New podcast discovery and accessibility improvements
In addition to these improvements there is a new search system, which includes tags to filter the results that reorganize their presentation in a more accessible way in thematic cards. Also, it incorporates a new related tab to the podcast screen, where listeners can find other shows and playlists from the creators, as well as other similar podcasts.
The home page also features changes aimed at facilitating the discovery of new content, with larger personalized recommendation covers and direct access to the explore section, which offers thousands of episodes, podcasts, audiobooks and radios on any topic. The company works to incorporate a greater depth of thematic exploration that facilitates the discovery of collections curated by its editorial experts. Also, for listeners with limited time, the new “Surprise me” button allows them to instantly receive episode suggestions based on their interests and listening times.
The new app also facilitates access to the listener’s content and, with the new Library section, puts their favorite content always at their fingertips. In the Library they will find their podcasts, lists, downloads and other content in one place. Visually, the platform has a more elegant, minimalist and efficient design, with a dark mode that improves visibility and battery consumption.
As in previous versions, the app is still compatible with CarPlay, and its new version renews the car mode for safer driving. Likewise, iVoox is working on its adaptation for Apple Watch, which will allow listening to all its podcasts, radios and audiobooks without the need to carry your cell phone with you.
