Google Play Music is one of the most popular apps for listening to music and radio. Even though a lot of people use it to just hear songs that are on their devices, the Play Music app gives you access to various radio stations so that you can listen to songs of your choices. You can even upload 50,000 songs of your own and then listen to them on all your devices free of charge.
You can even get a subscription to the music streaming service offered by Google Play Music, and you get access to millions of songs on demand! You also get a YouTube Red membership and you can download music offline too. One thing that was missing from the app was podcasts, which is a much-requested feature in the app. Google had announced last year that the app would get podcasts soon, but the wait turned out to be very long.
Nevertheless, Google has officially announced today that podcasts are now available in the Google Play Music app for Android as well as on the web version. There’s a catch though; the podcast service is available only in Canada and the US right now, so other regions will have to wait for some more time. The podcasts in Google Play Music are organized in a different way, as it gives you suggestions for new subscriptions rather than showing contextual playlists. You can choose from top charts and can even search for specific podcasts. You can even be a publisher right now.
Of course, the podcasts are not visible in the app right now, and it might take some days before all the accounts get it. It is possible that an update is required, so we suggest you to download Google Play Music APK from APKMirror.com. It comes with a new icon and stands at version 6.7.271. The APK file is 18.95 MB in size and is compatible with devices running Android 4.1 and above. Download it and see if podcasts are available on your device now.
