As Spotify continues to differentiate its brand with videos, podcasts, and music, it would be incredibly useful for users to have one place that keeps a running list of all the new releases from the shows and music that they follow.
Users will be able to see all their new releases from podcasts, artists/bands, and video series that they follow.
Think of it as a constantly running Release Radar, but for everything.
There are many artists/bands that release music before Friday. Listeners may not even be aware that they released anything until Friday when it appears on their Release Radar.
One benefit of this is users may forget about something that they follow and never remember to check to see if it has been updated. This allows them to never miss an episode or a song, and never lose interest.
