YouTube Music Officially Launches Podcasts in the US
The YouTube Music κυκλοφόρησε επίσημα μια λειτουργία podcast για ακροατές στις Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες, προσφέροντας έναν νέο τρόπο στους χρήστες να έχουν πρόσβαση στις αγαπημένες τους εκπομπές και να ανακαλύπτουν νέες. Η λειτουργία κυκλοφορεί στην εφαρμογή YouTube Music, τόσο σε iOS όσο και σε Android, and allows users to access a variety of podcasts across a range of genres. The announcement was made today through a YouTube Community post, making the feature official since it was reported to be in beta in February and announced to media later that month.
To access podcasts on YouTube Music, users simply search for their favorite shows or browse by category. New podcast recommendations and unfinished episodes will be accessible on the Home tab, which you can filter by tapping “Podcast” at the top of the home screen. The platform offers a range of categories including: business, comedy, gaming, health and fitness, music, society and culture and true crime. Users can also discover new shows through personalized recommendations based on their listening history and preferences.
The podcast listening experience differs from the YouTube Music listening experience in that you do not need a Premium or Music Premium subscription to access some of the features. For those who are Premium subscribers, please note that the ad-free experience does not extend to host read approvals or sponsored messages on podcasts.
Podcasts on YouTube Music are currently only available in the United States. However, this may change in the future, according to the announcement. The feature is also rolling out gradually, so you might not see it in the YouTube Music app right away.
