Remarkable new update for the leading music streaming service across all platforms.
Delusions of grandeur or genius idea? Anyway, Spotify's official app has chosen to once again focus on podcasts with its latest release. The developers have indeed added a “+” button at the bottom right of the iOS app , which you just have to touch to trigger an audio recording to then share as you wish.
The good news is that this shortcut does not only allow you to prepare an audio broadcast : it offers two options, the second of which is the creation of a playlist. A solution that could quickly become essential for all fans of these collections of personalized titles, which we like to feed according to the different releases throughout the week.
These new features come alongside other changes announced by Anchor , the podcast creation program acquired by Spotify. Among them, the possibility of discovering the latest episodes of your favorite creators thanks to a dedicated radar or a complete SEO guide to gain audience with the power of semantic optimization.
Via the Spotify app, the new podcast creation button then turns into a dictaphone and allows you to pause the recording if necessary before resuming it when you want. When you are satisfied with the result, you can then listen to it again before publishing it or even edit it by cutting the extracts that you consider the least relevant. In addition, the editor also offers a selection of free access music to enhance your backgrounds. Practice !
Publish in three clicks
When all the details for your podcast are ready, Spotify will then prompt you to choose a title, a quick description (four thousand characters maximum), and an album- like cover image . You will also be asked to specify if sensitive content is included, just to protect the youngest.
Finally, Spotify also offers to identify other podcasts or music in order to credit their authors or simply to invite your audience to go further. The update benefits from a gradual rollout; Don't panic, so if you haven't received it yet, you should in a few hours or a few days.
