Pocket Casts is one of the main applications for consuming podcasts on the market today. Learn how to use it on Linux in an uncomplicated way.
Podcasts are increasingly popular here in Brazil, and large companies are supporting this content format, as Spotify. There are several ways to consume podcasts, and Pocket Casts is one of the main applications for this purpose.
Available for free for Android and iOS, Pocket Casts also has a desktop version, but the same one pays, with a value of 1 dollar per month or 10 dollars per year, through the subscription of Pocket Casts Plus. Currently, Pocket Casts officially has versions for Windows, MacOS and the web, and in this post we will show you two ways to use the service on the penguin platform.
The first way is probably the most obvious and simplest. We have talked about webapps here several times, and this time it will be no different.
As Pocket Casts is available through the web, it is possible to listen directly from the browser, or by creating a webapp using Chrome itself (which has the possibility to control the media via the keyboard) or other services such as Nativefier or Ice.
The second way using an unofficial application, created by Ricardo Feliciano (not our writer) and made available on Github. This application is available through the snap and .deb packages, containing all the basic functionalities of the web version, and with a icon in the system tray, which allows you to pause, play, fast forward and rewind the content. Through Pocket Casts you can also hear the Diocast, our podcast extracted from the lives of Friday.
