The drop down player should be fully customizable. I don't know if it's you or my phone but I would like to be able to put the controls where I want. Especially since it seems to change every few months, I get used to where a button is and then it moves or dissappears1 vote
Are you refering to the player notification? If so pelase read the last changelog. Apps have to follow Google latest specs and restrictions
Allow subscribers of services like Amazon Prime to subscribe to add-free podcast using their account.
Some services like Amazon Prime now offer add-free podcast to subscribers. It would be great if it was possible to use podcast addict (PA) to subscribe to those podcast. The idea would be to safely enter your credential for a specific service in PA and then being able to search/subscribe to podcasts available from that service using PA with all the wonderful features it offers, instead of having to use multiple applications.3 votes
A podcast is a RSS feed. Unless Amazon starts providing private feeds for their subscribers this content will not be available in podcast apps
I do not want to add Podcast Addict to the Optimized Apps list - the app works perfectly well for me without this and I understand the limitations on things like background updates, which I don't need. Unfortunately, I am now constantly spammed with the red "Thanks to Google latest restrictions..." alert when I use Podcast Addict. This is really annoying.
Please add the option to acknowledge and suppress this warning.1 vote
This banenr is displayed because the device is blocking app services and preventing it from working a it should. You have the name of the last service blocked in the past 24 hours in the message.
You just have to follow the FAQs instructions to fix this. Now any app relying on background services has to be excluded from the device optimized apps list..
A handy Button to shuffle the order of the playlist randomly1 vote
You can already do this by using the shuffle butotn on the player screen. You can add this button in Settings/Player/Controls
Is there any way I can easily go back to a Podcast I was just listening to? Or see my history? If you accidentally push a button and lose a podcast halfway through an episode you can't go back or see which one it is! My playback in progress list is incomplete. This is the worst and most frustrating part of PA besides not knowing where a track in the Recycle Bin came from if you cant see the art.1 vote
You can Access the current podcast by pressing on the player banner displayed at the bottom of every screen. Then from the player screen you can swipe to see the playlist or press on the artwork to open the episode and access the remaining list of episodes of this podcast.
You can also use the navigation sidebar to open the 'Playback in progress' screen which shows the list of every episode you started listening to but didn't finished. Completed episodes can be seen from the playback History screen.
The recycle bin only contains episodes deleted automatically based on your automatic cleanup settings. They remain there for the duration you selected in the app settings. Please send me an email if you have any questions (Settings/Feedback)
I have some virtual podcasts, which are audiobooks, mixed with actual podcasts. Actual podcasts I have sorted using publication date. Virtual podcasts I want sorted by name, because publication date doesn't make sense. Would be great if my sorting choice is remembered for each specific feed3 votes
You can already do this by going into Settings/Display/Podcasts and enabling Custom Sorting. After that each screen will have its own sorting mode
Ich hätte gerne einen Verlauf, in dem ich nachschauen kann, was ich gehört habe. Ich brauche das um Quellen wieder zu finden.3 votes
You can go to Settings/Navigation sidebar and enable playback history to do this
Currently, the status bar icon of Podcast Addict is the logo. However, status bar icons are so small, that it hardly looks like anything but a random spot/dot.
I think it would be far more useful to change that icon into a "Play" (triangle) icon when podcast is being played, and to "Payse" ( II ) icon when playback is paused.
The icon would become functional and informative.1 vote
I'm sorry but Google asks developers to show the app logo on the player notification
I am re-posting this suggestion, since the original request was denied based on false information.
"I love how customizable the notification settings are... but can you add the ability to hide the icon from the notification bar, while still listing the player when I swipe down? The player is always there, so no need to show an icon all the time. I have a samsung s21 with android 11. I don't think my previous phone did this. So to be clear, when I'm looking at my home screen, I don't want to see the podcast addict icon in the top left corner... but when I swipe down, I want the player to be there. I know how to turn off both, but not how to turn off the icon. Hopefully Android supports this."
It is possible. I have been running BeyondPod 3.3.68 since over a decade (currently on Android 11, but the same applies to Android 13) and the icon in status bar is never present.
Please, add the function to remove this pointless and annoying icon.

Android doesn't allow to post notifications without any icon. I'm sorry to hear that you don't accept this answer but again, this is how android works, and every new version of android adds even more constraint and forces older app to remove features...
In each podcast, there is the drop down menu option to filter so I only see All, Recent (7 days), Downloaded, Favorite, etc. The default filter is All. The issue is that when I exit the podcast page or exit the app, the filter changes back to All if I had changed it to anything else. It would be good to be able to save the filter on a per podcast basis. So e.g. if I set the filter to Downloaded, when I exit the app or podcast page and later re-enter the podcast page the filter remains set to Downloaded instead of reverting back to All. This would only apply to that individual podcast and each podcast would have similar custom behavior.

You can already set the app so that each podcast will use its own filter. To do this, go to Settings/Display/Podcxast and set default filter to 'Last filter (per podcast)'
I am happy with adverts in podcasts, it's how they pay their rent, but programmatic ads are lazy and obnoxious for me. Sometimes the volume level is completely different and it can ruin a nice peaceful show. Please can we have a clear indicator of which podcasts use this, and a filter for when we are searching for new podcasts? Maybe even a notification if already subscribed podcasts suddenly start using them?
Many thanks!1 vote
Sorry but it is impossible to know which podcast is usgin dynamic ad insertion. Sorry but this feature cannot be implemented
On the Recent Episode tab, would be great to have new episodes be highlighted or visually distinguished, just temporarily until you leave Recent Episodes.
When subscribed to many podcasts, a refesh could pull in dozens of episodes and it's unclear which ones I have/haven't looked at already.1 vote
There's a dedicated screen with the list of new episodes. You can access it by pressing on the NEW episodes notification
There should be a version of the home screen widget with rewind (10 sec) and fast forward (10 sec) instead of skip podcast3 votes
Please send me an email with a screenshot of what you call 'home screen widget' so I can understand what you're refering to and then help you (Settings/Feedback)
Is there a way you can please allow separating science fiction and horror? They're not the same thing necessarily. Thank you!1 vote
Podcasters follow the standard categories and select the ones matching best their content. Then podcast apps allow you to select filter by categories. However unless new official categories are created and podcsters start to use them we are limited to the current categories
the current options for alarm are: podcast, ringtone, radio, or NULL. could we add the ability to start a playlist (or to resume playback of a current one?)?
i like to use the timer function to listen as i fall asleep, then id like to be woken up to the next podcast in that playlist queue. can this be done easily?
please and thanks devs!1 vote
Options are to listen to a specific radio, specific podcast, to resume playing the current episode or to start playing the category of your choice. Both the last options means playlist. Please send. Me an email if you have any questions (Settings/feedback)
In the Android system, when a user long-presses on a text area, the pop-up menu usually displays registered translation or dictionary apps to translate or look up the selected word. However, in the episode description text area of Podcast Addict, this option is not available in the pop-up menu that appears when long-pressed. Can this option be added?3 votes
You can already long press on the episode description text and you will have access to the standard Android text selection menu
To save energy, it would be useful if the timer could stop the app, not just the player. This would allow the phone to consume less power overnight.1 vote
I'm sorry but I don't understand what you mean here. The sleep timer stops the player, so after that there's nothing more running and he app won't be using any battery. There's nothing more to stop here
Xavier, I understand the need to keep episode names due to the vagaries of podcast hosting servers, but I would like to at least SEE the original filename from within the app. It doesn't have to be in the player, just somewhere in the episode information. Is that possible?1 vote
You can customize the name of downloaded episodes fom Settings/Download/Custom filename
Add this option at the episode list of a podcast to search the episodes that i did not listen, to choose what will be the next one3 votes
You can press on the toolbar 'eye' button to hide played content
It would be nice if you could filter the custom playlist based on the category. Just filtering by downloaded, played etc isn't enough, it would be nice to be able to filter by the custom categories you set yourself. Then you could keep everything in your playlist and filter it based on the categories you set yourself, sounds amazing!1 vote
The purpose of the custom playlist is to select which category you want to listen to, so I don't understand your question. You can use the screen drop down menu to select the category you want to. Feel free to send me an email with more details so I can help (Settings/Feedback)
