Google Play Music is no longer only about music, now it also lets you listen to podcasts. The podcasts section is already available in the web interface and it’s rolling out to the Android app in the US and Canada.
“We’ll connect you with podcasts based on what you’re doing, how you’re feeling and what you’re interested in. Similar to our contextual playlists for music, we want to make it easy to find the right podcast – whether you’re a podcast aficionado or listening for the first time,” informs Google.
Here are some podcasts that are available: “Freakonomics Radio”, “The Nerdist”, “Radiolab”, “Stuff You Should Know”, “TED Radio Hour”, “This Week in Tech”, “WTF with Marc Maron”, “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!”.
When you subscribe to a podcast, the Android app will automatically download the most recent episodes or notify you when there’s a new episode.
