  • Spotify is testing a Pandora-esque standalone Android app

"When you have access to all the music in the world, finding the right thing to play can feel like a challenge". Songs can also be favourited, so "as you listen, it learns what you like and creates personalised stations that you'll love", promises the Spotify Station description in the Google Play store. They call it "the easiest way to listen to the music you love".

With the new Spotify app for iMessage, you can easily share tracks with friends, without leaving the chat app.

Stations is now labeled as an 'experiment, ' which clearly indicates that the app is being tested.

The core Spotify product is a subscription-based music, but there is a free version that lets users shuffle through playlists on mobile and is supported by advertising. Both free and premium users of Spotify can use Stations, although free users will have to listen to ads.

What do you think of the idea of Stations? Apparently you can add or delete playlists that exist, but can't create new ones. From app design renders these will take the form of "favourite" playlists and those with particular themes such has "Aussie Top 50" and "Easy Listening".


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

The app is now only available in Australia, but can be found in the Google Play Store. Spotify haven't commented on the app yet.

The company calls Stations an "experiment" that will help people "listen to great music".

Spotify is testing an app that sees it move firmly into Pandora's territory.

In case you already have the Spotify app for iOS installed on your phone, you can simply switch on the new Spotify iMessage app from the iMessage App Store.
