“We are currently conducting a limited in-app audio creation test, but have no further details to share at this time,” the company said.

Spotify is also experimenting with allowing users to record and publish podcasts directly from the app.

The music streaming giant last week showed off a new design for the home screen of its mobile app that includes streams for music, podcasts and shows.

The company said the feature is currently rolling out for Android users and will soon be available on iOS.

In the Music feed, listeners will have quick access to suggestions based on their musical tastes, making it easier than ever to discover new favorites.

There will also be album and playlist recommendations along with buttons that make it easy to share, like, and instantly play music.

In the Podcasts and Shows feed, listeners will be able to directly access new episodes of their favorite shows.
