Spotify Testing 'Stations' App for Quick Access to New Jams

When you will scroll inside the app, stations will be easily changed. Spotify has not indicated if the app will be rolled out globally, and no word yet if the company has plans to extend it to other operating systems like iOS. You'll instead have to rely on the app's ability to automatically generate new playlists based on your musical tastes. "With Stations, you can listen immediately, and switching stations is simple and seamless- no searching or typing needed". It's testing a new app called Stations which is just for listening to playlists. The app is totally free according to the Google Play listing which was first spotted by Variety, and is being tested as an experiment here in Australia ahead of a broader launch.

It would seem that Spotify has a new app in testing on Android. Like Spotify's core service, there's a personalization element with user-based playlists created once enough music has been played for it to gather data. Users need to have an active membership with Spotify to use the new Stations app though that happens to be the only requisite to have to get started with the app.

With Stations, the company looks like it has taken an alternative approach by creating a standalone app that offers more direct competition to Pandora.

As part of moves to remain competitive, Spotify launched a version of its app for iMessage in September.

For better or worse, this app tackles the problem of choice by completely eliminating it for the user, giving it all to whatever algorithm drives the app.

Spotify has now described the app to Variety as an experiment and may either release it wider or incorporate the lessons learned from this in its mainstream app.

We've reached out to Spotify for more information and will update when we hear back.
