How to Activate Spotify for Your Listeners

As a creator, one of the biggest advantages of Supercast is that it's extremely easy for your subscribers to listen to your premium content in a podcast player of their choice.

Now...Spotify is yet another listening choice for your subscribers. Heck yeah!

Please note:
  • This is currently only available to Supercast creators on the All-in plan. (We hope to make this available for Custom creators soon.)
  • Spotify does not make listener metrics available to Supercast. You will need to log in to your “Spotify for Podcasters” dashboard to review Spotify activity.
  • Spotify listeners will not receive any personalized episodes or episodes targeted to plans you have set up.

Activating your Premium Feed on Spotify means two things:

Your free podcast feed on Spotify will remain unchanged.

How to activate Spotify
