Google announced that YouTube Music on web and iOS apps will now offer podcasts in the United States for now. Podcast users using the main YouTube app can now continue listening to the podcast on YouTube Music.
The podcasts on the app will be free and won’t require a premium subscription. The podcasts will be available on-demand, offline, and be able to be played in the background as well, and while casting.
According to Google, the podcast experience on YouTube Music is designed to complement the experience on the main app.
The podcasts will be available through the Home tab and by clicking on the podcasts section. The Explore feature will help users find popular podcasts on different categories.
