Google to axe Google Podcast app next year in favour of YouTube Music




Google announced on Tuesday it will be scrapping its Google Podcast app — which has been downloaded more than 500 million times — from 2024.

As part of the controversial move, listeners will be encouraged to migrate to the YouTube Music app to listen to their podcasts— but not everyone is happy about the all-in-one listening product.

Killing off Google Podcasts, after discontinuing Google Music Play in 2020, will enable the tech giant to move all of its audio offerings into one product.

“We’ll be increasing our investment in the podcast experience on YouTube Music — making it a better overall destination for fans and podcasters alike,” YouTube said on Tuesday.
