New AI Bot Will Roast Your Spotify Habits

Get ready to be judged.

POSTEDBYMARESE O'HAGAN

A bot developed by digital publication The Pudding has been trained to relentlessly ridicule your Spotify listens.

An evil cousin to Spotify Wrapped, How Bad Is Your Spotify provides users with snarky judgements such as, “Your music taste is bad.” and “You’re stuck in the early 2010s."

The app was integrated with over two million “indicators of good music”, from aggregator websites to discussion forums.

If you feel brave enough to try the bot, you must sign in with your Spotify account. 

I was criticized for being a secret Kanye West consumer. That’s fair. I’ll take that. The bot then asked me if I was ok. I am, thanks for asking.

After a bit more prodding, my results were in! My music taste is bad. It’s ok. I can live with that. And not just bad either. Balding-Weezer-fan bad. Nineties-dorm-room bad.

I’m also 22% basic. That actually surprised me- I thought I was more.

Overall, I thought the bot was a little impersonal. But it achieved its main goal: I now feel thoroughly less confident about my music taste. Thanks bot!
