In this article, we are going to cover the new Spotify NFT feature which is under testing, and what it has to offer to the users of the music streaming service.
Spotify may have already implemented non-fungible token (NFT) galleries on artist pages. According to The Verge, the music streaming service has started a test for some Android users in the US and currently offers NFT previews for artists like Steve Aoki and The Wombats.
“Spotify is running a test in which it will help a small group of artists promotes their existing third-party NFT offerings via their artist profiles,”
“We routinely conduct a number of tests in an effort to improve artist and fan experiences. Some of those tests end up paving the way for a broader experience and others serve only as an important learning.”
How do Spotify NFTs work?
The paper claims that Spotify will also allow users to “See More,” which directs them to the OpenSea NFTs page where they can purchase it. However, Spotify does not seem to support video or GIF NFTs. It just displays a static image of the NFT in the app rather than the whole video.
It also does not include sound, which is rather odd for a music streaming service. Users can only hear the NFT or check to see if it is a video or GIF by going to OpenSea. According to Music Ally, Spotify will not receive a commission for any NFT purchases made using the app and is simply experimenting with the connection.
