New York (The Verge) — Google now lists playable podcasts in search results theverge.com/2019/5/10/1856….
Google’s new podcast-focussed search results have arrived. Searching for a podcast now shows you its three most recent episodes, and you can select one of them to be taken to Google’s web player.
Searching for a podcast now shows you its three most recent episodes which can played directly in Google’s web player on podcasts.google.com. The functionality works across both desktop and mobile. It’s especially useful on iOS where a dedicated Google Podcasts app is yet to be released, as 9to5Google notes.
The web player, which was first spotted back in March, has a similar set of playback controls to the dedicated Google Podcasts app that launched on Android last year. — Jon Porter/@verge
