Nokia released an updated Nokia Music app last week that featured an option where you can scan your phones music collection to update your music profile with Nokia to improve recommendations. They detailed the new feature today.
Nokia Music can intelligently assess people’s music preferences and past listening history to build up a profile of their likes and dislikes with minimal effort on the user’s part. The latest version now allows users to scan the music collection directly on their Nokia Lumia smartphone to create or update their music profile. There is also a separate scanner application which allows users to update their music profile by scanning the collection on their PC or Mac.
The music profile will work across different Windows platforms, from Windows Phone to Windows 8 and the web store- so you can build up a profile in your Nokia Music account and access it anywhere you want.
Daniel Roberts and Martin Banham from Nokia Music described this new feature as below,
“We want to make music discovery and playback as personalised and intuitive as possible. Personalisation is a key part of our road map and we are currently developing contextualized experiences based on each user’s unique taste in music. We’re really excited about this.”
