Podcasts in Google Play Music

Google has officially started rolling out podcasts as a new feature of Google Play Music. Launching today on both the web and in the Android app, you'll be able to discover, subscribe, and listen to your favorite podcasts right in the same place you already listen to music. Beyond searching for specific podcasts you already know, Google will also offer you new shows based on your activities, mood, and interests, much like it already does for music.

From Google:

Starting today on the web and rolling out on Android in the U.S. and Canada, we'll connect you with podcasts based on what you're doing, how you're feeling and what you're interested in. Similar to our contextual playlists for music, we want to make it easy to find the right podcast—whether you're a podcast aficionado or listening for the first time.

Podcast creators can easily get started with bringing their shows to Google Play through Google's podcast portal. You can, of course, subscribe to the Android Central Podcast in Google Play right here.
