Spotify will soon let you record your own podcasts with just a tap of a button

Spotify is doubling down on podcasts.

Spotify users will soon be able to record their very own podcasts with just a tap of a button.

That is according to technology blogger and white hat hacker Jane Manchun Wong, a trusted leaker of new features coming to popular social media apps, websites and even streaming platforms like Spotify.

Wong uncovers yet-to-be-released changes to the biggest apps and webistes by reverse-engineering them or by looking at their codes underneath.

On Twitter, Wong said Spotify is testing a “Create podcast” button within the Spotify app to redirect users to the tech giant’s recently acquired business, Anchor, a tool that helps people make podcasts.

Wong posted screenshots of the said button under the Podcasts segment on Spotify. It comes as the music streaming platform is doubling down on its podcasts aside from its more attractive music offerings.

Earlier in June, Spotify launched a playlist called “Your Daily Drive,” that combines music and short-form podcast news updates.

Meanwhile, Wong also leaked an image of what appears to be a landing page for Anchor, which details how users can make their own podcasts via the platform.

In the photos, the leaked page shows the offerings of Anchor, including a mobile app, where users can record their voice and how they can “Get heard on Spotify” with just one tap. Apart from Spotify, the recordings made via Anchor can also be published on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and other major listing platforms, the photo reveals.

According to Anchor’s website, the platform not only helps users record their podcasts, but also guide them on the distribution and the monetization of their outputs.

In late June, another Spotify-owned podcast and music maker, Soundtrap, unveiled a new offering that lets users who are using the free version of the platform to get access to up to 2,210 music loops at zero cost. The sounds are used as background for songs and podcasts.

In its bid to become the leader in podcasts, Spotify also acquired Gimlet Media, a narrative podcasting company that has previously seen celebrities like Kristen Wiig, Catherine Keener and Alia Shawkat in its platform.
