Last week at Podcast Movement, Spotify took the stage to announce a suite of upcoming product updates across the Spotify listener and creator experience, giving podcasters even more opportunities to be discovered, grow, and monetize.

For many of your fans, your show page is where their listener journey began. That’s why we’re investing in new customization options that let you update your presence on Spotify and give listeners a more curated introduction to your show.

No matter where your show is hosted, you’ll soon be able to link to your social accounts from your bio, point new listeners to your best episode, recommend other content on Spotify, and more. Let’s take a look at each feature.
