Drivers can discover new songs on the radio and in the Cloud, and rediscover songs buried in their own collection.
Playlisting is becoming more important as music collections get bigger and bigger. Gracenote “More Like This” creates killer playlists by tapping into the current song playing, and finding similar songs based on Genre, Era, Origin, Artist Type, in addition to Mood and Tempo.
Music is a powerful medium. It can help shape the mood of a drive to the office or a long road trip. Gracenote MoodGrid™ organizes songs by their mood characteristics, mapping them from “calm” to “energetic” and “dark” to “positive.” Drivers can create great playlists to match every mood – upbeat, somber and everything in between.
Gracenote MoodGrid is a new feature for automakers beginning in model year 2014. The technology is currently featured in the HABU Music App for iOS and Android.
