As reported by Engadget, the company confirmed the ongoing tests of its new feature. “At Spotify, we routinely conduct a number of tests in an effort to improve our user experience,” a Spotify spokesperson said in a statement. “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.”
