Volumio AI Features Music Supersearch Discovery Powered by ChatGPT

Harnessing the power of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Volumio AI delivers a revolution in music discovery. Should Roon be nervous?

Apocalypse now approaching; with all of the hysteria online in regard to the power of AI and ChatGPT, one would think that we were only days away from Skynet taking control of global arsenals and delivering hundreds of nuclear strikes across the planet. Is AI a growing threat? Left unchecked, that will probably be the case but there are certainly some positive aspects of the technology and anything that puts copywriters out of business can’t be a bad thing.

Smart software developers have already seen the writing on the wall and figured out that AI and platforms such as ChatGPT can be used to assist users when it comes to music search. Volumio AI appears to be an interesting approach and it will be interesting to see how it compares to Roon and whether it offers a superior search and curation experience. With a significantly lower “monthly” price — is the nuclear strike on the wall for the premium music search platform?

Launched in 2013, the Volumio Music Player ecosystem has been built from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with a wide range of devices — ensuring, no matter what the source, all of your music is aggregated and delivered in bit-perfect quality. ​ Volumio’s open ecosystem gives music fans the freedom to choose, regardless of how they wish to listen. DIY audiophiles can download Volumio’s software package for free for their Raspberry Pi, PC, or ASUS Tinkerboard.

Volumio also manufacture their own range of dedicated digital audio streamers for music lovers: Rivo, Primo and Integro; you can read our recent review of the Integro streaming amplifier here.

The latest version of Volumio’s Music Player — Volumio AI — is one of the first music apps in the world to fully integrate an AI search function. The new groundbreaking Supersearch feature unlocks the power of Open AI’s ChatGPT, bringing listeners a whole new dimension of exciting music discovery.
