Why can't I find podcasts on desktop?

Newbie

I can't find podcasts in the Windoows desktop client. Is that intentional or am I just missing something?

Because spotify isn't concerned about user experience, as long as they keep making money they're not going to add features that users ask for.

Hi there BarryN! Welcome to the community!

 

Unfortunately, podcasts and videos are not available on desktop right now. However, there is an idea for this in the Ideas Exchange board, you can vote for it and it might be implemented in Spotify. You can find this idea on this page.

 

Have a nice day and keep rocking! 🙂

You can't find them, however if you start listening on your phone whilst your desktop spotify is open you can press the "listen on desktop" that should play it on your PC.

I did not ask IF podcasts were available. I asked WHY.

I'm sorry, but I don't have access to that information. This idea is under consideration at Spotify. Keep an eye on the page for more updates. Let me know if you have any other questions.

That's pretty frustrating, I just started listening to podcasts, I would like to be able to listen if I'm at my desk as well as on the road.  If they are available on the mobile verson, they should be on the desktop version.
