Spotify Stations is shutting down
Later this month
Spotify has announced that it will be shutting down its experimental radio-listening app, Stations. The company has been running the radio-listening app since 2018 for both free and paid subscribers.
Stations first debuted overseas with an Android version, and in 2019 it launched for iOS, opening it up to users within the United States. After Stations being around for about five years, it will now be shutting down on May 16th, as reported by 9to5Google.
Stations is a radio app that played music as soon as users open the app. Users were able to swap around their favourite stations but were not able to choose specific tracks or artists. The app included pre-set stations as well as stations that were personally curated for users by them choosing their favourite artists from a list.
Users who use Stations, like Jared Newman, have received an email stating that the app will be shutting down. The email also explains that users will be able to visit the Stations website to move their favourite curated list onto the main Spotify app.
