Infographic: What’s Going on with Your Listeners?

Statistics are extremely important when it comes to really understanding your audience, and it’s why we make sure to always give you updated numbers on how your shows and tracks are doing.

It’s just as important to get the bigger picture, too, so starting this month, we’ll be sharing Spreaker‘s monthly overall stats. We want to be more open with you, plus give you a better feel of the context you’re working within.

Take a look at our eye-popping info graphic, featuring detailed data on overall listening time from streaming sources (download data isn’t available).

It’s Your Choice with the RSS Feed Redirect!

Here at Spreaker, we work hard at bringing you the best service possible, using your feedback as the drive behind improvements and changes.

Our friends Dave of School of Podcasting and Mike Russell of Music Radio Creative tipped us off on the importance of not feeling locked in to any service, or tricked into staying with a particular platform. Now anyone that doesn’t find Spreaker to be the right fit but already has an active RSS feed going can feel free to redirect their feed to another service’s. Continue reading

And that’s all for now…let’s start this week!

Hello Monday: WordPress, Sonos and more!

sonos1Morgen, guys! We’re happy to report that this week the whole team is together again in Berlin; working side by side and giving you an always better product!

This week we’ll be focusing our attention on:

WordPress plugin: For all of you who have been asking about this update – you’ll now get a new plugin for WordPress that can be used on all its latest versions! So guys, never worry about sharing on your WordPress blogs again!

SONOS: We’re about to launch our newest integration with SONOS, to give you an even better audio experience. We’ve always valued your input, and it’s needed to be able to create a great app, so we want to thank those of you who have already tested things out for us. We’re still looking for more feedback, so don’t be shy guys, test it out and let us know what you think!

Let’s kick off the week!

Beta testers, help us out with SONOS!

Spreaker will soon be officially announcing its newest partnership with SONOS, the HiFi wireless speakers and audio system. You’ll be able to search your favorite Spreaker shows and content through the SONOS app, and pump it through your entire house in a pinch. Please your ears while you’re singing in the shower or cooking some grub!

Before the official launch, we just need some beta testers to check things out and make sure things are working as they should. Here’s how you can help:

If you don’t have one already, you can order your SONOS speaker system straight from their site, and download the SONOS Controller app, available for both iOS and Android.

In the SONOS app, from the main menu, go to Add Music Services.

 

From Then, tap on the top left where it says All Services, and select Beta.
