I want to love this so bad - the interface is sleek and it's easy to search for new podcasts. You can download and play episodes without subscribing to a feed and it has the full episode descriptions in the app (something that's been hit or miss on other apps I've used). It's also been very reliable and bug-free on my Pixel. Unfortunately it has two huge failings for me - the biggest one is the lack of a way to make a playlist. You listen to one podcast at a time and that's it. There's no way to queue up more and since I usually listen to podcasts while driving there's no safe way to select a new one to play if my current one ends before my destination. This is such basic functionality in all the other apps I've used I don't understand why it's not here. The second issue is not a deal breaker for me but it also cannot be set to automatically download new episodes, so I have to hope I remember when I'm on a wifi connection to do so. Sadly going back to other apps for podcatching for now. I hope that it improves in the future as I like the look an feel enough to switch back if it ever gets the playlist function.

Pros: Super simple interface and easy access to what I want to listen to. Cons: Major problem!! All of my downloaded episodes have suddenly disappeared. Many of the downloaded podcasts I had can no longer be found on Google Podcasts, since the publishing station no longer has them available. I don't know if that's the reason the episodes disappeared, because the publishing station no longer has them available, but that should be the reason they are downloaded, is to prevent losing them.

Update: Apparently, Google Home is where your able to switch accounts for Google Podcasts. I'm keeping my rating since there should be a profile manager in app. --- I've used this app for awhile, and it has always been very good. All of the sudden, my sub list is gone. The only thing I can think of is the app changed my profile that I use. There is no button to change with gmail login I use, I would like that feature just like in Photos, Gmail and Maps.

I WANT TO GIVE 5 STARS. I truly enjoy this podcast app over what I was previously using, but there is CONSTANT CRASHING problems on Android devices. I have a Huawei P20, and it happens at random and can be VERY frustrating. When you reload the app, the timing will not be lined up with when it crashed, but way before that point. Sometimes it crashes just by clicking the screen off. Repeatedly. 2/5.

i have tried so many podcast apps and found them all to be not as easy to use as i thought they should be. i want to search, subscribe, and listen. the goal is the podcast, not mastering the app. the Google player just works, period. it's comfortable, your hands find what to press without thinking, just a good, stable, podcast player. love it...
