Volumio Introduces Supersearch: Music Discovery with AI Search Technology


There’s been a recent buzz about Artificial Intelligence and its potential to revolutionize our world. The tireless minds at Volumio have harnessed this power to elevate musical experiences. Over the past months, we’ve woven OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology into the very fabric of Volumio. Making Volumio one of the first music apps to integrate an AI search function within its interface
So, please welcome Volumio’s new release: Volumio AI.
The first beta release of Volumio’s integrated AI search occurred in early June. Our Volumio Community shared their experience and feedback. This helped us improve the release as much as we could before launching. It’s important to note, however, that this feature set will keep on improving over time, so make sure you let us know your feedback on the Volumio Community thread.

Supersearch: The AI Search Where Music Meets Curiosity


Picture this: you’re in the mood for some tunes, and instead of a regular search, you can type in questions, just like you’re chatting with a buddy or a record store guru. It’s like having a musical oracle at your fingertips. You might be asking for the perfect summer disco dance tracks or craving some Italian funk to spice up your playlist. You could even ask for songs fit for a sunny Sunday. The results of the AI search might not hit the bullseye every time, but it’s all about the thrill of the hunt, discovering new music, and crafting playlists that resonate with you.

To unlock Supersearch head to the search bar and toggle the ordinary/Supersearch switch
