If you created your account with Anchor and are seeing an error message when logging in:

  1. Clear your browser's cache and cookies. Check your browser's settings or help section for info on how to do this.
  2. Head to http://podcasters.spotify.com/pod.
  3. Log in using the same credentials you used with Anchor.

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 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 as your podcast is only distributed to Spotify, but not hosted with Spotify.

Hosted with Spotify

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'll log in with the same credentials or method you used with Anchor. Your episodes, analytics, and earnings won’t be affected by Anchor becoming Spotify for Podcasters. 

Hosted with Megaphone

If you’re hosted with Megaphone, you can 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

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 will 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. You’ll then need to claim your podcast on Spotify for Podcasters, which we have instructions on how to do here.

If you’ve previously used a Spotify account to log in, you can continue doing so.


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.
