[NEW YORK] Streaming giant Spotify is extending its foray into audiobooks, dropping nine new public-domain classics narrated by celebrities including Hilary Swank and Forest Whitaker.


A Spotify spokesperson told AFP the launch is part of "tests in an effort to improve our user experience."


"Some of those tests end up paving the path for our broader user experience and others serve only as an important learning," the spokesperson for the Swedish company said, without elaborating.


In May 2020 Spotify released an audio version of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," the first volume in the beloved series.


The platform has also uploaded an audio analysis series entitled "Sitting with the Classics," hosted by Harvard literature professor Glenda Carpio.
