Is this a decade of podcast attack? I started thinking so, and I started falling in love with him. As an
Android user, I recognize and acknowledge that Apple has long had an advantage in this category. Google has tried unsuccessfully to come up with a standalone podcast app that could compete with iOS. Looks almost like they’ve given up. Now they have released Google Podcasts, hoping to fight again.
Initially, this app is much missing and is unlikely to attract loyal users of third-party
apps to Google Side. But if you’re interested in trying it out in terms of size, here are some tips for using it. Start
Please download the
application first Play in the store. You also need the latest version of Google and Google Assistant to make it work together.
When you open the Google Podcast, you’ll notice that it looks minimalist. There is nothing on the
screen other than what is needed to run the program.
After the first use, you will see a section called “For You”. This section has three tabs: a list of new podcast episodes you’ve already subscribed to, episodes you’re listening to but not yet finalized, and your downloads.
Scroll down after the “For You” section to see a list of recommendations based on the best and hottest podcasts.
Finally, the app offers podcasts in categories such as comedy, news and politics, society and culture, religion and spirituality, art and sports.
Playing a podcast
When you click a podcast, you can browse episodes and see a recommendation for another similar podcast you want to review.
To play an episode, click the circle arrow next to the episode name.
When you play a podcast, it appears at the bottom of the screen, and you can compress it to take up only a small amount of space. From this screen, you can pause, pause, rewind, fast forward, or change the playback speed. Google Podcasts offers sixteen different speeds for listening to your 0.5x to 2x episodes.
You can control playback with the voice commands “stop”, “pause” and “resume”. When you’re ready to continue, be sure to say “
Ok Google, keep listening to the stuff you should know.“This will ensure that you get the right result.
This is how you move all your stuff
Search for a podcast and the app will display two podcasts with a list of recent episodes.
There is also a drag and drop list of other possible matches. If you’ve searched for a specific person or group and haven’t seen the results you want, you can click “Search the Web” and search for a podcast there. You also have the option to add this podcast to the app.
Return to the presentation
If you’ve shown that you use it regularly, “Add to Home Screen” creates an icon on the Home screen for that program. To go directly to the podcast, tap. Find this option in the menu options in the upper right corner of the screen.
Google Podcasts integrates with Google Assistant and other Google devices. This connection allows you to stop listening to the podcast on one
device and continue where you left off on the other device. Present vs. future
This Google technology seems to be in its infancy. However, we can guess he won’t stay there long. Disadvantages of the current application include the inability to evaluate episodes or series and you cannot create playlists. For some reason, podcasts do not yet support streaming. Plus, there are plenty of other bells and whistles that other display apps have that serious podcast fans will miss.
In the future, Google will integrate more of its AI features into the Podcasts app. Artificial intelligence technology allows the application to display subtitles and transcribe them in real time in the language of your choice. These features open up podcasts for the hearing impaired and allow us to listen to programs around the world.
When you open the app for the first time, the suggestions are very general at first and recommend already popular podcasts. During use, Google promises that the recommendations will become more specific to your needs and tastes. And as users everywhere start using it and narrow down their choices, this information will help everyone. The Apple podcast app usually advertises the most popular podcasts. Google plans to use its app to bring everyone, including the little guy, to a successful podcast.
