Ever been asked by someone “So what kind of music do you listen to?” and feel a dread run through you? And it is a dread because, you know 1) it’s a loaded question that the asker, who obviously assumes they have superior cultural tastes, only asks so they can silently judge you before telling you what good music is, and 2) because despite whatever answer you make up on the spot, you know the real answer is “the soundtrack to the godawful 2019 Cats remake over and over again.”
Well, then you’re going to love this bot created by the folks at The Pudding. Instead of some snooty human wanting to “educate” you on appropriate musical tastes, you can now let an AI simply tear those tastes down. The AI-powered “Judge Your Spotify” bot goes through your Spotify history before summarily launching a verbal assault on your pathetic tastes. If you’ve ever used the snarky weather app, Carrot Weather, this bot is that meets Spotify Wrapped.
You can use the bot by going here and logging into your Spotify account when asked. Then be prepared for a barrage of put-downs. But do keep in mind that the bot has apparently been more popular than expected—thus its creator has acknowledged that it’s been crashing a lot, but the hope is that it will be fixed soon. In the meantime, you can peruse the following tweets featuring some of the roasts that this judgmental bot has already unleashed on people.
