The best free Android podcast apps in 2019

Is there a free app on Android that can download and play podcasts?


For years, Apple has had a myriad of podcast players, but there haven’t been many good options on Android. But now, in 2019, there are a number of Android podcast player apps that we recommend:

  • Google Podcasts – Google released its own native podcast app in 2018. There aren’t a lot of bells and whistles, but it’s a good basic player.
  • Breaker – this is an awesome podcast player that has a lot of social options. They also allow you to adjust the playback speed, and will automatically remove silences.
  • Castbox – another good free option. This is the most popular app amongst my friends who use Android.
