I don't even know what to say, I can't play a single podcast in this app. Nothing works at all, constant "something went wrong message". No one has time for this, deleted and moved on to a podcast app that actually works. I'm not understanding Google apps, constant development destroys one app after...
I don't even know what to say, I can't play a single podcast in this app. Nothing works at all, constant "something went wrong message". No one has time for this, deleted and moved on to a podcast app that actually works. I'm not understanding Google apps, constant development destroys one app after another. I uninstalled the app but for some reason it's still open on my phone, but the app is uninstalled?

Pretty good. Quick but it seems to have problems remembering if I have listened to a podcast or not. Also it's annoying that the play bar stays when you finish the podcast. I can't count the amount of times I have accidentally touched the bar and it's started playing again. This also means the app d...

I can't count the amount of times I have accidentally touched the bar and it's started playing again. This also means the app doesn't register that I have already listen to the episode.

How AT GOOGLE do you guys not know links can not be copied & pasted nor clicked? 2nd update September 14, 2020: It was perfect again & sucks now!!!! I want the old version. UPDATE March 25, 2020 : Hate new layout. Why do that when people get used to it a different way? If there is no way to choose new or old layout, I'm getting rid of Google podcasts. Original Review: Love it! I like how it tells me there's new episodes of my favorite podcasts.

Google play music can be set to automatically download episodes of my favorite podcasts so I can take them on the road without having to use data or remember to download them myself. I don't see this feature on this app and I haven't been able to successfully download episodes with this app. This is a deal breaker for me. If Play music goes away I will not be using this-I'm uninstalling!
