Notifications for new podcast episodes

Casual Listener

Currently using an iPhone X and have the most recent version of the app.  My friend who has the same model phone showed me a new feature whereby you can get push notifications when a new episode of a podcast you follow drops.  However, this feature doesn't seem to be working on my app.  When I click on follow on the podcast main page, all it does it unfollow the podcast.  I don't get any option to enable notifications.  Is anyone else having this issue as well?

My guess is it hasn’t been rolled out to all users. I have the notification feature turned on for multiple podcasts and still don’t get the push notification. Not sure what gives!?

Hey @avmlsu and @jamalexjam,

 

Thanks for writing about this here in the Community. 

 

You might want to take a look at the Idea right here. It suggests to have push notifications for new podcast episodes and it's going pretty well so make sure to add your +VOTE and support 🙂 

 

Hope you'll find this useful. We'll be here if there's anything else we can help with.

 

Cheers!

Hi! Has anyone else had issues with the push notifications not working as expected? For example, I do not always get notifications when a new podcast is live even though I have the alerts for it turned on. Additionally, I just got a notification for a new podcast (today is Thursday), when the podcast was from Monday.

 

Not sure if this issue is specific to me, but this needs to be resolved if it is not!

Hey there @jptalaga,

 

Thank you for your post in this thread.

 

In this case we suggest that you perform a clean reinstall of the app to make sure there's no old cache files causing this.

 

Also - is it one specific podcast or multiple podcasts this occurs on?

 

We'll keep an eye out for your reply 🙂

 

Cheers!

Hi, thank you for the help. I just completed all of the above steps and now I cannot even turn on notifications for podcasts. When I go to the page and click the follow button, it does not give me the option to turn it on and off. The functionality is now the same as it was before where it just unfollows or follows it. What should I do now?

Hey @jptalaga,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

The developer team is currently running tests with the push notification feature. So  it's possible that you might see something on the app your friend doesn’t, or get a brand-new feature for only a temporary period. Click here to learn more about Spotify tests.

 

We recommend that you add your support for the idea that @Mario posted and subscribe to it. We'll share any updates on the matter there, as soon as there are any.

 

Hope this was helpful for you. If you have questions, you know where to find us.
