Spotify streaming service testing a new feature that will allow podcast authors to translate and dub their content into foreign languages in their own voice. Spotify is developing a new AI-powered feature with OpenAI, which is currently available to a limited number of podcast creators.
Content creators will be able to use the AI tool OpenAI Whisper to synthesize their voice, and then use the function of translating and dubbing podcasts into foreign languages. Spotify has already agreed with some bloggers to translate their podcasts into Spanish, with translations into French and German coming in the coming weeks. OpenAI said its technology can create a human voice from text and just a few seconds of a speech sample. Spotify will monitor the spread of the technology because they are afraid of privacy and security violations.
Previously Spotify launched Showcase tool, thanks to which artists have a new way to promote their music - now authors can pay to display their content in recommendations on the users’ home page.
