Plex has announced that its support for Podcasts has officially exited beta status. The company also highlighted some much requested additions.

● Offline support: No connectivity in your beach cabaña/ski chalet? No problem. It’s a piece of keto-cake to configure your favorite podcasts for offline listening. You can download single episodes with a single tap or set up a smart rule to make sure you have enough Joe Rogan to make it through that long flight to some country without an extradition treaty. We’re not judging.

● Come to the Plex Side: It’s now super easy to migrate your existing list of podcasts over to Plex, using our OPML (it’s pronounced “op-mul”) import feature (available on iOS, Android, or the web). There’s a pretty good chance your ex-favorite podcast app lets you export your feeds in this format, and you can now import them all into Plex in a single bound. Give it a shot!

● Everywhere you are: Well, maybe not everywhere, but you can now enjoy podcasts on those sweet-sounding Sonos speakers! And in the car—safely—with Android Auto! And you can now easily cast them to any Chromecast enabled device!
