Email verification & updating a podcast's email address

To add your podcast on the Google Play Music Podcast Portal, you need to verify ownership of the podcast using a verification code that we'll send to the email address included in your podcast's RSS feed. Learn more about RSS tags

  • If you don't include an email address in your podcast's RSS feed or don't have access to the email address included in your feed, you may need to update your feed.
  • If you’re using a podcast hosting service, you may need to update your podcast's RSS feed so it includes your email address.

After you've updated the email address included in your RSS feed, while adding your podcast, click Refresh email from RSS feed to continue the verification process.

Once you've added your podcast and completed the verification process, you can change or remove the email address from your podcast's RSS feed.
