I've used this app since it was launched almost 6 years ago and it has been very good the entire time, easy to browse for new podcasts, easy to find anything you'd want to do as a podcast listener. I will not be switching over to YouTube Music or whatever Google decides is better than this, I will be switching to another dedicated podcast player.

PLEASE BRING THE APP BACK! I held on to this app as long as I could before it kicked me off 2 days after the end date. No other app compares to the simplicity of this app. I could easily locate my podcast, queue any next podcast I want to listen to (still haven't found a good app that does this without any issues). I had hardly any streaming issues, in fact my only issues started to arise in the weeks leading up to this app ending. The app ran so smooth. By far my favorite podcast app 😃😥

PSA to us looking for alternatives: try "Pocket Casts." Free, easy to import my podcast list, and great, simple UI. Used it for a month since Google Podcasts EOL announcement and I love it. To Google: unfortunate you decided to discontinue a good app. Kudos to the Prod & Dev team. It's very clean, simple, and works well. However, YouTube Music app is already overcrowded and getting more bloated.
