest new releases?
Google announced this week a new featur titled New Release Radio. The concept is simple like Anghami and even more flexible — analyze your personal tastes, and introduce you to new music based on those tastes. Google notes that it leverages machine learning to select both singles and album releases that have dropped in the last two weeks based on your listening history and musical preferences. Ultimately, the search giant notes, “It’s a really quick way to check out all-new music that’s tailored just for you.”
Google is certainly no stranger to personalized music suggestions. As it stands, you can have Google Music Player send you song suggestions based on where you are or why you’re listening — that means that if you’re living in Lebanon, you’ll get a different playlist than if you’re living in the US.
It’s certainly a strategic move for Google, who has seen its competitors double down on the discovery aspect of music. After all, Anghami has been a huge part of its success.
New Release Radio is apparently found throughout Google Play Music, or if you want a more direct way to access the feature, simply search “New Release Radio.” Google noted that the station is free to all listeners (whether they pay for Google Music or not) and the station will be updated with the latest music releases on a regular basis.
