Getting Your Podcast Listed on Spotify

What is Spotify

Spotify is a digital music, podcast, and video streaming service that gives users access to millions of songs and other content from artists all over the world. Spotify is available across a range of devices, including computers, phones, tablets, speakers, TVs, and cars, making its reach potentially massive for your podcast’s growing audience.

Why should you get listed on Spotify?

Spotify has only recently begun accepting podcasts, but has already grown to be the number two service that users report streaming podcasts from as of autumn 2018. It has a massive reach, and the company itself is actively pushing podcasts in their marketing efforts, so there is no better time to get on board.

How do you list your podcast on Spotify?

Spotify now allows you to submit a podcast link just like any other platform, and does not require being listed on specific distribution playforms.

  • Follow this link to begin submitting your podcast to Spotify.
  • Make sure you have your RSS feed handy. If you are hosting with Shortwave, you can follow these steps to find your podcast’s RSS feed: What is my podcast’s RSS feed.
  • After you have submitted the form, Spotify will reach out to you letting you know if your podcast has been accepted or not.

That’s it! Once Spotify has informed you that your podcast is being distributed, you can expect to find your podcast by searching its name in the Spotify app.
