More than one year after Spotify Stations was quietly released on Android, and a month after it was released on iOS, Spotify is expanding its experimental app beyond Australia and making it available to download in the US, reports Billboard.
Spotify Stations differs from the main Spotify app in that it exclusively uses playlists rather than letting you choose to play music from specific albums or artists. You pick from the available playlists using the app’s minimalist interface, or you can create your own by picking out your favorite artists from a list. Playlists also become personalized to you over time.
The app is available to both free and paid Spotify subscribers. If you pay, then you’ll get an ad-free experience, and you’ll also be able to skip tracks. Free users are only able to give each track a thumbs up or thumbs down, with no option to skip.
