Podcasts removed from music app

I just upgraded to the XZ from my old Z and noticed that I no longer have a podcasts option in the music menu. I used to always download podcasts direct to my phone using the inbuilt podcast app. Has it been removed as I can't find it anywhere, I hope it's not yet another feature removed from the music app.

Re: Podcasts removed from music app

Thanks for the reply, I'm disappointed they've removed the podcast app, it seems that the Xperia music app is constantly in decline with Sony removing features willy nilly.
I will check out the alternatives you suggested, thank you.

Hi @Flender, I'm glad to hear that you've upgraded to the Xperia XZ! Slightly smiling Face

 

As @nolramlb already pointed out, the Podcast feature in the Music app has unfortunately been removed in the Xperia X series. I will forward your thoughts on this as user feedback though so thank you for sharing them here. Slightly smiling Face

Re: Podcasts removed from music app

Just upgraded from Z3C to X Compact and I'm as well disappointed by the lack of podcasts feature in Music app.

 

It was great not having to download another app just for podcasts.

 

Hope it'll come back in the future.

Podcasts removed from music app

Why is everything getting worse, and not better. Why has the ability to search for and play podcasts been removed getting the android app. When will you be adding it back in?

On my Xperia x Compact the same Bug. Hope they fix it soon, the music App is worthless for me without podcast support.
