So excited you finally have released this, but have recommendations to make it competitive with other services versions. 

-When choosing track mix, the user generally wants to hear the song they used to generate the mix. It would be good practice to test this feature with that in mind for premium or hifi subscribers. 

-Track mix is used primarily for music discovery. The idea of track mix is to hear more of what the user likes but hasn’t heard. From my short time with the feature, it very frequently will play 3-4 songs from the artist which seeded the mix. Causing the user to skip tracks that could have been avoided by not playing the seeded artist for ~3-4 tracks into the mix. 

-On a more general note that feels almost silly to put, is that the mixes aren’t very accurate to the track that was chosen to create the mix. A lot of times it’ll play something not even remotely close from another genre. I understand this is the hardest part to overcome from the feature and that it will actively be worked on as time goes on, and I look forward to see where it goes. 

Thank you for doing all that you do!

100% this. A critical part of this feature.

BUT, if you want to be extra-clever, if the song is already playing, just queue the Track Mix after the song and leave it playing!
