Dear Podcast Provider,

Below are some updates to help improve the experience for your listeners on Apple Podcasts.

Apple Podcasts for Mac Now Available
Learn more about using the new Apple Podcasts app with macOS Catalina.

Search Enhancements
Listeners can now search the audio from top English language shows in Apple Podcasts to discover topics and people. Also, show and episode pages display images of hosts and guests.

These enhancements are only available for selected top shows in English. More podcasts will be added over time; please review and accept the latest Terms of Service in Podcasts Connect for your show to be eligible for these features.

If your show already has these enhancements and you’d like to update or add images of hosts and guests, please contact us. Submissions for podcast guests must also include a signed photo release.
