Hello, Is there any update so far on this request? 

 

It would highly increase my usage of podcasts and as it is in the intrest/strategy of Spotify to invest in podcasts, I don't really understand why this is still open since 2016?

 

Many thanks for your feedback

"Not right now"

We're the biggest podcast platform in the world right now but basic usability isn't something we're interested in.

Still unsubbed to premium, and won't consider resubbing again until you fix your usability problems.

It's 2022.

"Idea" since 2016.

It's somewhat disturbing that for nearly 6 years, it was not possible to implement a basic feature like this.

 

Even then, it was not a new idea, it was in the iPod for about... TWELVE YEARS. (iPod.. iPodder.. podcast...)

 

Oh well. Twentyfirst century customer focused agile devops. 🙂

Automatic episode download and velocity are a basic and essential features to make Spotify my default player for podcasts

How is this still an idea, with little to no response from Spotify on this? Every other major podcast player, and even most of the minor ones, has an auto-download feature. I was planning on moving all of my podcasts from Pocket Casts to Spotify since I do most of my music listening there. Now I remember why I didn't fully switch last time. It almost feels like Spotify is going out of its way to make their platform unusable.

I can't believe it doesn't have this feature. When did big tech become so useless? I can get free apps that do a better job.

It's not really a podcast app without this.
