Spotify has very quietly released a new standalone app for Android that's exclusively dedicated to quick, easy playlist and station listening.
Stations is now labeled as an 'experiment, ' which clearly indicates that the app is being tested.

The core Spotify product is a subscription-based music, but there is a free version that lets users shuffle through playlists on mobile and is supported by advertising. Users need to have an active membership with Spotify to use the new Stations app though that happens to be the only requisite to have to get started with the app. The app is totally free according to the Google Play listing which was first spotted by Variety, and is being tested as an experiment here in Australia ahead of a broader launch.
