With Create, it is possible to easily add a podcast which is hosted on Spotify, to your website. This might be a podcast that you have recorded or one you would like to share on your website as interactive content.
The process of adding the podcast is quick and Spotify will generate a widget for you so visitors will be able to listen to the podcast right from your website.
Visit the Spotify Web Player by clicking this link
Use the search bar in the player to find the podcast you would like to add to your website.
When you have found the episode, click the 3 dot icon followed by Share > Embed episode
A modal will pop up allowing you to customise the embed player. You can adjust a few aspects, including when the audio should start and the colour and size of the player.
After making your choices click the COPY button. Your device will have then copied the code from Spotify, for that specific podcast episode.
Further details and instructions for locating the embed code can be found on Spotify's website here.
