The Spotify Stations app lets you easily create stations for the music you love, all for free.

Get started

Note: You don't need the main Spotify app to use Stations, but you need a Spotify account. If you don’t already have one, you can create it when you open Stations. 

  1. Download Spotify Stations from the iOS App Store or Google Play store.
  2. Log in to your Spotify account, or tap SIGN UP if you’re new to Spotify. 
  3. Enjoy the music! Scroll up or down to change the station. Tap (+) in the top-left corner to add a station.

The more you listen, the better Stations gets. You’ll unlock stations such as Favorites, Discover Weekly, and Release Radar based on your listening history.


Yep! But if you don’t have a Spotify account, just tap SIGN UP when you open Stations.

Yep! Tap  on a track to save it to a station called Favorites.

Note: You need to tap  on at least 15 tracks for Favorites to show.

Nope! But if you do have Spotify Premium, you'll get ad-free music listening and unlimited skips.

To modify a station to better match your taste:

  • Tap  on any track you love, and  on any track you don’t like. This adjusts the rest of the station accordingly.
  • Tap the station name to open the Station Detail screen. Here you can: 
    • Rename the station.
    • Add/remove artists (for artist stations).
    • Switch Include similar artists on/off. 
    • Choose to remove the station.
