You can now find and listen to podcasts right from Google Search”

Similarly to how video, news, and image results appear in a separate area after conducting certain Search queries, so will podcast episodes.

Starting today, you can search for a particular term, and Google will return podcasts episodes based on it.

Google hints that it is offering a truce with podcast producers on this issue though.

Eventually, you'll also be able to find and listen to podcasts using Google Assistant. A Google spokesperson said it will soon be adding "the ability for publishers to specify a playback destination, such as a third-party website or app", so that "people can discover podcasts that may be exclusively available by purchase or subscription on third-party podcast providers". However, this functionality isn't present yet. You'll also be able to search for "Podcasts about "Topic" and find relevant search results which would be playable in full right from the Search results screen. The company said Thursday that it now lists episodes in search results that people can listen to directly from the page.

Podcasts are coming to Google search.

[Animation: courtesy of Google] Sites like Listen Notes and Audiosear.ch (until it shut down in 2017), among many other startups determined to crack podcast discovery, were created to solve this problem by aspiring to be the Google for podcasts.

Looking for a specific podcast has always been a straightforward process: Plug in the title or the host's name in an app store or search engine and you're golden.
