First off, what is Google Podcasts?
Google Podcasts is Google's 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, however 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?
In the past, the coveted spots within Google Podcast's library required patience, some good SEO, and indexing from Apple's library of podcasts.
Google has recently made it possible for podcasters to submit their shows directly to Google to be added to their library! 👏
To make sure your show gets in there, just submit it here.
Acast Open has integrated Google keywords and searching for all of our podcasts since day one.
