Official Acast UWP app is now available on the Windows Store

Acast now has an official Universal app for Windows 10, which can be downloaded from the Store. For those unfamiliar with the brand, it's an online platform that enables you to keep track of and enjoy your favorite podcasts and audio shows. Whether you're into sports, news, comedy, business, education or even culture, there's something in the catalogue for everyone.

There's even a curated Discovery page for when you desire something a little different. The Acast content teams will continuously populate feeds with fresh podcasts to try out and explore. It's a neat service and one we're pleased has arrived on Windows as a Universal app for all device owners to enjoy.

Acast

You can download the app from the Windows Store today. Do note that paid content isn't currently supported on Microsoft's platform just yet. You'll still be able to enjoy free shows until the team add support for Acast+.

  • Not heard of this before but going to download now and take a look - App looks nicely done
  • Same, never heard of it. Downloaded and using now. Seems like a great app!
  • If only there was a way to import my OPML file from Grover Pro...
  • This does the same job as Grover Pro? Does it have some advantage?
  • I'd just like to try it out and see but don't really want to search for all the podcasts I follow...
  • Is this a new app or was it available on wp8/8.1 and is it native or an ios port?
  • The app is brand new and custom made for UWP. This is the first release and unfortunately not available for wp8/8.1.
  • Can't open :(
  • Is SD card supported for download of podcasts?
  • Gonna give it a try, especially if it syncs podcasts to my Android
  • Can I pause on my phone and resume at the exact same place on my PC? Do I have to login with Facebook?
  • Looks nice, but I've searched for 4 of the podcasts I listen to and it couldn't find 3 of them.  Serial was the one it found, which I would hope that would be on any podcast service.  Windows Central is not there, but Android Central is.
  • Love Pocket Casts, but it needs a little love on the W10M front. I'm pretty sure it would find your podcasts.
  • I found all the NPR podcast that I listen to. The app UI is nice but it crashes too often.
  • Sadly, can't find One cast or Windows Central podcast there. Otherwise seems like a worthy option for podcasts.
  • Beautifully designed app respect to the designer :)
  • It couldn't find The Smoking Tire. I guess I'll continue to use Casts on my phone, though I normally use my Zune for podcasts.
  • Tried the app... Works well, liked the "pin to start" and the offline options but it crashes a lot. Needs more tlc
  • Just downloaded, will be giving it a go...
  • It didn't find any of the five podcasts I listen to (not even the WC podcast...) But yeah, the design is really nice :D
  • Cast is still my go to, but this seems to be very good as well.
  • Nice. Downloading!
  • Maybe you guys do this without saying but if you're announcing a UWP on the site a big piece to even just promoting is whether the app really is UWP and usable. It's not worth labeling UWP just because its downloadable. Half the store reviews say it's unusable and I agree on my 950 standard build.
  • Won't there be acast app for WP8.1?
    Desperately want it... How can I get it?
