There are more than 3 billion user-generated playlists on Spotify. That means hours upon hours of carefully curated lists of tracks listeners can’t get enough of. Until recently, playlists were exclusive to music. But now, in the true spirit ofAudio First, Spotify users can combine music and podcasts on the same playlists.
With this recently released, frequently requested functionality, users can build playlists of podcasts, or add podcasts to existing playlists for a mixed-media experience. Users can also set up a playlist of multiple podcasts in a row—perfect for a long drive or maybe a run—or integrate their favorite songs with news, comedy, or sports podcasts. (Here’s an idea: set up a selection of sunny, feel-good songs for before, after, and in between a bunch of great true crime podcast episodes—you know, to balance yourself out.)
With these new opportunities for creativity, the options are endless. And the best part—it’s as easy as making a playlist full of music.
To add a podcast to a playlist on mobile:
- Simply navigate to a podcast episode you love.
- Tap the three dots to the right of the track or episode.
- Tap “Add to playlist.”
- Select a playlist you’ve already created you like to add it to.
- Or, tap to create a new playlist from scratch.
- Play around with interspersing podcast episodes with music tracks to curate hand-picked listening sessions.
- Share with your friends or make your playlists public—others are sure to love them too!
Then, once you’re ready to play hours of queued-up content, head back to “Your Library” to see all your playlists in one place under the “Playlists” tab in Music. Sound familiar? If you’ve ever made a playlist for your favorite songs, you’re already a pro.
**Pro tip: If you’re using Spotify on your computer desktop, you can stream the playlists you’ve made on mobile that include podcasts. You just can’t make a playlist with a podcast in it from your desktop—yet.
While it’s no secret that iTunes/Apple Podcasts still reigns supreme in the world of podcasting, many other platforms are taking a firm hold on the market. Spotify now has more than “250 million listeners across more than 75 countries worldwide,” and is one of the top directories to add your show.

Are You Receiving Errors When Submitting Your Podcast to Spotify?
Sometime users will receive an error message in Spotify when trying to add their podcast’s RSS feed.
Below aretwo of the most common errors and how to fix them:
1. Your podcast needs a globally unique identifier (GUID)
This means that your podcast feed is empty because you haven’t uploaded an episode to your podcast host. Until you do, Spotify won’t be able to find any episodes and will reject your show’s RSS feed.
After you upload the first episode, you can then resubmit your podcast’s RSS feed here, and you should be good to go.
2. Your podcast RSS feed is missing an email address/your email needs to be verified
You need an email address associated with your RSS feed which is pulled from the RSS feed for your podcast. Spotify relies on email verification to ensure you’re the owner of your podcast.
If the email address to verify your podcast is wrong, you’ll need to update the email address with your podcast host.
Now that you know how to upload a podcast to Spotify, and how to troubleshoot any errors you may get, you’re probably wondering how long it will be until your show is live.
Many shows are live within just a few hours, but it could take up t0 five days to appear.
Unfortunately, as of the time of this writing, it doesn’t appear that Spotify emails you to let you know that the podcast is live. So, you’ll need to keep checking Spotify to see when your show is live.
