Spotify told Engadget that the Stories feature was available but as a test. The company also refused to confirm a wider roll-out of the feature. “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 an important learning. We have no further news to share on future plans at this time,” a spokesperson said.
