In this article, you will learn how to fill Your Music with awesome content that fits your business at all times.
Below you can find the following topics:

Our library contains 350+ playlists curated by our experts. Organized around a music genre or theme, each playlist can provide dozens of hours of music and contains a balanced mix of hits and lesser-known songs to generate the maximum benefit to your business.
Our Ready-made playlists automatically update on a weekly basis to guarantee fresh content!
Here is how you can find and save them into Your Music:
- Go to the Discover page in the top menu
- Use the search bar on the right-hand side if you are looking for something specific, or explore the Discover page - scrolling down you can also find them divided per businesses, decades, genres, etc.
- Once you find what you are looking for, you can save it to Your Music or press play from the three dots on the upper right corner of the playlist’s cover.
- Due to their core concept, some ready-made playlists don’t update as much as others. For example: playlists with hits of specific decades (e.g. Hits of the 80s), top charts, or holiday-themed music.
On the Discover page, type in a name to get an AI-generated station of songs by that artist and artists producing similar music. It's like your favorite musicians suddenly recorded more albums at the click of a button.
- Go to the Discover page in the top menu and locate the search bar on the right-hand side
- Search for the artist and your station will be created. You can save it to Your Music, use it in schedules, or just press play.

It is important to keep in mind your business type and the general ambiance you want to present to your customers. For example, for your rock bar, you might select high-energy rock and perhaps even a certain decade. If you own a spa, you might avoid selecting a “rugged” or “expressive” sound.

- Select the option to create a station from tags.
- Select in the ingredients - Energy, Genre, Sound, and Decade. In this step, you will also be able to choose if you want to allow explicit content or not.
