Spotify utilizes all kinds of futuristic machine learning algorithms to recommend music to its listeners, but the streaming service rolled out a new feature this month that makes use of its human touch. The app is accessible through the desktop app by clicking the three dots next to the album, song or artist and choosing the "suggest an edit" option. However, they won't be able to correct song or album titles, even if they're wrong or contain "extra messy information", Spotify says. "This will help us improve, extend, and confirm the metadata Spotify saves", says Spotify, "which will in turn help us improve user experiences and create a more comprehensive ecosystem for Artists & Creators".
Beyond contributing data by searching for artists from the Line-In homepage, users also can opt to take quizzes to share their knowledge or track mood or explicitness, while contributing data.
