Just got a new Google pixel and the phone came with this app. I can't even believe it. A place for all my podcasts, it's totally free. Updates fast with new episodes. If I wanted to complain about one thing, i wish there was some type of volume normalization option, some podcasts are a bit lower in volume than others, working in a noisy environment, sometimes that's annoying. But I love the app regardless!

Love the free audio and variety of content. I like to listen to podcasts as I fall asleep. I can't figure out how to create a queue of podcasts, by clicking play next, then stop playing additional podcasts to which I have subscribed, even though I didn't click play next. I've tried adjusting the settings but it seems it's an all or none setup. This issue drains data and battery. Also, there is no way to review podcasts.

It does what it's meant to do, but it's not without its problems. Podcasts which have been listened to randomly show up as I listened, causing them to be played again when using Android Auto for example. No updates in six months, and no support for your flagship WearOS device. It seems yet another Google product left to die on the vine, it's embarrassing.
