One of the best things about using Spotify is the Discover Weekly playlist -- a custom playlist that's tailor-made to your music taste. Available to all Spotify users (you have to use it for at least two weeks before one generates), Discover Weekly playlists (found under the Browse tab) are based on similar users' music taste, as well as your listening history and listening habits.

The weekly 2-hour roundup of recommendations is so popular that Spotify recently launched similar playlists: Release Radar, a weekly that exclusively shares new music you might like, and Daily Mix, one (or more) daily playlists full of music Spotify knows you love.

Other streaming music services offer personalized music recommendations, too, but I think Spotify's advanced algorithms are pretty great -- and I'm not the only one who thinks it's a killer differentiating feature. Here are three tips to ensure that you get the best Discover Weekly playlist possible.
