How to Delete Downloaded Podcasts in the Spotify iPhone App

Spotify Premium users have the ability to download audio directly to their devices. This allows for listening when you don’t have an Internet connection, or if you want to reduce your cellular data usage.

The ability to download isn’t limited to just songs, however, as you can also download podcast episodes.

But all of these downloads can take up a bit of space on your iPhone, as many podcast episodes are quite lengthy. And if you are an avid podcast listener, then you may have a lot of episodes saved to your device.

Our guide below is going to show you how to delete podcast episodes that you have downloaded through Spotify on your iPhone.

If you listen to your podcasts at night before you go to sleep, then check out our Apple Podcast sleep timer tutorial and find out how to use that feature of the app.
