[Desktop][Podcasts] Sort by Unplayed/Recently Updated

Currently, the only way to listen to unplayed podcasts on desktop is to open a phone and check the feed there, or check every podcast individually for new content. That's 100% unacceptable, and has been for years.


Give us a podcast view that we can sort / filter by unplayed episodes or recent uploads. If you want to be the industry leader in streaming, you can't ignore table-stakes functionality because of "100 kudos" horsesh*t.

It's 2023 and I can't see recent released podcast episodes on Spotify desktop. I'm a product person myself and can't understand how can that be so difficult? They are either not caring about podcast at all, or they are not doing proper user research / listening to community feedback. Both are bad.


Its almost 2024 and they still have not fixed this. I want to use Spotify for podcasts but every time I try I end up getting frustrated by this issue and go back to another podcast service. Thinking of just switching to Apple Music and Apple podcasts for good.


It's there on the desktop now, in two ways.


Your library, filter by "Podcasts and Shows", then sort by recently updated. It doesn't show the most recent -name- or entry; you have to click on it to see that, but at least you know which podcasts have been most recently updated.



Alternatively and easier, click on "What's new" button in upper right hand corner and filter by "Podcasts and shows". Then you see everything you're used to.







November 2023, and, after more than 3 years, Spotify still refuses to fix this. why?
