Music App: Gaana launches Auto queue feature

Gaana has unveiled yet another unique product feature to offer a superior and seamless music listening experience to its users. The newly introduced feature AutoQueue enables consumers to hit up a song and indulge in effortless streaming while Gaana plays similar songs on its own.

It’s powered by a unique machine learning algorithm that factors probability of songs being heard together (past behavior) as well as similarity of music, tempo/bpm etc to predict possible songs a user would like to hear after they have manually played one song. The algorithm analyzes thousands of signals and data points to come up with personalized song suggestions.

Speaking on the launch, Sandeep Lodha, CEO, Gaana said, “In the last year and a half, audio streaming has played a major role in people’s lives and consumption is on the up. Gaana has always known to understand the pulse of the Indian listener and with AutoQueue we are now going one step further to hyper-personalize each user’s app experience making it effortless to listen to great music. The feature is born of Gaana’s user research & tech capabilities and gives personalized endless background track to the lives our users live in the foreground. I invite everyone to experience the joy of AutoQueue.”


  • Dramatically reduces manual searching time and solves for “listener’s block” (where one struggles to think of the next song to play)
  • Makes discovery of new music easier, as listeners get served apt songs they might not know of on their own
