This feature allows listeners to seamlessly tap and jump to listen or watch live content while a podcast is being recorded, effectively bringing the live experience directly to the podcast app. What It Does The Live Item Tag replaces the traditional "item" tag in an RSS feed and utilizes attributes such as "pending," "live," or "ended" to notify podcast apps of the live status of an episode. Essentially, it bridges the gap between live streaming platforms and podcast apps, enabling a smoother and more integrated experience for both podcasters and listeners. Status Options When using the Live Item Tag, podcasters can update the status of their episodes as "pending," "live," or "ended," providing real-time information to listeners about the live status of a particular episode.
