Google Podcasts has arrived.
 
Last week the IAB shared some good news for the podcast industry: Revenues are up 86% from last year. BUT, podcasts are still tiny, representing less than 2% of radio ad spend in the U.S.
 
We’re hopeful Google’s investment into the ecosystem, introducing a pre-installed podcast player for Android folks, will expand the pie and ultimately help podcast creators find an audience.
 
The new Google Podcast app will be available worldwide in a few hours, with:
๐Ÿ™ Personalized recommendations for new podcasts
๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Progress and listen history synced through Google Assistant
๐Ÿ•“ Playback speed adjustments
