Spotify has released a new standalone app for Android that focuses exclusively on playing playlist and stations. The app, which is called Stations, is described as “the easiest way to listen to the music you love. Totally free.” The app is an “experiment,” according to Spotify.

Stations was available in the Google Play Store, however, as of yesterday night, January 30, the app can’t be used on mobile devices in the United States and is only available in Australia. There’s no word whether an iOS version is coming.

The app includes Spotify’s popular and individually personalized playlists such as Discover Weekly and Release Radar. There’s no timetable on whether this will develop into an actual app made for purchase.
