Podcasts are the kind of thing most of us have heard of, even if we don’t listen. Many of the most popular things to listen to can only be found as a podcast.

Ever since they have become more mainstream there have been countless apps meant to help us find and listen, but not all of them are easy to understand. Google has been down this road before, and is trying once again.

They have released an app that is named, simply, “Google Podcasts,” and it is a great option for Android users who want to dive into podcasts but want to avoid any confusion. It’s light on bells and whistles but if you are only interested in listening to shows, it’s not a bad option.

Here’s how to use it

First off, keep in mind the app only works for Android. As for getting started, you’ll need to go into the Play Store and download it. Just search for “Google Podcasts” and, once you find it, download it as you would any other app.

Once downloaded, the icon will show up on your home screen. Tap on it to open.

The first screen you see will be a home page that shows icons for what Google is saying are the top or trending podcasts. The shows can have all sorts of themes — it really depends on what everyone else is listening to at the time.

And, if you are seeking a specific podcast, click on the magnifying glass in the upper left-hand corner to open a search bar. Just type in the name and find it.
