The New Roll Out Of Google Podcasts
I wouldn’t necessarily expect “normal” or casual podcast listeners to jump right on the Google Podcasts App that recently rolled out but then again it is Google and chances are it has already been promoted within most email accounts using Gmail.
Before I go off the rails here let me explain that I use Google Play Music to listen to podcasts so after reading a bit about Google Podcasts I was pretty excited to get things started. My excitement fizzled out pretty quickly once I started bumping around the APP…I won’t go as far as saying that I assumed but I had counted on pretty heavily that the new Google Podcasts App would auto-sync the podcasts I had subscribed to using Google Play. It didn’t.
For that one reason alone I do not recommend Google Podcasts for anyone who has ever used any other podcast catcher.
Stick with what you are using or find another podcast catcher to listen to podcasts. The other option is to wait for a few months until Google figures our exactly what they want to be with future generations of Google Podcasts.
