Automatically add to queue

App version: 3.0.2 (Google Play)

Problem you may be having, or feature you want: There’s a daily podcast that I listen to every morning while driving to work, using Android Auto. At the moment, I have to select the podcast and then the newest episode, which can be annoying and a little distracting while driving. Instead, in Android Auto, it’s much easier to play the queue (it’s just one touch). I would like a podcast setting that, as soon as a new episode for that podcast appears, automatically adds it to the queue.

I don’t download episodes, I always use streaming, and I’d like to keep it this way. Also I don’t use the Inbox feature (to be honest I’ve never quite understood its purpose), is it useful for my request?

Suggested solution: see above: “automatically add every new episode to the queue for this podcast” option (not just about every podcast I subscribe to, like the Inbox -I guess?-, it has to be set for each podcast individually)

But you could just select the option to “add downloaded episodes to the queue”

But why? You don’t save data whether you stream or download. No difference


It may be that there isn’t enough space available on the device to download the episodes hence why streaming is always used.

I can potentially see myself using such a feature if it existed.
