"With Stations, you can listen immediately, and switching stations is simple and seamless - no searching or typing needed".
The playlists again are shown in big bold fonts, which makes them easily accessible even while say the user is driving or during a workout. The app, called Stations, is an "experiment" according to company that is all about playlists and Spotify stations.
Spotify has launched a new app named Stations which is now available only in Australia but is expected to be rolled out to all regions soon.
When questioned about the app, Spotify simply told Variety that it's "testing new features all the time", declining to give any specific information about Stations itself.
While such an app may not appeal to Spotify users with premium accounts, the allure of free music streaming could catch the attention of people who have yet to sign up to Google's Play Music service, providing they can stomach the in-app adverts.
It also seems to be unavailable to download in the United Kingdom and US, although reports suggest Australia now has access.
Stations is in a purely experimental phase, and is now only available via Google Play in Australia on certain devices.
Considering the fact that the app faces some strong rivalry from other streaming services like Pandora, Stations seem to be a viable alternative and will provide a more streamlined experience. There is no option to skip through songs but it does keep track of your music listening habits so as to suggest songs that match your mood or taste.
We've asked Spotify about a United Kingdom launch, and will update this article with any response.
