Day 4 - Music Connect
Thesis: music recommendations from people with similar taste are always better than algorithmic suggestions
Objective: design new Apple Music feature focused on exploring what people around listen to, enable connection based on taste in music
Outcome: new "Connect" tab in Apple Music interface that lets you see and hear what people nearby like in music, then follow or share music with them. "Tune In" feature lets you listen to their playlist in real time, "Musical Touch" is a fun and creative way to compose and share a melody
Explore. Connect. Tune in.
See what people around you are listening to. The bigger their presence on your explore feed, the bigger the match in your musical preferences. Tap to see their profile, where you can find out what they are listening to now, follow them, start a conversation, or tune in to start playing their playlist in real time.
And to add a little joy to the exchange, the redesigned digital touch can be used as a way to let them guess the song, or create a little beat just for them, with the simple interface accessible to musical amateurs like me, or someone that knows what they are doing.
