What You Should Know?

Currently, this functionality is limited to users within the United States. The tool’s global availability remains uncertain.

It’s important to note that not all podcasts will transition to YouTube Music seamlessly. In cases where a podcast is unavailable, a message stating “Content is unavailable” may appear. Google recommends saving such podcasts to your library using the show’s RSS feed link.

The end-of-life date for Google Podcasts is set by Google as of April 2, 2024, at least for users in the United States. While the global applicability of this date is unclear, it is my perspective that this end-of-life date is likely to affect all Google Podcasts users worldwide. As the situation evolves, it is essential to stay informed about any updates or changes in the service’s availability.
