If you love listening to podcasts, then it’s highly likely you’ve heard of the powerful and popular app Pocket Casts.
On Wednesday, November 14, Pocket Casts announced several new features in its major 7.0 update, including Siri Shortcuts support, major changes to the UI, and even more cross-device syncing to make your life easier.
Shifty Jelly, creators of Pocket Casts, has put a large amount of work into the Discover tab, investing heavily in both algorithmic curation and dedicated human curators to make it more likely that you’ll be able to find something new and interesting to listen to in no time at all.
Once you’ve found something new to watch, you can listen to single episodes without needing to subscribe to that podcast — a helpful and very welcome addition to the app.
But it’s not all just about finding new episodes.
If you’re looking for a specific older episode of a prolific podcast, you no longer need to scroll through a long list.
