  • Spotify Tests Free Stations App for Leanback Listening

However, while the Stations app is now listed in the Google Play Store, it's not available to Android phones outside of Australia. 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. When you will scroll inside the app, stations will be easily changed. "With Stations, you can listen immediately, and switching stations is simple and seamless- no searching or typing needed".

For those who can try Stations, it's designed around big font and individual playlists, all created to build around your preferences without any real user interaction beyond select the playlist.

From the Google Play Store, the app is described as such.

Then there, of course, is the self-suggesting feature also available that aims to provide users with songs lists based on your usage history. For now, it's only available in Australia.

"When you have access to all the music in the world, finding the right thing to play can feel like a challenge", the says. It also seems to include the popular curated playlists on the regular Spotify app like "Discover Weekly", and "Today's Top Hits". The new app lets you choose a "station", which is basically a curated playlist of songs in that genre.

The Verge has reached out to Spotify for more details around Stations, including the obvious question of whether an iOS version is coming. According to TC, Spotify is testing the app in Australia, but that it's not compatible with a lot of Android devices.

Right now, Spotify calls Stations an "experiment", meaning it may or may not stick around in the long term. It's testing a new app called Stations which is just for listening to playlists.

We've asked Spotify about a United Kingdom launch, and will update this article with any response.
