It makes sense with a smartphone to listen to lots of audio content. Audio content for many users isn’t limited to music though. Podcasts are a big thing for many smartphone users and Google has unveiled a way to find even more podcasts to enjoy from your Android device.

Google has announced Google Listen, described as an audio search engine and it acts as a podcast manager. Using the app, you can subscribe to audio feeds and download new content over the air. The app has its own search bar where you can enter a term for a type of podcast you are looking for.

Once the term is entered, the app will find podcasts that relate to the search term and rank them in order of relevance. Once you find the podcast you are looking for, it can be streamed immediately and you can play multiple podcasts from a queue to create a digital magazine. The app can be downloaded now at the link below.
