Spotify testing a "What's New" timeline feature
According to a report by The Verge, Spotify is testing a new feature that highlights new releases.
In a statement, Spotify said, "we are always testing new ways to create better listening experiences for more users, while continuing to find ways to connect artists to their fans.”
Whilst Release Radar and Discover Weekly have offered personalised recommendations of new artists for users to check out, the new feature aims to improve Spotify's promotion of new album and single releases.
Users have taken to Twitter to praise the new feature which is currently in beta stage. Whilst Spotify tends to test features publicly, it is not yet known when or whether the 'What's New' timeline will be rolled out in full.
