Spotify, the global streaming platform, is breaking language barriers with its innovative Voice Translation feature for podcasts. Powered by AI, this technology translates podcasts into various languages while retaining the original podcaster's voice and style, providing a more authentic listening experience.
This tool utilizes OpenAI's Whisper, a voice generation technology, to replicate the speaker's voice accurately, making it sound personal and natural.
Spotify has collaborated with notable podcasters like Dax Shepard, Monica Padman, Lex Fridman, Bill Simmons, and Steven Bartlett to translate select episodes into Spanish, with more languages like French and German coming soon.
The pilot rollout is available to Premium and Free users worldwide. As the podcasting audience on Spotify continues to grow, this innovation opens up exciting opportunities for creators and listeners to connect globally.
