Songza recently updated their service to provide a very unique take on suggested music. Users can now opt to let Songza offer up music based on weather, using The Weather Channel as their back-end solution. Already good at suggesting the right music for an occasion, Songza just got a lot better.
Rather than just offer up music based on the weather as a standard, Songza will do what it always does — ask you to give it direction. Songza tells you generic info about the weather (raining, thunderstorm, bright and sunny…), then asks what you’d like to hear in that circumstance. From there, Songza knows you are only happy when it rains, or that you’re in need of a pick-me-up when it’s dreary out.
Songza is unique in that it forgoes standard algorithmic suggestions, instead opting to let you guide the tempo. In simpler terms, you are the one creating your own algorithm, and it’s personalized to you. Among streaming music providers, Songza is easily the more customizable of the flock.
The update is rolling out incrementally, so be on the lookout for it. We like Songza for its take on bringing us what we want, when we want it. It takes a bit more work than other apps, but once you get it trained to do as you like, it’s well worth it. The Play Store listing hasn’t yet been updated to reflect the change, but Songza has made it official.
