Spotify’s New Playlists For Drivers Basically Amount To FM Radio

New Spotify playlist wants to replace your car radio

Spotify is looking at podcast as a means to curb the dwindling returns from streaming music because of royalty fees.

Spotify has redesigned Your Library for premium users.

Spotify is rolling out a new update that refreshes the app's interface to make it easier for listeners to find podcasts.

"Escape from toggling between multiple stations to avoid music that isn't quite your speed", Spotify wrote in a Wednesday blog post announcing the new feature, which launched today for all US users. Earlier this year, the Spotify acquired two podcasting companies - Anchor (a podcast publishing platform, akin to what YouTube is for video) and podcast content company Gimlet Media - to transform a music streaming service to "being the world's leading audio platform", according to Spotify CEO, Daniel Ek.

Now when users are in Your Library, Music and Podcasts tabs will appear at the top of the screen. The Music section's categories are self-explanatory - Playlists, Artists, and Albums.

Additionally, the Episodes subsection under the Podcast tab has been created to display shows you've already started listening to first, making it easier to resume where you left off, followed by quick access to the newest episodes of each podcast just below that.

The new Podcasts tab will allow users to manage their podcasts in three sections: Episodes, Downloads, and Shows. Downloads, just as the name suggests, lists all the podcasts that you have downloaded for offline listening.

In addition to the new sections, Spotify will rearrange your selections depending on whether or not you are online. While Spotify says it considers "relevancy and personality of the hosts" in picking podcasts, length is an issue to consider.
