Due to licensing restrictions, Rockbot cannot play more than one song from the same artist in a row. This means Playlists need a variety of both songs and artists to work well and avoid repetition.
Playback within a Playlist is always randomized due to licensing restrictions. Songs with more user upvotes will play slightly more often. If you have Request enabled we’ll tune that playback frequency based on the preferences of the Rockbot app users in your business.
How big a Playlist needs to be depends on how long you are going to play it for. We recommend at least 200 songs for a Playlist that will play for 8 hours - and even that will become repetitive. The Rockbot system will not allow the scheduling of Playlists with fewer than 20 songs and 12 artists.
