Podcast Chapters - What Are They, and How Do They Work?
You’ve likely already seen chapters added to YouTube videos, but what about in a podcast?
Below we’re breaking down what podcast chapters are, how they work, and why you should add them to your podcast episodes.
What Are Podcast Chapters?
Simply put, podcast chapters are timestamps in an audio file that provide your listeners with a way to jump to specific parts in your episodes.
Podcast chapters are great feature to offer your fans as they can use this timeline of the key moments in your episodes to quickly access the parts they are most interested in.
Also, if someone needs to stop listening part way through an episode, they can use chapters to skip right to the spot where they left off.
How Do I Set up Chapters?
Select “Chapters” and a new window will open that gives you the option to add a new chapter.
You’ll be able to select the beginning and end point of each chapter, and add custom chapter art that gives your listeners visual clues as to the focus of each chapter.
Once you have added all of your chapters, here’s a preview of how they’ll look when someone clicks on one of your episodes:
