The California based Tech giant, Google, has rolled out a new podcast player for Android users. The new introduction allows users to listen and subscribe to podcasts directly from Google Search, without the need for any app installation. According to the Podcast production company, Pacific Content, Google is showing information about podcast shows and episodes listings in search results on Android devices.

The new feature is available on Google search and assistant that will help to sync podcast subscriptions across various devices. Meanwhile, to find the desired podcast, users just need to open up Google Search or Google Assistant and then type in the name of the podcast they are looking for.
