Spotify is testing out a feature similar to TikTok’s video feed, TechCrunch reported. Spotted first by Chris Messina, the beta version of the feature shows up as a new icon in the Discover bar and takes the form of a vertical video feed where users can discover new music via swiping, just like you would on TikTok.
In the feed, short song clips play alongside full-screen music videos. Users can continue scrolling in the feed or choose to like or skip the song. They can also tap the three-dot menu to view Spotify’s standard song information sheet.
Sharing his findings on Twitter, Messina described the Discover feature as “basically a pared-down version of a TikTok-style feed.”
Spotify confirmed the beta feature to TechCrunch but declined to share further details.
“At Spotify, we routinely conduct a number of tests in an effort to improve our user experience,” a spokesperson told TechCrunch. “Some of those tests end up paving the way for our broader user experience and others serve only as an important learning.”
