Search Enhancements

June 4, 2019

Apple Podcasts will allow listeners to discover shows based on audio transcripts, topics, and people. Moreover, show and episode pages will display images of hosts and guests that meet the guidelines below. If needed, review the latest Terms of Service in Podcasts Connect in order for your show to be eligible. 

  • Aspect ratio: 3:4
  • Size: minimum 1080 x 1440 pixels
  • Format: PNG or JPG

Additional guidelines:

  • Talent should face and look into the camera
  • Fit the entire face of the person within the image
  • Leave padding between edge of the image and the person's face
  • Optional: white background

Things to avoid:

  • No borders of any kind
  • No pixelation or low-resolution images
  • No typography or logos of any kind
  • Don't crop head, ears, or chin 

These search enhancements will first be available for selected top shows in English; more shows will be added later this year. Continue to explore Resources and Help to stay up to date on these developments.
