Pocket Casts web player lets you enjoy podcasts in your browser



The best podcast client on mobile is now available in your browser. Shifty Jelly has today made its Pocket Casts web player available for limited beta testing, and it delivers all of the awesome features you’ve long been enjoying on Android and iOS.

If you spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer like I do, using a desktop podcast client can have its advantages.

Not only does it mean you’re not draining the battery on your smartphone or tablet while you’re working, but you don’t have you take your eyes off the screen and get distracted by other things when you want to fast forward through some ads or switch shows. You can also play your content through much louder speakers if you wish to.

These are just a few of the reasons why you might love the new Pocket Casts web player beta. Another one is support for Pocket Casts sync, so you can sign in with your existing account and get instant access to all your favorite shows — and sync your progress so that you can continue listening from where you left off on all of your devices.

Not everyone gets access to Pocket Casts on the web just yet, though. It’s a limited beta, so you’ll need to request access if you want to try it out. You can do that via the source link below.
