Playable podcasts to now appear in Google search results

IANS  |  San Francisco 

After making the functionality to earlier, has now rolled out its results for desktop browsers that would list playable podcasts for users to choose from.

Announced at Google's I/O conference earlier this week, the feature would show users three most recent episodes that could be played directly in Google's on podcasts.co, The Verge reported on Friday.

The web player, which was first spotted back in March, has a similar set of playback controls to the dedicated Podcasts app that launched on in 2018.

"You can skip forwards and backwards, control playback speed, and if you're signed in with a Google Account then it should sync your playback across multiple devices," the report said.

However, the interface only lets user browse episodes from a single at a time, atleast as of now.

Earlier in April, Apple also updated the for Podcasts to allow it to play episodes directly on web, the report added.
