Add a way to easily switch between the "Playlist" and the "Home" screens
It will be very helpful to add the ability to easily switch between the playlist screen and the home screen of the app.
This can be done using a swipe or a button that is easily accessible - to perform the change using a single click.
While doing sport activity and while doing other daily actions, this is something that as a user I do most.
Now, in order to do that, I must switch to the playlist screen using the menu. It requires to open the menu, locate the "playlist" section in the menu, and press it. This requires user attention and hard to perform during another activity that the user may be doing, like a run.
Also access to the playback history using a single click would be useful.
You could shrink the podcasts icons section a bit and add another row with more action buttons or implement swipe left/right to switch between these useful screens.
In the future, you can also let the user configure what will happen when swiping right/left to allow more flexibility.
