Anchor is now part of Spotify for Podcasters
The new Spotify for Podcasters combines the experiences of Spotify’s podcasting suite all in one place. How you use Spotify for Podcasters depends on whether your podcast is hosted with Spotify (formerly Anchor) or hosted on another platform.
- If your podcast is hosted with Spotify (formerly Anchor), check out the section below called Hosted with Spotify.
- If your podcast is hosted with Megaphone, refer to the section below titled Hosted with Megaphone.
- If your podcast is hosted elsewhere, check out the section below called Hosted somewhere else.
If you’re not sure which login option to choose, remember that your hosting service is where you upload your files to get distributed to Spotify. If you upload your files using a platform like Buzzsprout or Libsyn, head to the Hosted somewhere else section - your podcast is distributed to Spotify, but not hosted with Spotify.
Hosted with Spotify
Log in at http://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/login
Hosting with Spotify offers you the ability to distribute your content to other platforms, ways to monetize your content, and access to all of our creation tools to help you make your show.
If you previously used Anchor, you log in with the same credentials or method you used with Anchor. Your episodes, analytics, and earnings aren't affected by Anchor becoming Spotify for Podcasters.
Hosted with Megaphone
Log in at https://megaphone.spotify.com/
If you’re hosted with Megaphone, continue to use Megaphone to manage your podcast. You can use Spotify for Podcasters as a supplemental tool to check on your show’s Spotify analytics and utilize Spotify’s fan engagement tools like polls and Q&A.
You’ll need to connect a Spotify account to Spotify for Podcasters in order to log in. If you’ve previously used a Spotify account to log in, you can continue doing so. If you don’t have a Spotify account, or want to create a new one, you can do so here.
Hosted somewhere else
Log in at http://podcasters.spotify.com/dash
If your podcast is hosted with Buzzsprout, Libsyn, Podbean, or any other host, you can use Spotify for Podcasters as a way to check how your podcast’s performing on Spotify, and interact with your Spotify listeners using tools like polls and Q&A.
Some creators also have the ability to upload video episodes on Spotify – you can check whether or not you have access by heading to your Spotify for Podcasters account.
You’ll need to connect a Spotify account to Spotify for Podcasters in order to sign up, then claim your podcast on Spotify for Podcasters.
If you had access to Spotify for Podcasters before the switch, you can continue to log in using your Spotify account.
Do I have to host with Spotify to use Spotify for Podcasters?
No! We offer experiences for creators that host elsewhere, and offer the ability for you to interact with your listeners on Spotify and check your analytics, with more features coming in the future.
What if I used Anchor? How do I log into my Spotify for Podcasters account?
If you previously used Anchor, log in at http://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/login using the same login credentials you used with Anchor.
I have multiple podcasts hosted with Anchor. How do I access all of them in one place now on Spotify for Podcasters?
At this time, hosting podcasts with Spotify (formerly Anchor) requires you to maintain separate login credentials for each podcast. In the future, we'll continue to build experiences that make managing your shows easier.
I have a podcast hosted with Spotify and a podcast on another platform. Can I use Spotify for Podcasters for both?
Yes! Head to http://podcasters.spotify.com or the Spotify for Podcasters mobile app and log out if necessary:
- If you're using http://podcasters.spotify.com on a desktop device, click Settings > Log out in the top-right.
- If you're using http://podcasters.spotify.com on a mobile device, tap your avatar in the top-left, then the arrow at the bottom, and select Log out.
- If you're using the Spotify for Podcasters mobile app, go to Your Podcast, tap the 3 dots, then Log out.
Then hit Log in and select the experience that you’d like to access. For your podcast hosted with Spotify, you’ll need to use an individual login per show. For any podcast not hosted with Spotify, you can log in to Spotify for Podcasters using a Spotify account.
My team or network has a podcast with Anchor, but I use Spotify for Podcasters to view analytics. How do I access that experience?
Log in at http://podcasters.spotify.com/dash using the Spotify account that you previously used to view analytics on Spotify for Podcasters.
My account is empty. Where have all my episodes gone?
You may be logging into a different account. To log out:
- On Spotify for Podcaster web, hit Settings > Log out.
- On the mobile app, go to Your Podcast, tap the 3 dots, then Log out.
Then try logging in using the credentials you used on Anchor.
