Apple Podcasts App

Connect App Store subscriptions to Apple Podcasts

Make your app’s premium audio content available on Apple Podcasts

How it works

This fall, listeners will be able to connect eligible subscriptions to top apps on the App Store with Apple Podcasts to access new shows and other benefits. This includes leading global news apps, such as Bloomberg, The Economist, L’Équipe, The Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and WELT; health and fitness apps, including Calm; kids and family apps, like Lingokids; and many more. Apple Podcasts will automatically recognize these App Store subscriptions and add the corresponding channel or show to a listener’s Library.

Eligibility and requirements

Participating apps must have an active membership to the Apple Developer Program and Apple Podcasters Program and offer a subscription via App Store using in-app purchase. Apps that participate are subject to the same terms as those for auto-renewable subscriptions on the App Store.

Getting started

This new feature is available to Apple Developer Program members worldwide and subscriptions can be offered in 40 languages for over 170 countries and regions. Developers interested in making their premium audio content available on Apple Podcasts are encouraged to contact us.
