YouTube has just released a new feature that allows us to use YT playlists as a “Podcast”. My guess is it is in response to Spotify and their acquisition of Anchor.
The main difference on YouTube’s playlist is more behind the scenes. They will now aggregate podcasts and push them separately as they have with their other products such as YouTube Music. No doubt monitization is gonna be a huge factor… MONITIZING from the creator that is. Time will quickly tell.
Since I am one of those creators that doesn’t have the time or energy to work with more than a few platforms, I welcome this new functionality and hope it gets the support and attention it requires to succeed. YouTube is a platform I am very familiar with and I look forward to this new feature as it rolls out.
This begs repeating… be sure not to forget to LIKE – COMMENT – SHARE & SUBSCRIBE if you haven’t already done so. Thank you for being awesome! 😚💋 – Sifu Z
