Updating Your RSS Feed on Spotify After Redirecting to Anchor

After redirecting your podcast to Anchor, you will need to update your hosting provider in Spotify for Podcasters to ensure that your Spotify listing is up-to-date. 

In order to update your RSS hosting provider you will need to set up your Spotify for Podcasters account. (Note: setting up your Spotify for Podcasters account will also give you valuable insights into your podcast's episode performance, demographics, and more!)

**If you already have your Spotify for Podcasters account set up, feel free to skip to Step 3.

Step 1: Change Email Address in your RSS Feed

  • Click 'Settings' in the top right of your Dashboard, and select 'Distribution
  • Under Distribution (and next to your RSS Feed), you can toggle on or off 'Display personal email address publicly in RSS feed'  
  • Remember to click 'Save' to update this change to your RSS feed
  • After approximately 10 minutes, you can check your RSS feed to confirm this change

Step 2: Input your podcast's RSS feed URL into Spotify for Podcasters

  • Visit podcasters.spotify.com
  • Complete the initial setup flow
  • Enter your Anchor RSS feed when prompted for a podcast you own the rights to 
  • Spotify will send an email with an 8-digit code to the email from Step 1
  • Enter that code on the final page and you're all set!
