After months of hard work, we are finally bringing you: 🎧 ZCast 3.0, or as we like to call it: "ZCast HD Audio" 🙉 This is by far the most requested feature enhancement from our loyal user base, and I'm super excited to finally share this version with everyone, after months of testing and experimenting with many formats and standards. This new ZCast version allows streaming in up to studio-quality of 48kHz/Stereo!!! Better than a Compact CD player that can only get to 44.1kHz... But we didn't stop there, the new version also introduces live MP3 streaming, from everywhere. This means that your amazing live HD audio broadcasting can be shared with your followers directly from your Twitter or FB stream, live! No need to install or launch any app, nor do they need to sign up to ZCast, just when they want to listen to your live stream. It will even work from a Twitter feed directly! These new features are adding on top of the other important features we released this year, with the BYOP (Bring Your Own Podcast) feature that allows you to upload your pre-recorded content, and of course the RSS feed that allows you to publish all your recordings on iTunes, GooglePlay, Stitcher or any other podcasting RSS index you wish. We are on a mission, to build the best professional podcasting platform out there, and this is just the beginning for us! Btw, having the original ZCast 1.0 make it into the prestige 1,000 Club here on Product Hunt, we are sure that this crazy new version will not disappoint on this front as well! And, the most amazing thing is that in this message, I get to thank our hunter and my co-founder in a single note: Thank you @hilzfuld for both hunting ZCast 3.0, and for helping me make the best podcasting platform out there, period! 🎤💧 Yes, this was an Emoji #MicDrop...

@mdavep Re. Android: Noted! Just a reminder can be brave and try the web-app version if your Android's Chrome browser is strong enough. Not as awesome as a native app, but better than nothing... :-)

@razyalov thanks - those new features are available from the mobile friendly webapp, too? I used to do a daily lunchtime zcast, but people complained about the sound quality (was using the webapp via chrome, which I think slowed things down). Wondering if I should start back up again now that HD audio is a thing.

@mdavep You should definitely give it a try. It should be better quality with the new version even on Android's Chrome. The main difference is the UI's usability on mobile Chrome, but the audio quality should be as good as on native iOS or a desktop.

@razyalov @joshua_yunger looks like we're back in business? #sockcast 2.0

No question that Podcasting is still in its infancy. Gary Vee is saying that listening to podcasts are slowly taking over listening to music and I for one agree. With each iteration ZCast keeps getting better! The future is very bright! Personally I'm looking forward to the updated android version.
