If you can’t beat radio, you might as well try to be more like radio. Spotify’s new streamlined app is called “Stations.” It gives users easy access to curated playlists and its designed to give users a more radio-like experience.
It includes a scrollable list of playlists and the ability to customize stations. Like radio, there will be ads. Most likely, not as many though. Unlike radio, there will be no personalities or local community flavor. There will be playlists by genre, decade, activity and others and personalize to the users taste over time. Users will be able to thumbs up or down the songs, however, there will not be unlimited skips.
