TechCrunch announces that Spotify had made a decision to withdraw the plug on the internet radio application, which was launched in the year 2019, but has guaranteed the users; that they would be capable to listen to their stations in the main application.
Spotify didn’t give explanations why it’s been decided to shut down Stations, however, the organization did say in a declaration to TechCrunch that “we habitually conduct many of the experiments to produce better listening experiences for our clients,” and that the “Spotify Stations Beta was one of those experiments.”
It does look like Spotify Stations was a specifically long-running test, mentioned that it’s been around for almost three years, but evidently, Spotify has made a decision it’s the exact period for the application to bid adieu.
Shutting down Stations also looks to be a piece of broader changes at Spotify. The organization redesigned its primary application in the year 2021, relaunched its Clubhouse-like Greenroom feature to Spotify Live in March, and finally launched its Car Thing hardware in April.
Clients of Spotify Stations would have until the 16th of May to transfer their stations from Stations to the proper Spotify; the application itself has already been hauled from the Google play store and Application Store.

Spotify hasn’t given any kind of reasons behind the bold decision to shut down Stations but keeps in mind that clients can transfer all of their favorite stations to the chief Spotify application to start listening to them. The organization claims that while it doesn’t take sunsetting services on a lighter note, Spotify Radio gives an exact similar listening experience to Stations therefore listeners can use that instead. Spotify Radio is the best feature in the chief application that produces a playlist that relies on any song, playlist, album, and artist you opt for.
