Spotify Featured Curators Pilot Shows User-Created Playlists on Homepage: Details


Spotify is testing a new feature – Featured Curators Playlist – to bring user-created playlists to the app’s homepage. The feature is rolling out slowly, and if you’re part of the test, you’ll be able to see the recommended playlist on your own featured curator carousel. Spotify did not specify in which locations the feature will be piloted. The company is also reportedly testing a new “audio newsfeed” feature for easy discovery of podcasts on its apps. Last month, the company announced that Android users would get the long-awaited “Swipe to Queue” gesture.

Spotify’s featured curators pilot will allow listeners to discover music through a collection of playlists curated by select Spotify users and influencers. The pilot is a time-limited test and promotes popular user and influencer playlists on the app alongside Spotify playlists.

The curators chosen by Spotify are music lovers with established followings and popular playlists on Spotify. The feature is still in the testing phase and, according to Spotify, only users in “selected markets” may soon start seeing recommended featured curators’ playlists in the app and on their homepages.

Spotify is also reportedly testing a new “audio newsfeed” feature for easy discovery of podcasts on its apps. The new interface would provide a TikTok-style vertical scrolling feed that includes 60-second clips from various podcasts. It would use technology developed by start-up Podz, which Spotify acquired last year. This feature is currently said to be available for a limited number of users. These users get a dedicated “Podcasts” button in the app to access the vertical feed.

Earlier last month, Spotify also announced that Spotify users on Android will get the long-awaited “Swipe to Queue” gesture. This feature makes it easy to add tracks to a Spotify queue with just a tap. The feature was exclusive to iOS users for years.
