Spotify, an online streaming service, hosted its “Stream On” program in 2023, unveiling features and tools to aid musicians, podcasters, and artists in advancing their careers.
Spotify Founder and CEO Daniel Ek stated this during the morning keynote presentation. He said that Spotify increased its focus on discovery by unveiling a redesigned user interface that makes use of fresh visuals and an entirely fresh, interactive layout.
The CEO also unveiled new and enhanced tools to help creators build and grow audiences which would help artistes find the fans who will love their music most.
Daniel Ek said, “Just like with music, Spotify will now serve autoplay for podcasts. When a podcast ends, another episode will automatically start playing that fits the user’s tastes and is relevant.
“Stream On is about all the ways we are bringing Spotify to life and letting creators at all stages of their careers know that we are open for business.
“We are focused on building the best home for them – a place where they can establish a career, thrive and grow and where the world can be inspired by their creativity.
And that is what we have been doing for almost 17 years: building, improving and reimagining this home to better meet creator needs and help them chart new pathways to success.
“As we look to the future, we are excited to expand that ambition to even more creators across new formats.
“We are enabling more creativity, discovery, and personalisation than ever before by providing the best resources, support, and interactivity,” he added.
Speaking further Daniel said, “Spotify for podcasters now brings together the best of Spotify’s podcast creator tools into a one-stop shop to create, manage, grow, and monetise podcast content.
“Previously, Spotify’s most innovative features were limited to anchor users exclusively, but the company is building the new Spotify for podcasters in a way that offers more open access to innovation.
“As a result, all Spotify for Podcasters users—including those not hosting their content on Spotify, will find access to Question and Answer and Poll functionality in their dashboards.
“Starting today, when all creators sign up or log in to Spotify for Podcasters, they will find a dashboard with everything they need to make, manage, and level-up their show.”
