Smarter Playlists – My Top Tracks

I’ve just added a new Smarter Playlists component called My Top Tracks. This track source will generate a list of the top 50 tracks from your recent listening history.  You can choose from 3 different time ranges:

  • short term – the last month or so
  • medium term – the last half year or so
  • long term – the last several years

The component configuration looks like this:

Here’s an example program using the new component to surface up tracks that I’ve listened to a lot in the past that haven’t been getting a lot of play time in the last half-year.

Feel free to try out the new component and send me feedback via the google group.

update – to use the new component, you will need to logout and then log back into SmarterPlaylists to grant it the extra permissions it needs to read your recent play history.

    I didn’t even know this was a feature in the API. Recent addition? You’re really burning it up with the updates. I think Smarter Playlists is one of the most flexible and best things to ever come out of the API.

      thanks. I do get some access to some experimental APIs. Lucky me!
