Pocket Casts for Android gets an upgrade, bringing Chromecast support and more

Shift Jelly have released an upgrade to Pocket Casts for Android, taking the latest version to v4.5. The update brings a number of new features and improvements.

Pocket Casts v4.5 adds Chromecast support, allowing users to “cast” their audio and video podcasts to a TV or HiFi with one click, similar to YouTube or Plex integration.

The app has undergone some aesthetic changes, with accompanying background colours to the podcast you’re listening to.

It’s also possible now to dynamically create playlists of what to play next, inserting a podcast into the middle of an existing list. Sync support has also been implemented, so registering an account will synchronize podcast subscriptions, playlists and metadata between Android and iOS.

Get it on Google Play
