Google Search will soon start listing down individual podcast episodes

The new Google Podcast search is a game-changer and makes the life task easier.

In effect, rather than searching for "Samsung Galaxy Podcast" a search for "Samsung Galaxy" should return podcast episodes too. Complaints were raised as users struggled to find updated content in Google News and other search results.

The same feature will be making its way to Google Podcasts on the web and Google Assistant. That is clearly not the case anymore.

Google is jumping deeper into this audio movement, too, with this new Search functionality. "This means you'll be able to discover podcasts that may be exclusively available by purchase or subscription", Zack Reneau-Wedeen, Product Manager, Google Podcasts said on Thursday.

It is expected that Podcasts will come to Google Assistant and Google Podcasts within this year itself!

Forum discussion at Twitter and WebmasterWorld. They're also based on the topics or subject matter Google detects in the content rather than just on titles.

When you type search queries like "podcast about self-care" or "Pasta recipes podcast", you'll see a whole carousel of podcast results which will be found together with the web pages, news, images, etc. Underneath that, a blue-colored "play" button will start the podcast playing directly in search results.

"As part of our work to help podcasters build audiences and grow their businesses, we'll soon add the ability for publishers to specify where you can listen to their podcasts, such as other apps or websites".

Google will also support third-party playback as certain podcasts are exclusive to certain platforms. One popular source of information and entertainment now are podcasts. You also have the benefit of getting your listening progress synchronized everywhere you go. Only those users who in the United States who are searching in English can access the feature, for the time being, and there's no estimate provided for other languages or regions.
