Spotify will soon allow users to record, edit, and publish podcasts directly from its platform. The feature was first seen in New Zealand last month, allowing users to create their podcasts without needing to use a separate app, such as Anchor, an app owned by Spotify, allowing users to record and publish podcasts.

Spotify executive and Anchor co-founder Michael Mignano stated that the launch of this feature would allow users to create podcasts with “no extra tools or hardware needed” he joined the company after it acquired Anchor in 2019.

A video posted by Spotify New Zealand gives us a better idea of what to expect from the new feature. The video features a section where users can record their podcasts with just a tap of a button and can pause whenever needed to take breaks. Users can edit the recorded clip and add background music through various tracks. Assign a title and description, and the podcast is set to be published.

In 2019, Spotify tested a “Create podcast” button, prompting users to download Anchor when clicked. There have yet to be any details as to when the tool will be available for users worldwide.

Elsewhere in tech, Musk has now amassed more than 100 million followers on Twitter.
