GOOGLE  REPORTEDLY SET TO LAUNCH GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC POSCAST NEXT WEEK

It would be recalled that in a post few months ago, Google declared it would be jumping back into the podcast arena with “Google Play Music Podcasts.”

In the light of this, Google launched a site to take RSS submissions from content creators and promised the product would be launching “soon.” It seems the product is now available to some users.

It was gathered that Google has yet to make an announcement but Android Police has screenshots of the Android component, which lives inside the Google Play Music app.

If you have Play Music version 6.3 and (critically) have the server-side switch for podcasts turned on, you’ll see a new section in the navigation drawer called “podcasts.”

The section contains a searchable podcast catalog, which allows you to subscribe and auto-download shows. The Now Playing screen has been tweaked with 30-second skip and rewind buttons, and the app will alert you when new shows arrive and start downloading.

For now, the podcast section appears to be a good-looking plain bones, feature-wise. There’s no variable playback speed, no importing of existing RSS lists, and search isn’t limited to just podcasts.

Reportedly, the podcast icon would be lunched very soon, most likely, next week.
