Spotify rolls out Polls for select podcasts

Spotify Polls

Spotify is rolling out Polls on Spotify Originals and Exclusives such as The Rewatchables, Incredible Feats with Dan Cummins and Crime Countdown.

With an intent to give listeners a chance to directly communicate with podcast hosts, Spotify is currently in the process to test Polls. The new feature will give podcasters the option to ask their audience questions within the app. Both the host and the listeners will be able to see the responses in real-time, opening up a new way of interaction on the app.

Through Polls, listeners can share feedback and opinions as requested by the show’s hosts, who can use that information to better connect with their fans in future episodes — whether it’s discovering what topics listeners want more of, or learning about the type of guests they love to hear from.

One can find the poll at the bottom of the episode page for any podcasts where the feature is activated, or on the episode’s Now Playing page. The feature is currently being rolled out for select podcasts, including like The Rewatchables, Incredible Feats with Dan Cummins, Crime Countdown, and more.

Responding to a Poll is completely optional and your answer remains anonymous. If one participates, they’ll be able to see how their response stacks up to other respondents. During the testing phase, this feature will be available on select podcasts for 90% of users across all markets on iOS and Android devices.
