The Overcast Podcast app for Apple Watch has been updated with improved episode sync and the ability to stream over Wi-Fi and cellular.

The changes were announced on Twitter today:

Latest update improves how episodes sync to Apple Watch for standalone playback.
Old way: phone transferred episodes slowly over Bluetooth when Watch was charging.
New way: Watch now downloads episodes directly over Wi-Fi when charging, or streams ( ) over Wi-Fi or cellular!


Downsides:
- after the update, everything needs to be redownloaded
- Smart Speed and Voice Boost are no longer baked in, but your speed settings still apply

Upsides:
- WAY more reliable
- Streaming now available
- Saves significant battery usage on your phone

You can download Overcast from the App Store for free.
