Spotify Auto Podcast Transcription Feature Rolls Out in Beta to iOS and Android

Spotify will Start Auto-Transcribing Podcasts in the Coming Weeks

Spotify is starting to introduce a new feature that will help consumers enjoy a better podcast experience with an auto-transcription tool…

Spotify just recently announced a few new features to make its streaming app more accessible across iOS and Android. Included in the new tools is a podcast transcription system, which will first apply to exclusives and original shows over the coming weeks in a beta roll out. Consumers can read the transcript with or without audio and can also tap on text to quickly jump to that point in the content.

This is not only a great feature for accessibility but also, for consumers who want to scan and move around a given podcast to listen to a specific segment. It’s also helpful to individuals who would rather read than listen to a podcast. This should make pinpointing a particular portion of a show a cinch, searchable by scanning the transcript for the right part consumers are interested in most.

The transcription service isn’t the only new thing coming to the Spotify app. In addition, there will be changes to button colors, text formatting, and size. All of these ought to help in low light situations or when there’s high screen reflections.
