After less than a day on Spotify for podcasts, I can say the desktop experience is not very good but the mobile one is OK. They have a lot of work to do to catch up to the status quo in the podcast player space.

    However, being able to control my desktop podcast playback using the iOS app is pretty neat.

    The state of the Spotify desktop app was what eventually drove me to try out Apple Music, and subsequently switch over. The mobile app is better — for one thing, it worked a lot more reliably for me.

    Apple Music has one major disadvantage, for me (still on macOS Mojave), which is its reliance on the iTunes app. It works fine most of the time, but when it doesn’t it can be really infuriating!
