Discover Weekly is one of Spotify's best and most unique features, serving up a personalized playlist full of artists you probably haven't listened to before. But what happens toward the end of the week, once you've cycled through its recommendations a few times? Enter Release Radar, a new playlist that drops every Friday. The personalised mixtape, which sits in the Discover section, will offer a collection of brand-new releases from artists you follow or listen to regularly. Spotify says it'll also throw in some "new discoveries" which, similar to Discover Weekly, are based on your listening habits inside the app. It could be a handy new feature, provided your favorite artists aren't those signing exclusives with Apple Music.
