All of us Podcast lovers would definitely welcome a push notifications for new podcast episodes. Please consider!

Hello! Our team of researchers are working to improve the podcast experience. To help us get a better idea of how push notifications would be useful, answer the following questions in the comments:
I would find this feature amazingly useful, I subscribe to podcasts via Spotify but then tend to revert back to my podcast app (Podcast Addict on Android) due to it notifying me. In answer to the questions asked:
1. I really enjoyed that Google Play would give you the choice to receive notifications by each podcast. It's less essential for daily podcasts, but great for when a new season launches after a long pause.
2. Some podcasts have inconsistent schedules or take hiatus between seasons. Some I only listen to if they have a good topic or guest. Notifications would be a welcome way to know that there's something new, and to know what it's about to promote engagement.
I would love to be able to do away with Pocket Casts for my podcast listening, and use Spotify instead.
What I like about push notifications, is I don't have to periodically check for new episodes, and can be sure I listen to them as soon as they are available, and in some cases, relevant.
Not all podcasts keep to a strict release timeline either, so it helps with this.
On other podcast apps, I use push notifications for when new episodes are posted. This is really helpful, especially for podcasts that have seasons and go on hiatus for several months out of the year. It would be helpful to have this be a separate option for other Spotify notifications, which I don't use.
2 I tend to forget when my fav podcasts are released and not all of them have a frequency defined
So there is still no push notification for new podcasts and they've removed the wonderful recently added podcasts list with this new interface. Is the idea to make it MORE difficult to listen to podcasts?
