As I woke up this morning, I received an e-mail to say that Pocket Casts has now become a free app and as I have supported them throughout the years they will be giving me 3-years of their new premium subscription service.
The new premium service gives me access to Desktop applications (which I have used in the past as it is sometimes more convenient just to use my laptop to listen). The ability to upload 10GB worth of storage in case I want to upload my own audio. I am unsure if I can share this with other Pocket Casts users at this time but this is a feature I will not use. I was also given a couple of exclusive app and icon themes (I like the Extra Dark theme that compliments the new Android 10 dark mode and easier on the battery life thanks to the Pixel 3a OLED panel.
Really grateful that Pocket Casts have given this to me for 3-years as I look back on my podcasting journey this has been the one constant. I have tried multiple Podcasting apps including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Overcast and Spotify but I keep coming back to Pocket Casts time and time again.
