Starting today, Google is rolling out an updated version of Google Play Music, its streaming music service. The company says that the update sees the use of machine learning to create contextual playlists based on where listeners are and what they are doing.
The latest version of Google Play Music is more "assistive" than ever, with Google making much of the personalized playlists it is able to automatically create.
Playlists are created based on a number of "signals". As well as taking into account the types of music you listen to most frequently, how the weather is like, what activity is underway, and where you are.
Google explains that music will always be available to subscribers thanks to offline synchronization:
No connection? Lost in the desert? No problem. Well... except for the lost part (try Google Maps for that). When you subscribe, you'll always be prepped with an offline playlist based on what you’ve listened to recently. As long as you remember to charge your phone, you'll have your favorite tunes, even if you forgot to download them ahead of time.
