The settings menu could have all types of choices to decide on whether or not or to not watch podcast movies or solely hearken to audio.

It seems like Google’s YouTube Music app on Android could have sleep timer choices for podcasts, too, which is nice for customers listening as they go to sleep. You’ll additionally be capable to choose to stream over Wi-Fi solely and some different issues. I’m not an enormous podcast listener, however I take advantage of YouTube Music, so hopefully, there’s a setting to cover podcasts from search outcomes.
