Chime in: What's the best Windows 10 podcast app?

Windows 10 has a plethora of podcast apps available on the Windows Store. Some are paid, others are free, and they all look different and offer different features. However, they all have one thing in common: they allow you to stream your favorite podcasts directly your devices. Whether that is a Windows phone, a laptop, PC or something else, there's a podcast app for everyone.

We want to know which podcast app you're using right now! A related forum thread is already packed with great responses.

Well I can't find the Podcast app Microsoft had built. They've given up on us! Podcast Lounge is giving me troubles too. Sometimes it just hangs after I press play, and the images to the podcasts wont load for some reason so I have to click each individual pod cast until I find the right one. Very annoying! Anyone have recommended podcast apps that regularly get updated?

I use the Microsoft-made Podcasts (opens in new tab) app on Windows 10 Mobile, because I like it. Many people hate Microsoft's version because it hasn't been updated in over two years, and it sometimes misses out on certain shows that some people may be interested in.

I use it because it's simple and fast. It has all the shows I need, including the ability to subscribe to shows and have them automatically download when a new episode is out. There are other, better third-party podcast apps on Windows 10 out there, but I like the simplicity of the Microsoft one.

What do you use? I hear Grover Pro (opens in new tab) is a great one, as well as Podcasts! (opens in new tab) on the Windows Store. Hit the link below and let us know in the forums which podcast app you use. You might just find a new favorite based other responses.
