Bring Back Podcasts

Podcasts came and it went.

 

I noticed Podcasts popped up within the Sony Music app in Version 9.0.4.A.0.0 and in other versions like on the Xperia C5 Ultra. However it dispeared on the Xperia XA Ultra...

 

There is a podcast content revival going on. Even Google Music added a Podcast section in their app.

However the Google Podcast does not allow RSS Feed URL add ons. For example I can't listen to the new Vogue Podcast.

Please keep the Podcast within Music across the board.

 

Sincerely,

Re: Bring Back Podcasts

Hi @pressefr,

As you pointed out, the Podcast feature in the Music app has been removed in the Xperia X series.

Thank you for your feedback though, I will forward it as user feedback. Slightly smiling Face

Re: Bring Back Podcasts

I found a Sony Podcast apk that works. It adds Podcast back into the Music app.

I find Sony's Podcast useful because it has the RSS add-podcast feature, as for the 'Google Music' app doesn't, i.e. to add the Vogue Podcast https://audioboom.com/channels/4429337.rss
