Google’s Podcasting app – Google Podcasts – has finally added Chromecast support in a nod to users everywhere surprised it wasn’t built-in from day one.
Launched in June, the podcasting app has been widely lambasted as being rather basic in terms of function, especially against behemoths of the podcasting app world like PocketCasts. It is rather easy to use in its simplicity, but Chromecast support is very welcome.
It’s easy to use, once you update your Google Podcasts app on Google Play, with the Chromecast icon sitting up at the top right hand side of your screen. Once you’re casting a podcast the use is the same as every other app that incorporates Chromecast support with a notification you can access in the notification shade.
If you’re looking for the function, make sure your app is up to date on Google Play as it seems to be fairly widely available.
