WHAT IS GOOGLE PODCASTS AND WHY IS IT COOL?

WHAT IS PODCAST?
Actually, the fact that Google released a free “Podcasts” app for Android – for no one is new, but a lot of avid users of all devices still do not fully understand what it is and how to use it.
 
At first, let’s look at Wikipedia. So, podcasting is the process of creating and distributing audio or video files in the style of radio and television programs on the Internet. As a rule, podcasts have a certain theme and periodicity of the publication. Google has released a separate application for listening to podcasts Google Podcasts. The service is available in 47 languages around the world, from the description on the ProductHunt.
 
You can listen to podcasts in Google Podcasts, subscribe to them and download offline auditions, and also adjust the playback speed.
 
WHY IS IT COOL
According to the representative of Google, the service indexed more than 2 million podcasts. Available including Russian-language podcasts. The service is free, subscription to Google Play Music or a separate subscription for listening to podcasts is not required. The service also supports synchronization with other user devices via Google Assistant: you can stop playback on your smartphone and continue listening to Google Home from the place where you left off.
 
NUANCES
While Google Podcasts is only available for Android devices. The plans to release a version for iOS in the company do not say. Previously, Google did not have a separate application for listening to podcasts, they can be listened to for free on Google Play Music.
 
By the way, there is no original application for listening to podcasts on Android, but there is a good choice among applications for podcasts. In all of them, there is a search among podcasts, the possibility of a subscription and so on. It is worth trying a few and staying at the most convenient for you.
