SPOTIFY RIVAL ANGHAMI DOUBLES DOWN ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WITH AI-POWERED PODCAST AND NEWSROOM
Have you heard of Anghami? If not, it’s the Middle East/North Africa’s rival platform to Spotify, and recently they’ve been really shifting their focus to AI-driven technology. They’ve recently released a few new features that take advantage of this technology: “Personalized Podcast” and “AI Newsroom”.
The Podcast feature will allow users to make and customize their own personalized podcast by selecting specific curated topics, voices, and several different languages.
AI Newsroom, (which is using only AI) is a feature that is able to research and curate topics specifically geared toward the user related to previous news and algorithms based on relevant topics.
We view this as exciting new technology and are very interested to see how this influences other streaming platforms like Spotify to see if they choose to adopt any of these types of AI-driven features in the future.
