If you’re an avid podcast listener, you can ask your Google Home to play an iTunes podcast. You can also say ‘podcast name’ to start listening to your podcast. If you prefer to listen to specific episodes, you can say ‘previous episode’ or ‘next episode’ to play the previous episode. Then you can continue listening to your podcast without having to leave the comfort of your home.
You can cast a podcast to Google Home from any other device. If you’re using an iPhone or Android device, you can start listening to a podcast on your phone and stop it later. To send a podcast to Google Home, simply use the Cast icon in the Apple or Android apps. You’ll be prompted to choose the speaker. To change the podcast, you need to repeat the process by saying ‘OK Google, play podcast’.
The good news is that Google recently launched its own podcast app in the Play Store, so you can listen to your favorite podcasts on Google Home. The app is not as polished as older podcast apps, but it will become more functional with updates. And you can expect it to support more podcasts than the iTunes podcast. Just remember, it’s not a substitute for an iTunes subscription. So how do you play an iTunes podcast on Google Home?
Fortunately, Google Home can also play audio files. You can link Apple Music to Google Home using the same method. If you’re listening to a podcast on your iPhone, you’ll be able to play it on Google Home without any hassle. And if you’re listening to a podcast on your phone, you can even control playback manually by tapping the media toggle on the Home app. It’s all in the details.
