Spotify launches Your Daily Podcasts , a personalized playlist that predicts which podcasts the user wants to listen to. The streaming service reports Tuesday.
The idea is the same as with Discover Weekly and the Daily Mix, two existing functionalities of Spotify, but focuses on podcasts instead of music.
Spotify's algorithm analyzes your listening behavior - think of podcasts that you listened to last and podcasts that you follow - and choose podcasts that best suit those.
This can be a episode of a podcast that you are already listening to, a stand-alone episode from another podcast, or a current episode of a podcast that is updated every day.
For podcasts that contain a strong narrative element, the listener will only hear the pilot episode or a trailer to avoid spoilers.
