Spotify launches free music streaming app called Stations in US
Spotify has long been known for its subscription music service. Spotify has now released a new app on iOS called Stations which will give users access to curated music stations. You’ll even be able to access Spotify stations for free as long as you don’t mind ad breaks in your music. Or you can listen without ads if you pay.
This new Stations app looks a lot more like a traditional radio station with categories like 1970s and 2000s or stations like Rock and Country. Free users will be able to browse songs from top to bottom, but will not be able to skip any songs. Listeners who subscribe to Spotify will also be able to skip songs in addition to having an ad-free subscription.
Stations was originally launched in Australia. Spotify is now rolling out the service in the United States. Spotify has not commented on its intention to continue rolling out stations in new markets around the world.
