Just a few days ago we told you that Spotify began to allow independent musicians to upload their own songs to the platform. Now Spotify has confirmed that it will do the same for podcasts, allowing anyone to add their own program to the platform.
Similar to other similar platforms, Spotify does not store podcasts directly. In stead of, we will have to provide Spotify with the feed RSS of our podcast (after uploading it to platforms like iVoox) and the platform will take care of offering it as soon as we upload a new episode. That is, the operation of the program will be the same as on platforms such as Apple Podcast or Google podcasts.
At this point it is important to note that the program Spotify for Podcasters it is still in beta phase, which means that we may be missing some necessary features. Still, the company has confirmed that we will have access to a statistics section updated daily, which will help us to understand the reception of the different episodes of our podcast and different data about our audience.
Without a doubt, this is an excellent measure by Spotify, especially if we consider the enormous scope of the platform, a key aspect if we have launched a podcast Recently.
