How to Listen to Podcasts on Android

Choose Your Platform

Download a Podcast App

First, we recommend downloading a podcast app. Open up the Google Play Store and search for a Podcast player app. Gimlet listeners love these apps on Android:

Search for a Podcast

If you already know the title of a podcast you want to hear, use the search button in the main menu of your app and type the name podcast in the box. Most apps will automatically show you the best result. Give it a try by searching for one of Gimlet's shows.

Browse the Catalogue

If you're not sure what you're looking for, all podcasting apps provide a place to browse the entire universe of podcasts. Most of them also give recommendations, show what's trending, and also let you look by whatever topic interests you. Take a look around and find something new.

Subscribe and Listen

When you find a show that you like, scroll through and pick an episode to listen to. If it's a show you really enjoy, all podcast apps either have a "subscribe" or "follow" feature. Use it to automatically receive new episodes of the show to your phone when they drop. This way you won't have to always search for the podcast to see if there's new content.
