Swedish music streaming giant Spotify is working on a new feature that lets influencers share Stories alongside their public playlists. The new version will let select users share video clips that contain snippets of songs and album art.

The first influencer to test the feature is makeup and fashion YouTube star Summer Mckeen, who currently has a social media fan base that includes 2.33 million YouTube subscribers, 2.1 million Instagram followers and 126,455 Spotify followers. Mckeen is using the new feature to introduce a playlist of her all-time favorite songs, which she’s titled her “all time besties”, TechCrunch reported on Tuesday.

The Spotify Stories are only available on the iOS and Android device as yet.

For the music streaming app, this is still just a test. As we’ve seen with other Spotify tests, these don’t always develop into full-fledged products, and the company’s response is still vague, according to Engadget. (IANS)

India has the highest number of Spotify users in the 18-24 age group among all global markets, the Swedish music streaming giant announced on Thursday.

It completes one year of operations in the country on Thursday and since its debut, Spotify has been streamed in nearly 2,300 cities in India.

“Currently, there are over 6,400 Indian artists on ‘Spotify For Artists’, of which almost 5,000 were added in the past one year. Spotify has now more than doubled its music library of local, curated playlists in India; from 120 at the time of launch, to 350+ today,” the company said in a statement.

Interestingly, while GenZ and millennials drive the most streams on popular music genres — film music, international pop, and Punjabi non-film music, it’s the 35-44 year old users who listen the most to local, vs. international music.

‘Senorita’ by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello is the most streamed track across the country for the 55 and above age group.

With the top genres ranging across pop, filmi music, hip-hop, sufi and Indian folk, what unites Indian listeners is still their love for “love” as a genre for music.

When it comes to music preference, India’s “mushiest” states include West Bengal, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Assam, Bihar, and Sikkim, where “Bollywood Mush” features in the top three playlists.
