Google announces that it will no longer support their native podcasting application, Google Listen.
If you are using the Listen app, you’ll still be able to listen to podcasts however after Novemeber 11, 2012 the search function will no longer work.
Google says because of the proliferation of podcasting apps available in their app store, Google Play, there is no need for their own app and essentially surrenders the podcasting market over to Apple, Zune and other large operating systems.
Does this make sense to you? What does it mean that Google has given up on podcasts?
Rob Walch and I discuss our initial reactions to the news. Let us know in the comments how you feel about this move.
