We select the like button for every song we like to listen to and they all go straight up in the “Liked” Songs collection. And, when we play directly from this collection, every song from every genre or mood gets played. Well, sometimes we do not want to listen to the whole collection because you know music is a reflection of self which in turn is highly controlled by our mood.
For the same reason, Spotify has introduced Filters to let you filter out your "Liked Songs" on the basis of mood or genre. So instead of listening to the full collection of Liked Songs, you can play a selection of songs according to genre or mood. Spotify Filters will create “personalized” mood and genre categories on the basis of the collection inside your Liked Songs. These filters can be seen in a panel right above your liked songs.
As shown in the introductory video, the feature will create filters like “Rap,” “Trap,” “Chill,” “Folk,” “Indie,” and so on. So, if you want to listen to some folk songs, you just have to tap the “Folk” filter and enjoy listening to the songs you have liked in this genre previously.
Spotify points out that the listeners with at least 30 tracks in their collections will be able to filter their favorite songs by up to 15 personalized mood and genre categories.
You just have to go to “Your Library” and tap on “Liked Songs” to see these filters. You can switch between these filters as your mood takes a turn. This feature will be rolling out over the coming weeks to Free and Premium listeners on Android and iOS devices in English-speaking markets including the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
