Did you know that Google Search on Android is a podcast player?

Published

on

Whether you’re listening to the newest installment of a daily podcast you’re subscribed to or binging the latest true crime series, being able to pause a podcast on one device and pick it back up on another is a useful feature. And according to Pacific Content, it’s a feature that Google offers right now. If you start an episode on your Android phone, for example, you can finish it with your Google Home, and Zack Reneau-Wedeen, Google’s podcasts product manager, says this “device interoperability” will eventually expand to everything on which you use Google. We asked Google about the feature and were told that it’s “not new” but it’s unclear how long the ability has been around.

Though Apple launched its podcast app in 2012, Google still doesn’t have a dedicated app for podcasts. As of now, your only options are to find podcasts through Google Play Music, Google Search on Android, Google Assistant or a third-party app like Stitcher or Pocket Casts. When searching for podcasts through Google Search for Android, you do have the option to add a shortcut of that to your home screen, which essentially functions as an app, giving you access to your podcast subscriptions and sections like Top Podcasts, Trending Podcasts and popular options in specific categories.

Though he didn’t say that Google was working on a standalone podcast app, Reneau-Wedeen did say that a way to get to Google’s podcast feature through something like the Play Store, for example, would be a logical step.

Last year, Google bought 60dB, a short-form audio startup that offered personalization for each listener and it led some to wonder what the company’s plans were regarding its podcast efforts. Pacific Content will be reporting on some features of Google’s podcast strategy throughout the week.

Tech giant Huawei‘s massive new campus, which is designed to look like a group of European cities, has left people in awe.

The campus in the Chinese city of Dongguan recreates a wide swathe of Europe, from faux Italian towers to artificial lakes and classical palaces. It also has its own tram system.

The campus is split into 12 “towns,” which are areas where employees work. Each town is named after a European city. There are towns including Paris, Granada, Verona, and Bruges.

The campus is still being built. So far 8 out of the 12 towns have been completed.

The nine square kilometer facility can house up to 25,000 employees. 17,000 employees are currently located on the campus. There are over 50,000 employees at Huawei’s Shenzhen headquarters.

Huawei’s Dongguan campus is so big that a tram operates to transport employees between different towns. There’s also a bridge that connects the different parts of the campus on different sides of the lake. The bridge is a replica of the Freedom Bridge in Budapest, Hungary, CNBC reports.
