Spotify quiz uses algorithms to recommend the perfect podcasts

Spotify helps its users in some markets find new podcasts they’re likely to enjoy supported their tastes. The corporate has introduced a replacement recommendation tool called Find the One that asks users to answer a couple of questions, then shows them a podcast show recommendation they’ll enjoy supported their music preferences.

Spotify‘s Find the One online quiz asks only a couple of questions, each associated with the solution you provided for the preceding question. The answers narrow down the podcasts you’ll enjoy support your responses, including whether you favor more light-hearted or serious audio shows and, therefore, the topics you favor.

Users who aren’t curious about the recommended show can choose a ‘Show me more’ option for a few other podcast recommendations. There’s also the choice to retake the quiz, which arguably isn’t too compatible with seeking out new shows — the questions are broad, and given how few responses you provide, it looks like only an honest thanks to potentially find a replacement show.

Likewise, the recommended shows appear to be large, popular offerings, ones diehard podcast fans have probably already heard of like “Radiolab” and “My Favorite Murder.” Assuming the recommendations aren’t to your liking, there’s a tab menu where users can narrow down recommendations manually by selecting different genres.

According to Spotify, its algorithms have amassed enough data to seek out that music tastes and podcasts preferences are often linked. For instance, pop fans are more likely to concentrate on speaking shows, whereas BTS and Queen fans mostly list podcasts about those artists.
