You were listening to the Joe Rogan Experience or another popular podcast on Spotify, and it was such an awesome episode that you’ll love to listen to it again.  

Learning how to loop a podcast on Spotify can be a bit tricky because the method varies from how you’d loop a song. This is because you can’t choose podcasts to put on repeat.

You will have to add the podcast you want to repeat to a queue. This will ensure that it starts to play again after the podcast episode has finished.

Here are the steps on how to loop a podcast on Spotify:

  1. Start playing the podcast episode that you want to loop.
  2. Tap on the three dots located at the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Select the “Add to Queue” option.

  2. Press “Add to queue.” This ensures that the episode will be lined up to play after whatever is currently playing on your device.
