Spotify has introduced its own style of the popular "Stories" feature on Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and other photo and video-sharing platforms. But unlike on those apps, where users will share visuals in a sequence that last for just 24 hours, on Spotify artists will use the tool to share additional background for their music or creative process and will stay up for as long as they like.
The new function called Storyline is available on Spotify's iOS and Android apps, but not on desktop. It pops up as songs play, not unlike the Spotify and Genius partnership "Behind the Lyrics." (In fact, Storyline appears on top of Behind the Lyrics.)
