Absolutely love this app & would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who enjoys podcasts! Easy to use, lots of cool features to enhance your listening experience, ability to make Playlist folders to keep all of your favorites in one convenient spot, and there's even streaming options. However it would have been all 5 stars if the streaming was actually working, for some reason when I click on the icon it just keeps loading and if I tap the screen it dissappears as if I never tried :(

IMO, Google's podcast app is middle of the road. It doesn't really have any useful features, nor does it get in your way while navigating through it. There's no way to migrate your podcast subscriptions from any other source, there's also no dedicated now playing widget. Long story short, I believe I'm being fair when I say that it's utterly average when it comes to podcasting apps.

Very decent podcast app. It has every setting/option I personally would need. The algorithm recommends me such good podcasts based on my listening activity, and I like the interface. I wish there was a way to add something to my library/listen to later list instead of adding it to my queue/downloads. Sometimes switching between devices will lose your progress and I've had it completely delete all my history. I'm also worried about committing to this app in case Google kills it.
