Start podcasts from the beginning

Start podcasts from the beginning

I was wondering if anyone knows if there is an option to make it so that when I play a playlist containing podcasts, the podcasts automatically play from the beginning? at the current moment I have a huge playlist consisting of nearly 100hours of podcasts, which I regularly listens to. But should I listen to a podcast halfway through, and than change to another one, that first podcast saves where I stopped listening to it, and when I shuffle play a few days later, that same podcast resumes from where I stopped it. Is there a way to make it so that this does not happen, and that podcasts always starts from the start when shuffle playing playlists in my library? I have a premium plan, and this can be pretty annoying to say the least.

Hey there @Asweti,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us 🙂

 

Currently, there is no option to start the podcasts automatically from the beginning. We're always striving to improve the experience with the app and we appreciate your feedback on this. We'll make sure to pass it on to the right team.

 

We'd suggest you also give these steps a go and submit your idea. That way other users can support it. Rest assured that the higher the number of votes an idea gets, the more likely it is for it to be implemented.   

 

You can also head here to see how your feedback reaches the right teams.

 

If you have questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We'll be happy to help.

Almost two years, and this hasn't been implemented yet? Kinda disappointing, not gonna lie.

Hi there @MeghanTheShade,

 

Thanks for bringing your feedback about this to the Community.

 

Currently there are no future plans about changing the way podcasts work, even when started from playlists. We've passed your feedback on to the appropriate teams at Spotify, but can't say for sure if such a change will be implemented in the near future. 

 

Cheers.

And ...another year gone by, still nothing. So much for 'striving to improve the experience' when can't even add a simple block of code to allow for this.

 

No point to reply to this comment. Hit me up when spotify starts putting their money where y'all mouth is.

Brah how is this not fixed yet? 

Hey, I just subscribed to spotify because of Alex Hormozi's podcast and I did like to play it from the very first one up to the latest.

But there seems to be no way to do that.

I have been able to get to the first of 651 episodes starting in 2017, but after listening to that, it doesn't go to episode 2

You still haven't fixed this? wth

No, they have not fixed this. Really interesting to be honest about how such a seemingly simple fix is impossible for them to implement. And it should not really take them that much to give us the option to have all podcasts played from the beginning.

 

For me, the only solution really has been to always rewind all podcasts that I do not finish.
