Apple Music Gains New Algorithmic 'Discovery Station'

Apple Music today gained a new "Discovery Station," which is located under the "Listen Now" section under Top Picks in the ‌Apple Music‌ app. The customized radio station is paired with the personalized radio station featuring your name, and it has the "Made for You" label.

As noted by AppleInsider, the radio station appears to play songs of a similar style to songs that are in your personal library and that you have listened to and liked in the past, but it chooses songs you don't have in playlists or your library.

There is no documentation on the Discovery Station as of yet, so full details on how the algorithm works to suggest music are unknown. Apple may promote the Discovery Station at some point in the future, but from our testing, it looks like a good way to discover music that is suited to your individual taste.

Been listening for about 25 minutes and every song has been a new "Add to library" and "Love" for me. It's SPOT on! Loving it so far!

Its recommendations are pretty terrible for me. Completely irrelevant to what I listen to. Makes me wonder whether I’m listening to Juli Clover’s? Hahaha

Edit. I saw the station in the app and its recommendations were relevant when I opened it from there.

From the AppleInsider article: "It seems that Siri isn't yet aware of this new radio station." No surprise here.

I've been growing my library since 2003, literally 20 years, and so far this algo has been pulling from the earliest songs in there and I'm dying. AM I NOT ALLOWED TO CHANGE? Can I make it just look at my newest 200-300 songs???
