A current area of research within music information retrieval is the automatic formation of music playlists: automatically creating a meaningful arrangement of music tracks. It is an application area particularly suited for accessing music on mobile devices as music collections are becoming too large to manually navigate. The growth of music streaming services means that even more vast collections of music are accessible from a mobile device. Much energy has been spent constructing the best algorithms to create a playlist, but less has been spent on how that algorithm is presented and accessed, particularly on a mobile device.
