Spotify is testing an NFT gallery for artist profiles
Spotify has tested an NFT gallery for artist profiles in the United States.
As Music Ally reports, the music streaming giant tested the feature on artist profile pages on select Android devices in the United States. Steve Aoki is among the artists who have signed up to exhibit and sell their NFT products. This feature is in addition to merchandise and touring information that is now often integrated into many artists’ profiles.
“Spotify is running a test where it will help a small group of artists promote their existing third-party NFT offerings through their artist profiles,” they said. “We run a number of tests on a regular basis with the goal of improving the artist and fan experiences. Some of these tests end up paving the way for a larger experience and some are just for important learning. .
Spotify reportedly won’t take any commission from NFT sales made in the test, but it’s unclear whether they will eventually take a cut if and when the service launches globally.
Last month, Swedish House Mafia became the first act to stream live on Spotify as part of the streaming platform’s new Spotify Live venture. The EDM trio livestreamed their set from their album release party in the California desert, which was hosted by Spotify with Alesso and Anitta also in attendance.
In 2021, it was reported that Spotify might soon allow users to control the levels of a vocal in any of the tracks in their catalog.
