Pocket Casts


Userlevel 3
As a future service, please add Pocket Casts for Android. It is already set up to throw podcasts to a Chromecast, and the added functionality of an alternative to Stitcher would be great.

Agree with kimgsriver64 Pocket Cast is great and now my Sonos system is complete for me. Had still been using old SqueezeBox units to listen to several podcasts

This is excellent news. For me, it fills in one major gap in the sources covered by the Sonos app. Just a bit surprised that I heard about it first from an article on another website and not directly from Sonos.

It is a good start for a long wished feature but ideally we would play directly from the pocket cast app like in Spotify or make the filters visible in sonos. To just play one single episode at the time was already possible. The advantage of such a podcast agregator is also that you can generate playlists that automatically add new episodes and removed played ones and where you can play from the oldest to the newest. I believe this is the feature most podcast subscribers want.

Thanks Ryan S, very excited to try this out today. Just a small addition for fellow readers/users, the beta services can be found behind the 'Visit Sonos Labs' button (at least on MacOS).

In the desktop controller, it's called Sonos Labs. The mobile controllers now are using a tag calling out Beta.

Thanks .. think I just beat you to it with my earlier posting ... but that didn't tell how to enable it.
You absolutely did beat me.

Hi everyone,

Pocket Casts just entered our Sonos music service beta program. You can now find and add the service to your Sonos systems by going to Add Music Services and find it under the list of beta services.

If you're not seeing it there, make sure you check for software updates and get the latest version of Sonos.
+1; syncing podcasts across devices is even more important than syncing music services in my mind. So this would be a great addition. Pocketcasts already has a solid offering across all mobile devices; they seem like a great podcasting source to add/partner with.

Alternatively—of course—AirPlay and/or Chrome cast integration would mitigate 85% of problems as well.
+1 I struggle with podcasts on my Sonos too. I love pocket casts for Android. The material design is spot on and the experience is top notch. I could get used to a Spotify type listening integration for pocket casts so I can just launch the audio on my Sonos from pocket casts.

Thanks!
I'd love this two. It's the main reason I still have Chromecast Audio in every room.
100% of my media consumption on the go is done through the Pocket Casts app. Having my podcasts at home on my Sonos devices would be great.

Pocket Casts handle my subscriptions from podcast directories but also from stand-alone RSS feeds and can't be replicated in Sticher or Podcasts App (Apple) to my knowledge.
Yes! I would LOVE to be able to send my Audi to Sonos from the pocket cast app. By far the best podcast app out there
A thousand times yes. Pocket Casts sync would be great.

Please please add integration with Pocket Casts. I currently have just the soundbar for my TV, but might consider switching over to Vizio for the whole house... Pocket Casts to Google Cast works for that, and it will seriously sway my decision.
Hello,
I Ärger to msartoris. The Podcast Integration is a crap. I have a tvbar and this will be The only device i Buy from Sonos.
For the different Other speakers i Plan to Use AirPlay by apple


Well, have fun with all the dropouts!

Policy? Sonos welcomes all comers. You need to have the Pocket folks sign up as a Mu SD ic Partner and start integrating. Up to them, Sonos is ready, and willing.

I recently bought two Sonos speakers, but when I realised that Pocket Casts is not supported, I returned them. Please, add the Pocket Casts source. What is retaining you? I am pretty sure that the Pocket Casts folks are willing to collaborate. I really don't understand this policy...
Please add Pocket Cast from shifty jelly
Please add PocketCasts to Sonos. I would love to be able to pick up listening to the podcasts where I left off on my iPhone.
Please Sonos, add Pocket Casts as a service since it is the best podcast app for Android. All other services are missing à lot of podcasts I listen.

I have never been able to use a universal, easy and elegant way to listen to all my podcasts using Sonos. I use TuneIn Radio for some podcasts. For the other one, not available on TuneIn Radio, I download them from Pocket Casts on my phone but Sonos can access them only if I reboot the phone and if all previous shows are deleted. Even then, some podcasts are not sorted in their proper folder (just the general "podcast" folder), show names are and the titles are just some weird string of alphanumeric characters!

Any suggestion for a more elegant way to listen to all my podcasts and solve these issues?

+1 from a new Sonos user.

+1. Additionally Sonos could be more competitive with Google Cast if they integrated directly so any content casted from an app which supports Chromecast could be played on a Sonos speaker.
