Ad questions

Hi there - I have tried lots of different podcast apps but I always come back to AntennaPod. Recently I have been battling with lots of ads, ads prior to the podcast starting and then ads inserted into the podcasts. I can usually skip forward 30 secs but I am often dog walking and covered in gloves, scarves, mud etc and so its difficult to skip forward often in this situation.

My understanding is AntennaPod does not add commercials, so I am not sure there is anything they can do, but are there any other suggestions to remove or skip ads in this situation?

For reference, I downloaded from Google Play Store and I am using Google Pixel 8 phone. I download rather than stream.

Hello, your only options is to set a skip time for intro and outro in the podcast specific settings.

If you listen using Bluetooth earbuds/phones with their own Play/Pause/Volume/Skip controls then that is an answer to the gloved problem for manual skipping. Look for ones with physical action controls rather than touch sensitive ones.

Thank you for the replies.

I generally listen with Google pixel bud pros, and there is a skip forward function. I didnt think much of it when I first got them, and forgot all about it. But trying againm after @gomezz reply, I think this is the answer. I need practice now! I have already fired my buds across the room, so I am not quite there yet…
