[All Platforms][Friend Feed] Show Podcasts on the Friend Activity feed

Status: Case Closed

It would be great to have podcasts show up on the activity status/friend feed bar as they are a growing media form, and I use Spotify's podcast feature a lot now.

I feel like this should only be a separate option - I listen to a lot of more personal podcasts that I dont want my friends knowing I'm listening to - whereas I dont care about my friends seeing what music I'm listening to. I dont want to have to go into a private session each time I want to listen to a podcast - there should be a separate tick box in settings for this option instead of it being default.

Agreed. And lately I've seen the omission of podcasts from the Friends Feed as a barrier to the anti-racist movement that Spotify has committed itself to. The 'Tuned In' section of the 'Black History is Now' hub clearly shows that Spotify sees the educational value of podcasts. And of course there are many other podcasts not included which serve the same purpose. So why limit the Friends Feed to music? Why not remove this barrier to the spread of these important resources?
