Featured with a catalog of 30+ million songs, several social features and clever new tools, Spotify is definitely the go-to music streaming app for most people. At the same time, it’s also a platform where you can listen to many of the best podcasts ever created. Spotify offers thousands of podcast to stream, and its podcast roster includes big-name audio productions that you’ve probably heard of before, like Radiolab and Pod Save America, but it also makes room for smaller shows that are just as high-quality. Spotify users can listen to podcast directly from the app. And with the Premium account, they are able to save Spotify podcast for offline playback with ease. But curiously, if you search for the Spotify relevant forums with phrase like "download Spotify podcast on desktop", you'll probably find that most people complain of this issue that they fail to add podcast to playlist and download them offline on computer:
-- Why can I download episodes of podcasts on my phone but not on my laptop?
-- How can we download podcasts on the computer to listen to it offline (just like any song)? We can't add them to playlists either.
-- ... I find it weird that we can download podcasts on the Spotify Mobile App but not on the Spotify software on desktop. Can you please add this function to the desktop software the soonest possible please. I would like to be able to download podcasts on the desktop software as well please. Thank you.
