The Information is overflowing with a rumor that matches Loup Ventures’ defense of the potential of Apple’s regular applications to become services. According to the outlet, Apple plans to launch a new subscription service based on podcasts. In exchange for a monthly fee, customers could access exclusive podcasts.
It would be something like a “Podcasts +”, in order to generate more income and to better compete with all the competitors who have invested efforts in promoting this type of media. Apple would only need establish better conditions for podcasters
A service that can get feedback from the rest
In fact, the idea was already present in Spotify, a service that reportedly considers charging anywhere from $ 3-8 per month for a catalog of exclusive, ad-free podcasts. Apple can do something similar and add it to its subscription fan, include it in the Apple One package, and continue to consolidate its platform.
Also, a ‘Podcasts +’ too can retrieve content from Apple TV + and other services. It would be interesting to see spin off
Right now, this is something Apple is researching and starting conversations with with some production companies. It can be done, maybe not. We will see it in time. If you’ve never dared to podcasts, remember that in Applesfera we have our weekly chats and our daily infinite loop.
