Spotify are going to be introducing a new UI for Spotify Premium customers which will split between Music and Podcasts.
The Podcasts section will also split between Episodes, Downloads and Shows. This is all done via a swipe right feature that Spotify really should have been using for some time, but haven’t.
I think this is a very positive change, but it shows Spotify’s intent to really drive listeners into Podcasts (which makes them a higher margin and even pushes podcasts that they own!).
