As probably every podcaster already knows, at the end of May, Apple communicated that they will soon require secure podcast feeds as part of publishing podcasts with them.
Personalised podcasting is what we’re about and we’re always looking for new ways to give you podcast fans the most intuitive user experience possible. That’s why we’re pleased to say that one of the most requested features has finally arrived; the ability to see which episodes you’ve already listened to and how many minutes you have left on specific episodes.
For all you podcast bingers out there, this will be the answer to your podcasting prayers! Our interface updates make it clear to see exactly where you were in a podcast series and means you have one less thing to remember, this way you’ll always be on track with your listening schedule.
Let’s set the scene: you’re home, you’re sitting back and relaxing, and you’re pretty set on never getting up off the couch again. Putting on a great podcast would be the cherry on the cake.
Now you can fill your home with the sounds of your favorite podcast thanks to our new Spreaker Podcast Radio Chromecast/AirPlay compatibility! Using your smartphone or tablet as a remote control, you’ll be able to play all the true crimes, dramas, and news shows you love without having to do more than lifting a finger.
You’ve got it all under control – introducing Spreaker’s new Content Management System!
The Content Management System, or CMS, is a powerful new tool that makes general podcast and content management a cinch, so that you can make quick changes as needed. We’ve taken care of the tech so that podcasters can stick to what they do best: podcasting.
You’ll find it all there – the CMS is a full view of your operation and output at a glance. It’s chockfull of new features that allow you to do loads of things, like customize your embedded player, manage multiple episodes at once, adjust cover image sizes, and much more.
As every podcaster already knows, tackling a topic from different points of view is a sure way to bring the quality of his or her content to a higher level. However, having different points of view usually means more voices to manage, with co-hosts and guests weighing in on your discussion. It can’t be said enough that mastering an excellent podcast interview or steering a heated conversation already requires good speaking skills, experience, organization, and the right equipment.
So what happens when you’re not all in the same place? Maybe your co-host is live-streaming right from the location you’re covering (like a sports match), or you work remotely (like we do at Spreaker, by the way), or, more often than not, the expert that you want to interview can’t get to your studio. In that case, the best solution is to use Skype, and with Spreaker Studio for Desktop it’s very easy to set up.
In the past few weeks we’ve been pushing out some new releases to our iOS Apps; some of you have reached out because they couldn’t find the statistics screen on the Spreaker Podcast Radio app anymore.
As of now, listener analytics are only displayed on Spreaker Studio and this means that if you are a content producer you should have already downloaded the Spreaker Studio App for iOS in order to access your stats. In a few months (we can’t reveal the date just yet) we’ll be launching a complete renewal of Spreaker Podcast Radio App for iOS which will give users a much better podcast listening experience, like we already did on Android.
