podcast is coming to google play music

Google has announced that it will soon offer support for podcasts on Google Play Music, giving podcasters access to millions of new audiences on Android phones and tablets.

Android users will not only be able to search for your favorite podcast, but also have one selected for you based on what you’re doing, your mood, and your interests, like how it’s done with music.

“Along with direct searches and browsing for podcasts, the service will connect new listeners with podcasts based on what they’re doing, how they’re feeling or what they’re interested in. Similar to our contextual playlists for music, this will give podcast fans and new listeners a way of finding and listening to content that’s unique to Google Play Music,” said Elias Roman, product manager for Google Play Music.

There is no word about when the podcasts will become available on Google Play Music yet. For now, it’s trying to add as many podcasters as possible before the launch happens. If you are a podcaster (for now US only), you can start uploading your shows here.

Some of the podcasters networks that are already uploading their shows to Google Play Music include:

  • 5by5
  • Dan Carlin
  • Dave Ramsey
