Podcasts are now available on YouTube Music in the United States on Android, iOS, and the web.
The launch comes just a few months after YouTube podcasting head Kai Chuk announced that podcasts would be added to YouTube Music in the near future.
Users who are listening to podcasts on the main app can now listen to them on YouTube Music.
According to the firm, all users may listen to podcasts on-demand, offline, in the background, and while casting, and they can switch effortlessly between audio-video versions on YouTube Music.
“This podcast listening experience is different from our music listening experience where you need a Premium or Music Premium subscription to enjoy some of these features,” the company wrote in a blog post.
Podcasts will be available on YouTube Music regardless of whether you have a YouTube Premium subscription.
YouTube is progressively rolling out the upgrade to all of its listeners in the United States, and it aims to add podcasts to YouTube Music to users outside the United States soon, although no particular launch dates have been provided.
