This is simple and basic functonality. Please make it happen!


This seems like an absolute no brainer!  It is very frustrating that I have to use a separate 3rd party app to listen to podcasts in my car when I already subscribe/listen from Spotify.


Please add this feature!


If this feature is available in Apple Car Play why is it not available in Android Auto.  I'd really love to know why it isn't.  Was it on purpose left off?  Was it forgotten? Is it a simple bug? I'm part of a discussion about allowing podcasts to be added to playlists but this is really the issue that I'm trying to have resolved.  Come on Spotify.  I pay for premium and I can't have the same functions as an Apple user?  Why not?


Hey Guys,


This idea has 117 votes right now. By when can we expect this feature/bug delivered? 





Now at 120+ votes... previous one they closed for inactivity had 230+ - so why was it closed in the first place? 


I agree w/ the others - this is basic functionality that needs to be included. As android auto starts showing up in more and more cars (and aftermarket head units) the demand will only go up!


Dear Spotify,


Can you please update us regarding to this idea? Should we forget it? Will it be scoped? If yes, what is the realistic date of going live?


Thank you and Regards,



Recently brought a new car with Spotify installed, I have logged into my account and there is no podcast menu! How do we get Spotify to sort this its a joke? I want everything in one place. I may switch to itunes as its so much easier. How can we contact them direct for an anser please?


I wish I knew how to contact them directly cause I'd plague them with this.  All I can see to do is keep getting this idea some votes and get them to pay attention that way.  Also part of a thread to be able to add podcasts to a playlist.  Both of the ideas to me seem to be common sense.  If you can boost this link through your social media channels it might get a bit more momentum.


This doesn't seem like a feature request, but rather a bug fix. Shouldn't take this long to fix this issue!


This is for sure a missing key feature. I'm using a different app only to listen podcasts in my car and this is the place where i hear podcasts most of my time. I also have to exclude podcasts which are only available on Spotify.
