A dedicated app for podcasts may soon be available on the Google PlayStore.
According to the folks in 9to5Google, the search giant is planning to have its own Google Podcasts app.
In the last few months, Google has really been pushing for more presence in the podcast universe. And this move will definitely help them gain more traction. In 2009, it launched an app called Listen, which was its first attempt at a podcast player. However, it did not live long enough and was completely shutdown in three years later.
Currently, Google has been building out a podcast client within the standard Google app. However, it is not easy to access. The company is apparently trying to change that with an actual Android app.
9to5Google spotted a snipped of code in the latest Google app which shows an inactive prompt which asks users to “Get the Google Podcasts app.”
Currently the app is not live yet but the folks at 9to5Google thinks you will be able to access the app HERE once it does.
Besides the code, they also saw a logo for the Google Podcasts app made of the iconic Google colours.
Pretty cool eh?
