Google Podcasts Now Available on iPhones

Google is rolling out a fairly major update to its Google Podcasts app this week. Google Podcasts is coming to iPhones for the first time, and it’s also getting improvements on other platforms.

The launch of Google Podcasts for iOS comes following a new redesign of Podcasts on Android. The new app has been updated to be better organised, giving users quick access to their subscribed podcasts.

With the new design, the Home tab features a feed of all the new episodes from podcasts you love. From the Explore tab, users can get show and episode recommendations based on their interests, and browse podcasts from different categories. And the Activity tab will give you access to your listening history, queued up episodes, and downloads.

For the first time ever, Google is letting users access subscriptions on Google Podcasts for Web with the latest update. And those on Android will now be able to enable automatic downloads, so new episodes for podcasts they subscribe to will be automatically downloaded for offline listening.

You can get Google Podcasts for iOS here, while the update to the Android app is rolling out starting this week.

    <p>Don't see it yet on Apple's App Store but I'll keep checking. Hopefully they add automatic downloads to iOS soon, that's a must have feature.</p>

    <p>Not sure this is any better than Apple's native podcast app. What am I missing?</p>

    <p>I wish they could modernize this a bit and provide a synchronized web app to go with the mobile apps.</p><p><br></p><p>Remember the days when Google pushed for web first and dedicated apps only when necessary?</p>
