J4G-PODCAST-PIC

The day has come that all Android podcast listeners, and creators have been waiting for. Google Play Music will finally list podcasts on the Google Play app!

As content creators this is a huge deal! The biggest goal of content creation is always to have people see or hear it. This move by Google gives us the chance to reach a larger audience for our content as well as allowing you, the listener easy access to your favourite shows.

The app will also use Googles Magic thingamums to curate new podcasts for you:

Along with direct searches and browsing for podcasts, the service will connect new listeners with podcasts based on what they’re doing, how they’re feeling, or what they’re interested in. Similar to our contextual playlists for music, this will give podcast fans and new listeners a way of finding and listening to content that’s unique to Google Play Music

Again this is great news for us as content creators. Here at Just Four Geeks we love making and listening to podcasts and have been hankering for Google to just this. Google is letting us upload our podcasts early so we are ready when they go live.

Look out for another post soon  about our Podcast restructuring here at Just Four Geeks to coincide with the Google Play Launch.
