Dua Lipa chat-bot sends you a mood-based playlist
Creative technology agency Modern English has launched a facial recognition playlist generator as part of a new promotion of pop star Dua Lipa this week.
The web-app uses an online social messenger to allow fans to interact with a Dua Lipa chat-bot and upload a selfie that is analysed to give them a personal playlist based on what their mood depicts.
The platform was developed in collaboration with WBR in Burbank, Los Angeles, and follows a series of Spotify playlist apps that have been released by Modern English since their Foo Fighters Mixtape Generator in May 2017.
"#DuaMoods has been designed to feel like you have a chat with Dua Lipa and share pictures through social, and she gives you music to listen to based on how you look," said Andrew Hirst, co-founder, Modern English.
"There are some other really nice features and a few easter-eggs, but also for us it’s the realisation of a wonderful collaboration with the guys at Warner and also the next step in a series of projects that we’ve been developing particularly over the last 18 months."
Many fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the web-app:
