Spotify Is Experimenting With A Vertical Video Feed Similar To TikTok’s Design

Spotify is the latest app to experiment with a vertical video feed similar to TikTok’s successful design.

A new feature in an early test build for iPhone reveals a new Discover tab being added to the app’s front page. It has vertical music video clips that users can swipe through rapidly, similar to TikTok’s interface. It is not yet clear if the feature is slated for a wide release, or is only a test that may never be added to the main app.

It was first discovered by Chris Messina, widely credited as the inventor of the hashtag, who posted a short video to Twitter showing the new system in action. Mr Messina told news site Techcrunch – which first reported the story – that he found the new feature in the TestFlight build – Apple’s name for early-adopter beta versions of apps.

Many app companies – such as Twitter and Facebook – test such features many months before rolling them out to all users, and some tests never get released.

Spotify told Techcrunch that it was not formally announcing the new feature.

“Some of those tests end up paving the way for our broader user experience and others serve only as an important learning. We don’t have any further news to share at this time.”
