YouTube Music on Galaxy phones now Plays Podcasts in the US
In February, Google announced that podcasts would soon be distributed via YouTube Music. This would enable consumers to listen to the same podcasts they view on YouTube even while their device is locked. This capability is now available in the United States. Within the United States, Google gradually includes podcast functionality within the YouTube Music app for Android devices.
Your Galaxy smartphone or tablet, along with any other Android device, will soon have a “Podcasts” link that can be found at the very top of the Home page of the new YouTube Music app. This section contains a list of all podcasts available on the platform. The program classifies podcasts and makes recommendations for them based on popularity, genre, and interest.
