Music streaming giant Spotify has today announced the launch of a new playlist called ‘Your Daily Podcasts’ aimed at helping users discover new shows while also keeping up with old favourites. The daily podcast playlist will, however, only appear if you’ve listened to at least four podcasts in the past 90 days.
According to Spotify, Your Daily Podcasts playlist can be found in the “Your Top Podcasts” shelf in the Home tab or in the “Made for You” hub in the app.
Spotify says its algorithms will analyze your podcast behaviour, such as recent streams and follows, and then based on your listening history and the podcast type, the new personalized playlist will recommend the next best episodes for you:
That might be the next sequential episode in a podcast you’re already listening to (think Dog Tales and How’s Work with Esther Perel), a recent stand-alone evergreen episode in another show (maybe Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls 1 Keith or Certified Buckets), or a timely episode from a daily updating podcast (like Horoscope Today or The Journal).
Don’t worry—no spoilers here! If you’ve never listened to a story-driven sequential show we think you’d like, you’ll get the trailer or pilot episode first—to see if it catches your eye (er, ear).
Your Daily Podcasts playlist is now available to Spotify’s free and premium subscribers in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
