Windows Phone has always had podcast support integrated into the OS. But now it’s getting decoupled from the core OS and will live on as a separate app. The benefit is that Microsoft can now create a richer podcast experience on Windows Phone without needing to update the operating system. All that’s needed now is an update to an app.
Let’s check out podcasts on Windows Phone 8.1.
This is a pretty basic podcast app compared to third-party apps available in the Windows Phone Store. That’s not a bad thing though, because you’re getting more features than before in Windows Phone 8. You can now vary the playback speed, scroll through a podcast episode with better control and more.
Power podcast listeners will probably stick to their favorite third-party app, but this new podcast app on Windows Phone 8.1 is a solid start for the average podcast fan.
