Let Petey be your personal DJ: AI-powered app creates playlists for Apple Music users

Petey, the AI-powered mobile app that made waves when it first introduced ChatGPT to Apple Watch users, has just added a new feature that will make music lovers everywhere rejoice. The latest update to the app now allows users to connect to Apple Music, making it easier than ever to create custom playlists and add individual songs to their libraries.

The new feature is just one of many that have been added to Petey, including the ability to access the latest AI model, GPT-4, through a paid “Petey Premium” subscription. With this new update, Petey continues to cement its place as one of the most innovative and useful AI apps available on the market today.

Using Petey to get music recommendations is a breeze. Simply type your request for a playlist into the app’s interface, and Petey will return a list of songs that match your criteria. For example, a request for 90s grunge will return expected results like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, and others.

Petey will then provide short previews of each recommended song below the returned playlist, allowing you to scroll through and sample each one. If you like the song, you can tap on the three-dot “more” menu next to the song to either listen to the full version in Apple Music or save the track to your Library.

But Petey doesn’t stop there. You can also tap to “learn more” about the song, which opens NowPlaying, Petey developer Hidde van der Ploeg’s liner notes iOS app that offers various facts and details about songs, records, and artists.

Beyond saving individual songs to your Apple Music Library, Petey also offers the option to create a playlist. With a tap of the “Create Playlist” button, users can give the AI-built playlist a name, then open it up in Apple Music’s app and begin listening.

Of course, these features require users to have an Apple Music subscription, as the service doesn’t have a free tier. Users also have to have either a Basic or Premium subscription to use Petey on iOS, or they can use their own OpenAI API key.

Other updates that are rolling out today alongside the Apple Music integrations and support for GPT-4 include other payment options for the Petey Basic subscription, alternative app icons, and the ability to send messages to your phone from Apple Watch, even if you don’t have a Basic subscription or your own API key.

Petey is a free download from the App Store, but it requires a subscription to use its features on iPhone. The app is gaining a bit of a following, as it’s now seen 24.7,000 total installs since its Apple Watch-only launch on March 8. The iPhone version has been out only since April 6. With Petey’s constant updates and new features, it’s clear that this AI app is here to stay.
