Spotify makes Music + Talk podcasts available to more creators, adds 15 countries
Spotify has refreshed its Music + Talk podcast format and made it available to millions of new creators with the addition of 15 new markets across Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
Music + Talk allows creators using the Spotify-owned Anchor podcast creation app to add music from Spotify’s 70 million track library to any show.
The format has led to the creation of many radio show-like podcasts and enabled artists to share music with fans using formats like interviews alongside music, track by track commentary, and more. [links to more ideas and a case study below]
New Music + Talk markets launched today include Japan, India, Philippines, Indonesia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Colombia.
