Testing of a podcast feed influenced by TikTok begins on Spotify


Spotify is testing a new TikTok-inspired podcast feed that could help you discover your next favourite podcast. To be clear, this does not signify a complete redesign of the app’s graphical user interface (UI) (UI). The podcast section of the app will be available soon.

According to The Verge, you won’t be able to see if you have any downloaded or subscribed shows on the new tab, but it will be a place where you can find new shows to watch.

You can swipe vertically through different cards on this page, similar to how you would on Instagram reels or TikTok. Every episode will be a completely random podcast, which you can skip by swiping up on the episode’s thumbnail.

Spotify is using machine learning to analyse more than 100,000 hours of podcast audio, according to TechCrunch. This is only a test, and as such, Spotify may decide to discontinue the feature before it is released.

As for Spotify’s testing of new features, a spokesperson told The Verge that the “company routinely tests new features” and “has no new news to share at this point.” It’s important to know that this feature is currently only available to a small number of users. In addition, it’s not clear if Spotify plans to make this feature available to everyone.

In response to Russia’s new media law, Spotify has announced that it will suspend its streaming service in the country. Earlier this month, the audio streaming service announced the permanent closure of its Russian operations due to Moscow’s “unprovoked attack on Ukraine.”

“Spotify has continued to believe that it is critically important to try to keep our service operational in Russia to provide trusted, independent news and information from the region,” Spotify said in a statement. We are concerned about the safety of our employees and even our listeners because of recently passed legislation that further limits access to information, eliminates free speech, and criminalises certain forms of news. “

My name is Zaid Quraishi. I pride myself on being a meticulous and organized individual who has done his Bachelors in Medical Technology and currently pursuing my Master's in the same course from Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences. I belong to the beautiful valley of Kashmir, and my hometown is Srinagar. I am the elder sibling of my younger brother. As far as my strengths are concerned, I am effectively communicative, optimistic, reliable, a team player, and time-efficient. My weaknesses are that I am an honest person and I tend to be blunt, and sometimes, I like to work alone. I am passionate about content writing, online gaming, and learning new things, especially languages (currently German). I have written two papers for my University degree, which helped me immensely in learning how to write effectively. I am confident in my writing skills, and I can effectively pour my thoughts out in writing and express myself so that the reader relates to it and is intrigued by the content. I love to play with my pet cat, and she is a darling to me. The thing that I dislike the most is being distracted when you are in the zone. Currently, I am a content writer in a dynamic work environment at Shouzy, ready to improve readers' satisfaction and increase retention levels.
