Spotify's radio-like listening app stations will not be available anymore as the music streaming platform has decided to shut down the services.

"At Spotify, we routinely conduct several experiments to create better-listening experiences for our users. Some of those tests end up paving the way for our broader user experience and others serve only as an important learning. Our Spotify Stations Beta was one of those tests. We will be sunsetting the current feature, but users will be able to easily transfer their favourite stations and enjoy a similar radio experience directly within the Spotify app," a Spotify spokesperson said.

The app was originally designed for those who want a more radio-like experience, rather than having to seek out music or customise their playlists. Spotify Stations first debuted in Australia in 2018 and then expanded to the US in 2019.

The company said that while it does not take sunsetting services lightly, Spotify Radio provides a similar listening experience to Stations so listeners can use that instead. Spotify Radio is a feature in the main app that creates a playlist based on any song, album, playlist or artist you select.

Meanwhile, Spotify finally stepped into metaverse by announcing to bring its island on Roblox called Spotify Island. This virtual space will allow players to make music, play games and interact with virtual artists. Spotify describes this island as “a paradise of sound where fans and artists from all over the world can hang out and explore a wonderland of sounds, quests, and exclusive merch.”

Spotify Island features a Spotify branding and has a lot of green colour landscape along with heart-shaped “Like” icons that players can collect and purchase virtual merchandise of their favourite music artists. As per the music-streaming platform, the exclusive in-game virtual merch will allow artists to connect with their fans and earn money. A percentage of the sales made will go to the artists.
