Spotify Clips Brings Instagram Stories Format to Spotify Playlists

WHAT?

Spotify is jumping on the “Stories” bandwagon with Spotify Clips. At its online-only Stream On event on Monday, Spotify announced Spotify Clips.

HOW?

It will be available on Spotify playlists and will allow artists to connect with fans in a new way. 

Unlike other platforms, Spotify Clips will behave very differently — it won't be available to everyone for one. Listeners, people like you and me, won't get to share their own “Stories”. Instead, only select playlists will be able to feature artists' photos and videos on Spotify Clips.

There's no clarity on how artists will submit their content to Spotify Clips, but Spotify notes that the feature won't be available via Spotify for Artists, as creators might have expected.
