To get started, you’ll need to open the Alexa companion app on your iPhone or Android, and set Spotify as your default provider. To do that, head to Settings > Music & Podcasts > Manage New Services. After that’s done, whenever you ask Alexa for an episode of a podcast, it will be streamed from Spotify’s library.
Spotify says consumption of its podcasts has doubled within the last year. The music streaming service is increasingly placing emphasis on its podcast collection, which includes worldwide exclusives from comedian Joe Rogan as well as Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
In the latest Spotify Wrapped, which includes detailed statistics about your listening habits on the app throughout the last year, Spotify included a dedication section about podcast streaming for the first time.
