Spotify, a company that offers music streaming, has revealed that it is developing new tools that will let users create, edit, and publish podcasts right from the main app.Last month, the corporation launched similar function in New Zealand.According to TechCrunch, this will eliminate the need for a separate app, like the Spotify-owned Anchor, to record and post a rapid take for podcasts.
Michael Mignano, a departing Spotify executive and co-founder of Anchor, noted the release of this capability and stated that users will be able to create an episode “without the need for additional hardware or equipment”.After Anchor was acquired by the audio streaming service in 2019, he joined it.
If you have the feature, you will see a Plus button next to “Your Library” in the bottom bar on the home screen, as demonstrated in the video shared by Spotify New Zealand.You can choose to “Record podcast” or “Create playlist” if you tap on it.
A landing screen with a record button will appear if you select the option to “Record podcast”.The report stated that you have the option of recording audio in a single take or pausing it to take breaks.Once the recording is complete, you can edit the clip and include background music by choosing from a library of pre-made songs.
After editing, you can give the episode a title, add a description, tag another podcast or song, and then publish, it was uploaded.There are currently no specifics on whether or how this feature is accessible to users in other markets or how to access metrics for your podcast.
