What’s next for Google’s Android podcast app?
The Android podcast is going away.
Google announced this morning that it is eliminating the app from the Play Store, and the Android Podcast app is gone from the Android store.
In a blog post today, Google says that the app will not be added to the Play store for at least two years.
It’s unclear if the app is going to be removed from the Google Play Store for two years, or if it will simply be removed on a temporary basis.
The blog post doesn’t mention the exact date, but the company says that it will “take action” when that time comes.
The Android Podcast is available in the Google App Store and Google Play for $1.99, or for $0.99 for a one-time payment.
Google says the app can be used with Android 4.4 and above.
