Apple on Monday launched a new embeddable web player for its Podcasts, giving creators, marketers, and listeners new options for sharing and playing podcast content.
The web player is customizable and includes the most recent episodes of a single podcast. It’s also interactive, allowing listeners to play an entire episode without moving to another app or webpage. Users can also use the web player to open the Apple Podcasts app so that they can learn more about a program or add it to their subscriptions.
Listeners can also generate embed codes through the Share icon on the Preview page for a show or individual episode. Apple said that the new feature should be available broadly starting Monday.
As an example, here is the embeddable web player for the AppleInsider Podcast.
Apple added web playback support for its podcasts platform back in April 2019. The new feature on Monday will allow users to create embedded web players for any of Apple’s more than 1.5 million shows.
