Google adds handy playable podcasts to search results

Google Podcasts comes to iOS and desktop

Google being Google, the company will try to push you towards its product when you search for a podcast title - behavior that led to the BBC removing its shows from Google Podcasts.

Android users had this functionality way back in 2016 before the official Google Podcasts app was even made. When you tap on the link to listen to one of them, you will see a list of available episodes. According to Google Podcasts Product Head Zack Reneau-Wedeen, the effort is a step toward making audio a “first-class citizen across Google”. But they eventually realized that those who are using their desktops also listen to podcasts while they're working or studying and may not have access to their phones.

Edwin Jackson set to play for record 14th team
Sanchez (3-3, 3.21) has tailed off following a good opening to 2019 and is trying to avoid losing a third consecutive start. Sanchez has not recorded a decision in either of his starts versus the White Sox.

It uses the same mechanics as the Android app that came out previous year, and syncs across multiple devices if you're signed in to your Google account.

You don't need to sign in to your Google account to start listening, but if you want to be able to continue where you left off across your other devices, you will need to sign in to the same account that you use on your other devices. That changed today as all the podcasts on Googles platform appear directly in the search results. Yes, but that was just based on the Podcast structured data elements, not based on how Google transcribes the audio within the actual podcast's content.
