- This week, Spotify rolled out “Stories,” where artists can share short videos with listeners on their playlists.
- The company is piggybacking off of the same feature originally created by Snapchat and also implemented by Instagram, Facebook, and recently Twitter with its new “Fleets.”
- Tech columnist Jason Aten argues this is a poor move on the music streaming company’s part.
- Not only is it a feature that doesn’t necessarily improve Spotify’s experience, he says, but users aren’t looking for apps to fulfill their every need, but for them to be the best versions of themselves.
On Monday, Spotify started testing a feature called “Stories.” It’s remarkably similar to a new Twitter feature, known as “Fleets,” which was basically a copy of an Instagram feature, also called Stories, which, of course, Instagram lifted directly from Snapchat. Oh yeah, Facebook has it, too.
