Douban, China’s leading SNS for arts enthusiasts, recently launched a “radio” service. It looks to be in beta at the moment, and essentially is a music player backed by a database of uploaded songs. It plays these songs at random according to perceived users’ taste. There are, of course, no hosts!
If you don’t like the song that the radio is playing, you can throw it into the “litter bin”; in time, Douban will “learn” your tastes and be able to cater to them more accurately.
Currently, the offering of songs is very limited. If you listen for an extended period of time, you will probably hear the same song repeatedly.
This seems to be direct competition to Neocha’s NEXT player. You can try Douban Radio HERE (you need an account). What do you think? How does it compare with NEXT?
