Apple Podcasts Gets New Categories and Charts, Refreshed Recommendations, More

Posted June 20, 2023 at 3:48pm by iClarified
Apple has added nine subcategories to the Search tab in Podcasts, making it easier for listeners to discover their next favorite show among a variety of popular genres and topics.

These new subcategories are: Mental Health, Relationships, Self-Improvement, Personal Journals, Entrepreneurship, Documentary, Parenting, Books, and Language Learning.

Each subcategory has its own charts, which display the Top Shows and Top Episodes available in a listener's market. For example, a listener in the U.S. can browse the charts for Mental Health, which display the top 200 shows and top 200 episodes available in the U.S. based on a mix of listening, follows, and completion rate.

Apple has also refreshed recommendations and introduced the ability to explore Podcasts by Language.

Refreshed recommendations and enhanced categories
All 19 categories and these nine subcategories have been refreshed with new artwork and recommendations. These include Apple Podcasts Essentials — all-time favorite podcasts for each category curated by our global editorial teams — along with easy to navigate rows for charts and additional subcategories. Select categories, including Comedy, Society & Culture, Sports, and True Crime, will also regularly showcase New & Noteworthy shows, standout Shows of the Month, Featured Channels and Creators, and Global Highlights with popular shows from around the world.

Explore podcasts by language
Listeners in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia can also now explore Podcasts by Language to more easily find podcasts in their native language. Podcasts by Language features recommendations for some of the most popular languages in these markets with support for over 20 languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. For example, a U.S. listener can easily explore podcasts in Arabic, Chinese, French, and Spanish while a U.K. listener can explore podcasts in Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese. Select markets will feature an additional "Podcasts in English" destination.

Find categories and subcategories
Listeners can find all categories, subcategories, and Podcasts by Language from the Search tab on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, and browse the charts for a specific category or subcategory from the category page. A selection of charts for top categories are also accessible from Top Charts.

You can download Apple Podcasts from the App Store for free.
