My Question or Issue

 

I've noticed that Spotify's "Radio Stations" are really just playlists that never change. Is this the expected behavior?  With other services like Google Play Music, whenever I start a "Radio Station" with a seed artist the output is consistently different.

 

Am I missing something here?

Hi, 

 

are you follwing many artists? I think the more artists you follow and add songs by artists you like to your own playlists, Spotify will build listening preferences around what you like and listen to; I think? 🙂 Hope that helps.

Addendum:

 

It makes no difference where I use Spotify, the radio station behavor is the same across all platforms. I picked iOS because that's where I use it most.

I'm not because I never would have guessed that to be a requirement for a "radio station" but I'll be sure to give it a try. Thanks!
