Fastest refresh thanks to heavy lifting servers.

Pocket Casts utilizes a global network of servers designed to do the heavy lifting so your phone doesn't have to. Our servers check for new episodes and deliver the updates instantly to your device. Your phone doesn't need to check each of your subscriptions individually since our server did it hours earlier. This results in a much faster refresh and considerably less bandwidth use than other podcast apps.

Sync between iOS and Android.

Your subscriptions, podcasts, playlists & progress can be synced with your other devices. Pocket Casts runs on iPhone, iPad and Android; sync is supported everywhere.

If you ever have to upgrade or replace your phone, download Pocket Casts, log in and continue right where you left off.

Auto-Download episodes as they are released.

A podcast publishes a new episode. Your device downloads it in the background. When you look, it's ready to go. Welcome to the future.

Powerful Filters keep episodes organised.

You can create episode filters to match whichever criteria you'd like. Want a list of every downloaded but unplayed episode? How about a list of video episodes that you haven’t downloaded yet? Easy with these filters.

Unique features on both platforms.

iOS and Android are very different platforms, each with their own styles, conventions and functionality. That's why Pocket Casts excels at being natively amazing on both.


  • Modern Ui
    This is the simplest and most powerful Pocket Casts interface to date. It adapts to podcast artwork by changing colors to complement. Thoughtful gesture support adds a delightful touch to Pocket Casts' powerful feature set.

  • Background downloads & more
    Pocket Casts supports the latest iOS APIs for background downloads, periodic updates and audio queue playback.

  • Airplay & Control Center
    Airplay audio or video to supported devices. Full Control Center support during playback. This is what being native is all about.


  • Holo Design, light & dark
    We've kept a close eye on the Android design guidelines while building a simple and powerful interface. The ethos behind Android's design is 'Simple, powerful, beautiful'.

  • Widget & Notification Centre Controls
    Because a great Android app should be controllable from anywhere and visible in the places you need it most.

  • Native variable speed playback
    Other apps make you pay for additional downloads to get your variable speed fix on Android. Not Pocket Casts. All the way from 0.5x to 3.0x, no plugins to download, no fuss, just pure unadulterated speed.
