We've got the latest scoop on where you can find the Spotify stories and why the growing feature has snuck its way onto the digital streaming site.

Spotify Streaming & Stories


Spotify, the Swedish-based audio streaming service, is popular because of its high-quality audio feedback and a comprehensive catalog.

Spotify offers users universal listening options. From listening to your favorite podcasts, artists, and playlists made just for you, Spotify has something for everyone. The site also supports community-building through sharing and collaborating playlists.

Now and exclusively on Spotify's Christmas Hits playlist, you can watch stories similar to the kind you would come across on Instagram. These stories feature videos from several recording artists like Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Clarkson, and Meagan Trainer, to name a few.

Are Spotify Stories Here to Stay?

According to Engadget, Spotify has confirmed that they are merely testing stories out for the moment. There has been no indication of whether the feature is here to stay and extend to your personal playlists.

A Spotify spokesperson said,

At Spotify, we routinely conduct a number of tests in an effort to improve our user experience. Some of those tests end up paving the path for our broader user experience and others serve only as important learning. We have no further news to share on future plans at this time.
