Hot on the heels of Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts offers up a public beta program.
Following the introduction of Google’s own podcast app, fan favorite Pocket Casts has opened up a public beta program. The podcast app took to Twitter inviting android users to join in a new public beta program.
If you don’t already know about Pocket Casts, it is my own personal favorite podcast app. The UI is simple and clean, and requires no struggling to navigate through your podcasts when you’re in the midst of doing something else. While being simple, the app is more feature rich than any other podcatchers I’ve used.
With the beta program, users will gain access to new features before they become available to the general public. Beta programs also carry a certain caveat that things can go wrong. Beta’s versions of apps are testing versions, and as such, can often break. If you’re a fan of podcasts that wants to see what’s new before others, this may be the program for you. On the other hand, if you’re someone that gets frustrated when things don’t work as they should, perhaps you should leave this to the more daring.
If you’d like to join the beta for Pocket Casts, click here. After clicking to join, soon you’ll find an update available for the beta version of the app waiting for you in the Google Play Store.
Android users 🤖: Our previously closed private beta is now open to all. If you’re up for the occasionally broken build and like to test new features, you can opt-in here: https://t.co/W53Nqexr5Q
