Spotify is testing an in-app 'create podcast' button

It appears Spotify is testing an in-app 'Create Podcast' button

By: Jak Connor from Aug 29, 2019 @ 7:12 CDT

Spotify seems to be encouraging its user base to jump into creating their very own podcasts with a new button that has been leaked online.

The news comes from leaker Jane Wong who spotted the new button its Spotify's podcasts library. From the screenshot we can see if you press on Podcasts, then click on shows you will see the 'Create Podcast' button. Looking at the button description, we see that Spotify will allow for users to create their own podcast using Anchor, which is a podcast creation technology company that Spotify acquired earlier this year.

Spotify seems to be testing this button in select countries as I went to my own Spotify to check it out and it wasn't available. According to Spotify who spoke to The Verge, "We are always testing new products and experiences to improve the overall Spotify experience. Some tests will eventually make way for upgrades to our product, others are only tests. We have no further news to share at this time."

It will certainly be an interesting future for Spotify as they seem to be wanting as many people as possible to be creating and uploading podcasts to their platfrom. Providing users with easy and convenient ways to start creating and editing podcasts will certainly entice people who once were curious, but didn't know how to get it all started, to finally take the leap and jump on the podcasting board.

In other news about Spotify, Eminem's publishing label are suing the company for not paying royalties to billions of music streams, more on that here.
