Spotify lets all mobile listeners add podcasts to playlists

Spotify is continuing to expand its podcast options for listeners. The latest move is an option to include both music and podcasts in a single playlist. The company noted in the blog post announcing the update that this has been a frequently requested feature. Users can mix and match any amount of podcast episodes and music tracks in their playlists, including adding podcasts to their existing collections.

For now, the function is limited to Spotify’s mobile apps. Mixed media playlists can be heard from the desktop program, but can’t be created there yet.

This feature expands on one of Spotify’s recent personalized programming playlists. The Your Daily Drive playlist introduced a radio-style mix of music and podcast content designed for commuters.
