I'm trying to switch to Spotify as my Podcast player but I'm still not 100% satisfied. There are some nice improvements that have already been implemented. One of my favorites is adjustable Playback speed (I use 1.2x and 1.5x). There is an issue though with playback speed control when playing through my Sonos though. As soon as I change the Device setting to my Sonos speakers, the playback speed defaults to 1x and will not allow me to change to any other speed. Please fix this!
Lack of 'Mark as Played' functionality and playback speed issues are the only things preventing me from fully switching to Spotify for podcasts.
