Streaming platform Spotify has announced that it will discontinue its pandora like station app on May 16th. The app and web player will no longer be available after this date.
The Stations app was created for users who prefer a more radio-like experience versus searching for music or creating their own playlists.
Spotify Stations debuted in Australia in 2018 and then expanded to the US in 2019.
The app has been removed from the App Store and Google Play Store.
"We perform a number of experiments at Spotify on a regular basis to offer better listening experiences for our users," a Spotify spokesman said in a statement.
"Some of those experiments pave the route for our broader user experience, while others serve just as valuable learning opportunities."
One of these trials was the Spotify Stations Beta.
The existing service will be retired but users will be able to effortlessly move their favorite stations to the Spotify app and enjoy a comparable radio experience.
Spotify hasn't said why Stations was shut off, but it does say that users can relocate all of their favorite stations to the main Spotify app to keep listening to them.
While Spotify Radio offers a comparable listening experience to Stations, the firm adds that listeners can utilise it instead.
Spotify Radio is a function in the main app that generates a playlist from any song, album, playlist, or artist you choose.
