Thanks for hunting @alin23 @mssandu, I'm a fan of the Discover Weekly recommendations. How does your product take personalization even further than that?
Alin PanaitiuMaker@alin23 · Fullstack Developer / Noiseblend Founder
Hi @abadesi! I'm a fan of Discover weekly myself! ✨ But I can't rely on it for specific activities like reading or working out for example. Yes, I know that there are quite a lot of playlists for those activities, but I wanted something more personal. That's what Noiseblend gives you, always-fresh playlists generated using the same technologies that Discover Weekly uses, based on what you like to listen on that specific occasion. That, and an easy way to customize those recommendations based on attributes such as Danceability 💃 or Acousticness 🎸. Of course, this wouldn't have been possible without the powerful API that Spotify provides. We're not reinventing another AI, just borrowing theirs 😄

@abadesi @alin23 Love the UI! When you say "borrowing theirs" for the AI, are you doing any playlist manipulation on your end? Or are you using a Spotify Endpoint that crafts a playlist based off of some parameter?
Alin PanaitiuMaker@alin23 · Fullstack Developer / Noiseblend Founder
@kevinguebert We're mostly using the Spotify `/recommendations` endpoint for the playlist generation. We're also doing some basic playlist manipulation like a custom ordering algorithm and some fiddling with the seed parameters for `/recommendations`. But no machine learning stuff is done on our part. This would require a huge database with user behavior data and I'm trying to keep as little data as possible about the users.

@alin23 Awesome work! Thanks for sharing!

What is the point of this ? another UI to the same features and playlists on Spotify?
Alin PanaitiuMaker@alin23 · Fullstack Developer / Noiseblend Founder
Hi @wassim_zoghlami ! Yes, you can categorize it as "just an UI" for some Spotify features. But for the less easily accessible ones like: • Tuneable Attributes • Recommendations by multiple artists • Algorithmically created playlists such as "The Sound of " The point is that I really liked how many awesome things you can do with the Spotify API, and wanted to share this ability with less tech savvy users also

@wassim_zoghlami @alin23 I love that approach — giving deep API abilities a beautiful, usable interface. Kudos.

Can't connect my Spotify Premium: Internal service error?
Șerban SanduMaker@mssandu
@reymarr_zamora_hijara Hi! We are experiencing some problems with our database and we'll be back as soon as possible. We are really sorry for this!
Alin PanaitiuMaker@alin23 · Fullstack Developer / Noiseblend Founder
@reymarr_zamora_hijara I'm still working on fixing all the errors. There's a database connection limit that breaks the service from time to time. I'm hoping on fixing it today.

@alin23 Aight. Standing by...
Alin PanaitiuMaker@alin23 · Fullstack Developer / Noiseblend Founder
@reymarr_zamora_hijara the database problem and other small issues have been resolved. You can use the app now 😇 Though there are still some issues for users where Spotify just launched and most of the recommendations come as not playable for their country ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Still, if you experience any error/issue, please tell us how it happened because sometimes your words can be much more helpful than an error traceback. We simply cannot predict all the use cases from the start.

Setup the bookmarks but eveytime I launch one I am getting individual artist albums?
Alin PanaitiuMaker@alin23 · Fullstack Developer / Noiseblend Founder
@jfinkelstein What you are seeing is the album of the first track generated. This is the only way I could open up the Spotify app through a URI, by opening a specific album or artist. But if you'll look in the queue, you'll see that there are songs that won't be from that album. Those are the blend tracks. Sorry if this sounds misleading, Spotify doesn't give me a way to open the queue with an URI so I had to find a workaround.

Somewhat related (I was hoping this would solve it)… I haven't been able to find an app to present Now Playing music in a more visual, playing-on-an-iPad-in-the-kitchen-in-the-background way. Sort of like the music visualizers of yesteryear, but probably way more simple and elegant. I thought MusicMatch might do it, but no, it's really just about lyrics. Anyone found anything like that?
