Tech giant Apple announced the postponement of the launch of Podcasts subscriptions and channels, which it plans to roll out this month, in an email to creators.
Apple announced in an email to creators that it is delaying the launch of Podcasts subscriptions and channels, which are expected to be available this month, until June. The company said the change was made because it aims to provide the best experience for creators and listeners.
Podcasts subscriptions, first announced in April, will allow users to take advantage of premium features created by creators, such as exclusive content, ad-free listening, and early access to published content. Users will also be able to discover groups of programs with titles, descriptions, and covers compiled by creators with Apple Podcasts channels that will be available. The subscription service and channels were expected to be released with iOS 14.6, but the company announced that the launch had been postponed.
In an email to creators, he said: “Podcasts subscriptions and channels will start in June to ensure we deliver the best experience for creators and listeners. We look forward to seeing your new subscriptions and channels, and look forward to ingesting them to listeners around the world soon,” the statement said.
The email also says that delays in accessing Apple Podcasts Connect have been fixed and that additional improvement will be released for the Library in the coming weeks.
