Spotify is reportedly shutting down Spotify Studios also known as Studio 4

The podcasting-focused cutbacks came to light in a recent report from The Verge, which indicated that higher-ups had informed the affected Spotify Studios team members of the decision late last week. Spotify – which can accommodate as many as 600 employees, from 18 podcast studios, at its 155,000-square-foot Los Angeles campus – has reportedly reassigned a portion of the axed division’s staff.

But the Stockholm-based streaming giant laid off others (including two-year Spotify Studios head Gina Delvac), whose final day at the company will arrive on Friday, January 21st, according to the same source. These professionals will reportedly receive two months of severance pay; Spotify hadn’t publicly addressed the shutdown or the fate of the involved individuals at the time of this piece’s writing.

It's a pity for the employees involved, but IMHO Spotify focussed too much on Podcasts. From that perspective I hope that music will come first again instead of all the Podcast stuff they are also putting in front of their application...
