Google Play Music is one of the most famous music players with over a billion downloads and performs the job of a Music player with ease and style.The company has finally announced the arrival of the much awaited Podcasts support to Google Play music in a blog post yesterday.The journey began from last October were Google started signing up many Podcasters for major shows such as Marc Maron’s WTF, Chris Hardwick’s The Nerdist, and Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk Radio and more.
The Google Play Music’s Podcasts section will provide contextual recommendations just like with the play music recommendations . The recommendations will be based on your activities and interests just like with the music.There will also be a few specific topics like Learn Something New which talks about stuff everyone should know and How to do everything and more.
The introduction of Podcasts support will really push the google play music more into the mobile app market as users currently relying on Pocket Casts and Podcast Addicts can possibly switch over as GPM will be offering much more than just Podcasts.As of now the support is just rolling out for the browser and android OS and not yet been added for users of Google Play Music on iOS , but its only a matter of time before we see it on iOS as well.
