Spotify released paid podcast news
Spotify, which has an important place in our lives as an online music platform, has a significant user base with its podcasts in recent years. Users prefer to spend fun and informative time at home, in the car, and while listening to podcasts on their journeys.
Variety Intelligence manager recently announced that Spotify aims to publish paid podcasts. 4 different models were proposed for this. It was stated that this subscription model, which is exclusive to podcasts, will not include music and 4 packages will cost between $2.99 and $7.99.
It was stated that early access and special content will be offered to paid subscribers, and the interest of users will be collected in this area. However, in the statement made by Spotify, the claims for paid subscriptions were denied. Spotify announced that it is doing routine research to improve user experience. Although Spotify has denied these allegations, for now, we can say that it will not be a surprise that it will make a fee in the future with the growth experienced on the podcast side. However, this type of strategy may be viewed negatively by users.
