Spotify is currently testing a new feature that is similar to Snapchat Stories. The feature will be put alongside some of the playlists on Spotify. A few Stories-like video clips have already been spotted on the Christmas Hits playlists shared by popular artists like Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Lopez, and Pentatonix, where they talked about their personal anecdotes about Christmas and their song writing processes.
Tapping an icon on the top left of each supported playlist would display the short videos and the interface is pretty much like that of Instagram and Snapchat Stories: tapping on the left and right sides of the screen will help you navigate backward and forward through the series of videos, respectively.
Spotify hasn’t rolled this new video feature out on a wider scale as of yet, as the company is still testing it. About this new feature and Spotify’s testing processes, a Spotify spokesperson revealed that “Some of those tests end up paving the path for our broader user experience and others serve only as an important learning. We have no further news to share on future plans at this time.”
Stories have lately become a popular and much used feature on social sites and other networks. They were initiated by Snapchat, and then other social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp followed. Recently, even Twitter adopted the Stories-like feature. Similarly, YouTube and LinkedIn have it too.
