Apple has lightened the rules for podcast-hosting providers.
Starting in 2023, the owner tag and email address will no longer be required and will not be supported. This should eliminate any aggravating emails being sent to podcast creators, one report says.
Creators need only have an Apple ID to submit a show, Apple said in a post on Monday.
Apple also announced several other technical changes for podcasts:
In addition, Apple clarifies that podcasts will be available in the Apple Podcasts catalog after the creator clicks "Add." Creators can then use the show URL to generate promotions. But it will take up to 24 hours for episodes to appear in search results and personalized recommendations.
Last week, Apple announced the debut of Apple Podcasts Charts, which measure the most popular shows and episodes in a given market by listening, follows and completion rates.
