Yesterday, we advance the future plans of Google with respect to podcasts. Apparently, the company intended to boost the popularity and bring this type of content to a greater number of people around the world, thanks to the integration of a player and podcast manager as an individual tool in Android.
But silently, and almost by surprise, Google has already begun deploying its podcast application on Android , which users of the operating system can now access easily, to start listening to their favorite programs or manage their subscriptions.
The first step in accessing the Google podcast platform will be perform a search through Search or Assistant, with the name of the podcast in question. If available, the title of the program will appear, along with its information and the different episodes, accompanied by a circular icon that allows us to reproduce them.
By clicking on the “More episodes” warning, we will see how a new panel appears, in which the information about the Show . plus a new icon in the upper left, which refers to podcasts. If we access it, it will be possible manage our subscriptions, discover new podcasts or reproduce those to which we are already subscribed.
But that is not all. From the options menu on the top right, or from the warning that will appear at the top if it is the first time you access this platform, it will be possible add the podcast application to the home screen , thus being able to access subscriptions at any time and, in short, use the service as if it were a Native podcast application.
It is true that hard-users of this type of content could take the odd option in the absence , despite the fact that both the player and the app itself have the essential tools. It is also necessary to comment that some programs are not available at the moment, although we trust that the catalog will continue to grow over the weeks. Be that as it may, we have been asking Google for a long time about the existence of an Android podcast app, and this is, without a doubt, a very good start.
