Following the US depreciation in April, Google Podcasts is shutting down for international users this June.

According to the updated support article, Google Podcasts will be available for “users outside of the United States” until “mid-to-late June 2024.” The YouTube Music migration and OPML file export will be available until July 29, 2024 for a month-long grace period.

Yet another dumb move by Google.

Been looking for a solution. YT music is an awful replacement so your suggestion is very timely for me, thanks!

I prefer Podverse, you can pay $18 per year (after a 3 month trial) to have multiple devices sync through a hosted account or just use the clients independently or host your own host your own instance.

The only thing it's missing for me is an easy way to get to the source url or download the media to your device.

Overall I'm happy to pay them $1.50 a month for them to keep it actively developed.

I tried migrating to YT Music but they don't even have the same podcasts available!

They don't even have the same features. No notifications for new episodes, for example. I switched to AntenaPod too.

I noticed this as well. I'm not sure why the migration wasn't a smooth process. Maybe the IP holders aren't watching their emails?
