Apple Podcasts App

Ratings and reviews

Listeners can rate your podcast on a scale of one to five stars and can also add a written review. Ratings and reviews can be helpful to listeners as they explore new podcasts but do not influence charting. When a listener rates your podcast, it helps create your podcast’s average rating. 

Apple Podcasts displays the rating average on your show page and is specific to a country or region. For example, if a listener rates or posts a review with a Canadian Apple ID, that review or rating is only visible to other users in Canada. 

You can also read ratings and reviews on your show details page in Apple Podcasts Connect.
