As Spotify expands into the podcast market, the app will now combine sports podcasts with new songs to form one playlist. Sports fans can enjoy listening to game analysis and songs without changing categories.
Spotify’s New Daily Sports Playlist
With the NBA and MLB restarting after their COVID-19 shutdown, Spotify is debuting the Daily Sports playlist for fans. In April and June, the app had launched other playlists like the Daily Wellness and Your Daily Drive.
Engadget says that the Daily Sports playlist will include sports podcast episodes and songs from your favorite or new artists. Now you can listen to the hottest songs while also following game analysis from your favorite pundits.

What Can I Listen to on Daily Sports?
The Daily Sports playlist will include episodes from podcasts like Sports News Minute with Larry Brown or ESPN Daily. Aside from those shows, the playlist will also feature episodes of The Ringer podcast. Spotify had bought The Ringer early in the year. With such a wide variety of podcast choices, you won’t suffer a sports drought again.
Spotify’s Personalized Playlists
For many users, Spotify’s personalized playlists are the app’s main draw. These playlists include Discover Weekly and Release Radar. Aside from that, Spotify also gives users a series of Daily Mix playlists, which contain songs from artists they listen to the most.
With podcasts, Spotify plans to apply the same philosophy. With Daily Sports, they’re looking to integrate podcasts more into users’ daily listening.
Spotify subscribers in the US can try out Daily Sports today. For both mobile and web apps, you can find the playlist in the Made For You section.
