The Spotify Stations app will be closed from May 16


San Francisco, May 7 (SocialNews.XYZ) Music streaming service Spotify has confirmed that its lightweight Spotify Stations listening app will no longer be available from May 16.

The company said the app and web player will no longer be available after that date, TechCrunch reports.

The Stations app was originally designed for those who want a more radio-like experience, rather than having to search for music or customize their own playlists. Spotify Stations first launched in Australia in 2018, then rolled out in the US in 2019.

“At Spotify, we regularly conduct a number of experiments to create better listening experiences for our users,” a spokesperson said in a statement to TechCrunch.

“Some of these tests end up paving the way for our broader user experience and some are just for important learning. Our beta version of Spotify Stations was one of these tests. We will be removing the current feature, but users will be able to easily transfer their favorite stations and enjoy a similar radio experience directly within the Spotify app,” the spokesperson added.

Spotify did not specify the reason for its decision to shut down the stations, but noted that users can move all of their favorite stations to the main Spotify app to continue listening.

The company said that while it doesn’t take timeout services lightly, Spotify Radio offers a station-like listening experience so listeners can use it instead.

Spotify Radio is a feature in the main app that creates a playlist based on any song, album, playlist or artist you select.
