5 Best Podcast Apps For Note 9

One of the downsides to the Android software is that, unlike iOS, there just isn’t a great way to listen to your podcasts all in one place, at least not with a built-in apps. Apple’s own Podcasts app gives you access to tons of excellent content, and gives you a place to look at all of your subscriptions — Android just doesn’t have something like that. However, developers on Android have tried to create something close to that, and they’ve actually done a pretty good job.

Suffice to say, there are tons of different podcast apps to choose from. These apps provide you with a great infrastructure for finding podcasts to listen to, housing your podcast subscriptions, and a whole lot more. But, with so many available in the Google Play Store, what one do you choose? If you follow along below, we’ll show you five of the best options out on the market. Here are some of our top picks.

Google Podcasts

If you haven’t yet realized, Google has actually come out with their own Google Podcasts app. The search giant has seen just how much Apple’s Podcasts app is loved, and has heard the many requests for Google to provide something similar to Android users.

Download Google Podcasts to your Note 9, and you’ll instantly be able to search the world of podcasts.
