Spotify is testing a Pandora-esque standalone Android app

Spotify apparently has plans to launch another music app — one that’s more like Pandora’s original service, or like a radio, if you will. The company has begun testing a playlist-based app called “Stations” for Android, and according to its Google Play listing, it plays music as soon as you launch it. You’ll have to “like” tracks in the app so it can create personalized stations for you, but like Spotify’s main app, Stations learns what music you prefer the more you listen. All you need to do to switch stations and automatically start playing other music is to scroll through your playlists. – Mariella Moon, Engadget
