Cross device synchronization
Would be great to be able to synchronize subscriptions, playlist, read status, ... between devices
Just a heads up regarding the latest version of the app. It doesn’t provide cross device syncing yet, but it allows you to sign in to your Google Drive account and have all your data automatically backed up to make sure they are safe at all time. It also makes restoring the data on a new device really easy.
You can go into Settings/Backup to enable this and sign-in
Given the number of votes and comments spanning several years, I'm really surprised the developers have not found a way to do this. I've only just switched to PA but like others, without the functionality of being able to login via multiple devices, I may need to continue shopping around for an app that can do this. I needed an app that had the ability to bookmark but I also listen on different devices and simply do not have the time or energy to unsubscribe to My podcasts and Rick off the hundreds of episodes I have listened to.

So at the moment ---> New device means new subscriber & start from scratch ?? You gotta be kidding

Would be nice when Podcast Addict could sync and play podcast on Garmin watches.

Hi, If the servers are problem, have you considered the possibility to provide VM/docker or anything to allow self-hosting the server part?
Fabian Kraus commented
what about gpodder support?
Louis Hébert commented
Any word on this @admin ? It's been years and I've recently decided to jump ship from using Podcast Addict and pocket casts to using your service exclusively. One of the major things that kept me from doing it earlier was that I liked the cross platform idea. Any update/feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Yaniv Saharoni commented
would love it.
I think you can now synchronize with Google drive without having to pay anymore. It's like a hidden storage like what's app is using or so.
I also really need this feature please
Stephan Vierkant commented
I really would like to see this feature, but it's really broad now. Does this include LAN sync or cloud sync? Subscription or downloaded episodes as well? Does it sync progress?
My suggestion is to split up this feature request to see what users really want.
Ro Sands commented
I would love to see this feature. Please add this. Thanks

I agree, this would be a great feature. I would pay for the option to use it.
So I have to say that this idea is second on the list of top ideas, it has nearly 5,000 votes, and there have been comments constantly on it since the start of it until current day. However, I find it funny that the developer is spending so much focus on things with Android Auto (which as a note was suggested in April 2015 and completed 7 months later) but yet this idea has been requested since June 2013 and it says it is started, but 6 years later and we are still waiting. C'mon developer, please give us an update on where you are with this feature. I am sure I speak for us all when I say that it feels like you have forgotten about us and this request or that you just don't care about it.
Please add this feature

It will be great if this feature appears in app!
Stephan Vierkant commented
Yeah, please give us an update on this! The most popular feature request is about a desktop application with synchronization (https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/6531942-having-a-computer-based-version-of-podcast-addict) and there are some services (like gpodder: https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/4351924-add-support-for-https-gpodder-net) that can deliver this feature. So I think there can be some sort of discussion about the best way to achieve synchronization.
So any update at all for sync across devices?
Barry Furnival commented
Wow! The started comment is almost 4 years old. Can we get a status on this "Started" suggestion? I have 3 devices that I listen and watch podcasts on. I left PA for Pocketcast because PA didn't have this feature. I always liked the GUI on PA better than Pocketcast. Now with the release of the, even more, dorked-up Pocketcast v7, I'm back, but still would like the ability to sync across devices.
Jumping from pocketcasts back to PA. need sync please.
