I use on AppleTV and iOS the podcast app weekly. In headlines there were sad news about privacy Apple is going to let podcast creators — and advertisers — see what listeners actually like:
A new version of Apple’s podcast app will provide basic analytics to podcast creators, giving them the ability to see when podcast listeners play individual episodes, and — crucially — what part of individual episodes they listen to, which parts they skip over and when they bail out of an episode.
The reason all of that is important is that up until now, Apple has provided almost no data at all about podcast listening behavior — just the fact that someone has downloaded an individual episode.
How to opt-out of the data collection? Is there no other way than change Podcast client?
