Google Play Music Podcasts to go official on April 18

Google Play Music Podcasts

According to a new report by NPR, Google Play Music Podcasts will be officially revealed on the 18th of April, which is this coming Monday. The radio service sent an email to its members informing of their availability on Google Play Music Podcasts on the aforementioned date.

It must be noted that Google has been toying with the idea of building a podcasts player within Play Music for quite some time now, with original reports dating back to October 2015. However, this appears to be legitimate information, so we can expect Google to make an official announcement on Monday.

Android has always been found to be lacking a decent podcast app with stock Android users having to rely on third-party solutions. But with Google offering the service by default, that concern should be driven away from the minds of the users. Sure, it’s a bit too late in the piece, but it’s still progress. Are you excited by this news?
