Spotify Stations is an application that has been beta testing since March 2018. It has helped Spotify shape listening experiences for the future, but now it's time to shut down the app.
Spotify Stations is going to be deprecated for mobile applications (iOS and Android) and the web player on May 16th. This change will affect all Stations users in the countries where it was available (the United States and Australia).
Users will receive an email to let them know about the app sunsetting. Following that email, there will be instructions on how to move stations over to the Spotify app to easily continue enjoying music.
In the meantime, check out the Spotify Radio feature in the Spotify app, to create a station with a collection of songs based on any artist, album, playlist, or song. It can provide a similar hands-off listening experience that is definitely worth the try.
