I read that in addition to video Spotify now has podcasts, but where are they on the desktop version?

Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community about this!

 

Podcasts can be now found:

  • By tapping Search and then tapping on the Podcasts tile on mobile and tablet devices
  • By clicking Browse > Podcasts on the desktop app 
  • By clicking Home > Podcasts on the Web Player

There's more info and tips on this support site article.

 

If you're having troubles finding them with these steps, we'd recommend making sure that they are available in your location. If they are, a clean reinstall of the app on your device by following the steps in this Spotify Answer should do the trick. 

 

Don't hesitate to start a new thread in the related Help Board if you need help or have questions. We'll be happy to lend a hand!

 

Have a lovely day :)

At the moment, video and podcasts are not available on the desktop. I don't believe any announcements have been made yet regarding availability on platforms outside of iPhone and Android. More details here.

That's a bummer. I was hoping to make spotify my 1-stop music solution instead of switching between itunes & spotify all the time on desktop and podcast lounge & spotify on my phone.

Hey @jckinnick

 

Let me take a look with you.

 

To find them on iPhone, just head into the menu bar and tap 'Shows'. Do you see it? If not, could you let us know the version of Spotify that you're using at the moment? (Spotify > Settings > About Spotify)

 

I'd love to help.

Back on topic...is a podcast feature being considered for desktop?

@Jason Shows aren't appearing in the menu for me either! Either this feature isn't working yet, or there's a bug preventing it from displaying!

 

I'm running V 3.7.0.1100 on iOS 8 (iPhone 5s).

The "Shows" section is not showing up for me either. On n iPhone 6 plus running iOS 8.4.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your interest.

 

These new features are rolling out slowly on iOS and Android over the coming weeks.

 

Initially, this'll be in the UK, US, Sweden and Germany, but we're working on having more countries available soon.

If you're not seeing them just yet, stay tuned!
