Google’s Podcast App Gets New UI, Better Organizational Capabilities

Listening to podcasts is something that has become a favorite pastime for a lot of people with all things having been considered and taken into account. While most people would prefer to get their podcasts from other sources, Google Podcast has become a relatively popular way for people to get the podcasts that they love because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing them to create a library of different episodes that they can slowly start to sort through.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Google Podcasts has been lacking some organizational capabilities. While the RSS feed became a great way for people to check out what new podcasts were available for them, it became a bit of a cluttered mess. The new UI that is being integrated into Google Podcasts is going to solve a lot of these issues. As per 9to5G, your subscription feed would now have a more minimal look to it, with a More tab that you can click on to see a wider range of podcast selections.

Another feature that people will find useful is the ability to mark certain podcasts if you’ve already seen them. This can help you to sort out what you have seen from what you haven’t seen yet, thereby enabling you to reduce the amount of time that might have been required to ascertain what content you have yet to get to.

Google has not exactly found massive success in the world of podcasts, but this is one example of how the tech giant is moving forward with this new product. It might just entice more users to try checking out podcasts through the app, and it will cement its popularity among Android users at the very least.
