Don't download episodes over metered wifi
In Android 10 it is possible to add a wifi network as "metered". If the App can access this setting, it would be great to have an Option that causes PA to refrain from automatic downloads when on a metered network. This is a vital feature for users from Germany.
This will be included in the next version
In order to fully test this please join the Beta on the Play Store app page and then wait for the next beta (Build 20435). It has just been published so depending on the time it will take Google to process it it might be available in the next couple hours or days
In this version, you can go into Settings/Network and enable the setting that will handle the Metered WiFi connections as mobile connections.
Feel free to send me some feedback via email

+3 from me: I frequently use non-unlimited networks and it's not always convenient that the app downloads episodes while I'm connected to them.
This would be wonderful. My podcast device is connected to metered wifi all day and I don't want it to try downloading on it.
