Now that there are some big players in the music subscription industry, Spotify is continuing to improve its service with a new feature called 'Discover Weekly.'

What this means is that each Monday, users can expect to log in and find a completely new playlist of songs curated just for them. This computer-generated playlist is put together using listening history on Spotify, as well as genres, songs and artists favored by similar users on the music platform.

Although there will be an emphasis on new releases, Spotify also includes a good mix of oldies as well. In order to make it easy to discover new music, Spotify does most of the heavy lifting for its users.
