Podcast Capsule

The Podcast Capsule Template creates a capsule dedicated to a specific podcast feed.

Creating a Podcast Capsule

Select the template in Bixby Developer Studio (Bixby Studio). Choose the language for your capsule.

Podcast Capsule Entry

  1. In the RSS Feed URL field, enter the URL for your podcast.
  2. Click Next Step.
  3. Enter a capsule ID for your new capsule, such as playground.dadJokes.
  4. Select a path and filename for the new capsule (or accept Bixby Studio's suggested default).

The capsule will be created for you in Bixby Studio, and a README file will be opened suggesting next steps and customizations.

By default, the capsule has training for the utterance "Play", which will start playing the most recent episode of the podcast, and it will use the image defined in the RSS feed as the channel's image. (Note that the player will not switch images for each individual episode, even if they are defined in the feed's items.) The playlist will be ordered from most recent to oldest.
