Spotify continues to personalize content delivery for its Premium subscribers with the launch of a new DJ feature.

The new feature expands upon existing customized playlists such as Discover Weekly and the annual Wrapped summary.
The Spotify app includes many settings to customize the experience and control how much data is used while listening.
