Spotify Tests a New Easy Playlist Listening App

Spotify Tests Free Stations App for Leanback Listening

In the app description, Spotify explained that like its core service, Stations will offer some personalization element as users listen to their favorite music. You'd imagine it could easily do that with this new app, which has a Spotify log-in button but doesn't require users to be paying members.

Spotify is perhaps best known for its on-demand music streaming service by the same name but now the company could be looking to branch out, if only slightly. Even though news of Stations has been making the rounds today, the Play Store says that the app only has 50-100 downloads at the time of this writing. The app is now an Android exclusive and, at least at the time of publication, appears to still only be available in Australia.

It also seems to be unavailable to download in the United Kingdom and U.S., although reports suggest Australia now has access. There is no way they can create their own stations though they can customize the list of stations based on their preferences.

Lawmakers Respond To FEMA Puerto Rico Cutoff Lawmakers have called on FEMA to continue supplying food and water to Puerto Rico. It's estimated that 300,000 Puerto Ricans have moved to Florida to flee the ravaged island .

Stations gives you simple, ad-supported, yet nonetheless subscription-free, listening of all of Spotify's curated playlists.

Stations is now labeled as an 'experiment, ' which clearly indicates that the app is being tested. "With Stations, you can listen immediately, and switching stations is simple and seamless- no searching or typing needed".

The app also includes the service's popular, individually personalized playlists such as Discover Weekly and Release Radar.

Laura Ashley brings new bedding, paint coordinates to Bon-Ton
Bon-Ton said it has partnered with third-party liquidator Hilco Merchant Resources, to help manage the closing stores' sales. The store closings include the Bon-Ton store in the Salmon Mall in Watertown, according to The Bon-Ton.

The Verge has reached out to Spotify for more details around Stations, including the obvious question of whether an iOS version is coming.

Right now, Spotify calls Stations an "experiment", meaning it may or may not stick around in the long term.

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