Spotify tests NFTs feature with Steve Aoki, The Wombats

Written By Simon Mwebaze

Music makes the world go round and we love the platforms that make it accessible. Spotify is one of the most popular music platforms that brings your favorite artists’ songs and albums home.

But it looks like they want to give more … through NFTs.

Spotify has been giving out clues about its interest in Web3. Not too long ago, it had two job listings attached to blockchain and NFTs. More so, a few users reported a Spotify app survey on their NFT opinion.

So their recent developments are not a huge surprise.

What are we talking about? Spotify is testing a feature to allow artists to showcase their NFT collections. The test is exclusive to some users on Android in the US. A few artists are testing, including Steve Aoki and The Wombats.

If you have access to the test, how can you access the galleries? It is simple. All you need to do is visit any of the included artist pages and scroll past the song list to find the NFTs. Once you access the NFTs, tapping them will bring up a larger version and a short description. There is also a “See More” option that can redirect you to the NFT listing on OpenSea where you can buy the token. Before you get too excited about this feature, you will need to know that it does not support NFTs that are videos or GIFs. Also, Spotify will not be collecting a commission on sales it adds during the test.

Features like this are not new in the platform market. Instagram has its ball rolling in incorporating an NFT tagging feature. It looks like we will see more come along into NFTs. They are getting hard to ignore.

We’ll be watching.
