First off, what is Google Podcasts?
Google Podcasts is a brand new player built into Android devices, with no download necessary. It makes listening to podcasts a lot easier on Android (75% of the world's smartphone users).
It is NOT a part of Google Play Music. Unlike Google Play Music, which is limited to the US and Canada, Google Podcasts is available worldwide. That's why we recommend that you share Google Podcasts links rather than Google Play links to reach a wider audience.
Great, so how do I share my show on Google Podcasts?
It's already there! All podcasts hosted with Acast Open can be found through Google search, so your podcast is all set for listening. 😎
Acast Open has integrated Google keywords and searching for all of our podcasts since day one.
Note: Your podcast will be automatically added to Google—and will appear at the address provided automatically on your Acast Open website. However, Google takes a little while to index brand new shows (or shows that have recently moved) usually a few weeks after being on iTunes. So, if you get a message saying "404" or "this feed hasn't been indexed" it is just a delay in Google's initially indexing your show.
