The first two tabs will give users an idea of what is hot, and a fresh new way to discover new artist. The suggested category will suggest new music based on your listening habits.

This new service stemmed from Twitter's acquisition of the popular website We Are Hunted, which was based around a Spotify app that streamed music based around top tracks endorsed by reputable blogs. The new service is said to be integrated with Spotify, Rdio and iTunes, but is not yet live as of this writing. However, it is expected to launch before the end of the day.
