Spotify Mobile App Gains Podcast Timestamp Sharing Feature

Spotify has actually revealed the schedule of podcast timestamp sharing, a new function of its mobile app that lets users share podcasts beginning at a particular minute.
Formerly, it was just possible to share a podcast link to an entire episode on Spotify. Timestamp sharing implies the shared podcast will bet the recipient from the time that the sender selects, allowing them to highlight particular material.
To share a timestamp, users can tap the Share button while listening to an episode, use the “switch to share” feature at the current playtime, and then select how they want to share the material. Tapping the shared link jumps to the chosen playtime.
In another development, Spotify is unveiling an upgraded sharing menu in its mobile app, consisting of a method to sneak peek whats being shared, and an enhanced destination list based on the social apps the user has actually installed. The changes are linked to Spotifys decision to bring its Canvas function to Snapchat.
Formerly restricted to sharing on Instagram Stories, Canvas turns static tune pages in Spotify into video-art displays with the aid of eight-second visual loops. By previewing a Canvas being shared on Instagram or Snapchat, users will be able to see ahead of time how it will look on their social channel.
Late last month, Spotify announced a brand-new paid subscription platform for podcasts that enables podcasters to mark episodes as “subscriber only” without taking profits from their paid-for material. Spotify unveiled the platform simply a week after Apple revealed its own upcoming podcast membership service, for which Apple will gather 30% of podcast membership fees that developers generate in their first year.
