Spotify has unveiled it’s new customer interface and given a higher prioty than has previously been the case to podcasts.

There are three distinct areas in the Podcast section.

Episodes, Shows and Downloads mirrors the Apple Podcast hierarchy lending a familiar feel across both competing streaming sites.

The Library page on Apple lists the most recently updated of the shows to which you are subscribed. That same function is now in the Shows section of Spotify.

The time that consumers are spending on podcast rather than music content is no doubt driving the shared primacy between the two on Spotify, something that would not have seemed possible a few years ago when the streaming site was all about music and playlists.

Here’s a primer on how the new Spotify looks and feels.
