"When you have access to all the music in the world, finding the right thing to play can feel like a challenge", the app's description reads.

While such an app may not appeal to Spotify users with premium accounts, the allure of free music streaming could catch the attention of people who have yet to sign up to Google's Play Music service, providing they can stomach the in-app adverts. The app is now an Android exclusive and, at least at the time of publication, appears to still only be available in Australia.

Mashable reports that the ad-free app is created to help you get music on your speakers without breaking a sweat.

Some Twitter users supported the United passenger's attempt to bring the peacock onto her flight, while others were outraged.

This app offers a "lean-back" option to listen to music based on genres and managed playlists. For now, it's only available in Australia. With the condensed user interface recommendations are important so that you can easily find the playlists and stations you want to hear. While the desktop app is much more versatile and lenient in terms of offering great user experience, the mobile version is very limited. "With Stations, you can listen immediately, and switching stations is simple and seamless- no searching or typing needed". Among the thousands of curated playlists and custom-made selections Stations also features Spotify's personalised playlists for you like Discover Weekly and Release Radar. After a while, the app does begin to learn what you like and suggests playlists but it gives you absolutely no freedom to choose your own music and search for songs.

Spotify has not officially announced the service. Whether it will roll out across other markets and to iOS users remains to be seen.

We've asked Spotify about a United Kingdom launch, and will update this article with any response.
