“Shuffle the decks” Android update: Rearrange downloads manually, receive personalized podcast recommendations via email, enjoy new system themes, bug fixes + more

Hello world – we are back! Actually, we went nowhere, as we’ve been working hard on making your podcast experience better and smarter.

Before the show begins, we would like to wholeheartedly thank the Phandroid.com team for considering our app as one of the best podcast apps for Android in 2018.

Now, here is the rundown.

Rearrange downloaded episodes manually

Are you a rule breaker and chance taker who wants downloads served your way? You now have the option to arrange them yourself! Shuffle the deck, split the cards however you like, and start playing. The rearrangement works the same way as in Play Later.

Receive podcast recommendations via email

Are you new in the sea of podcasts, GPS not fully online, and just don’t know where to start? Let Player FM be your helping hand. You can now receive personalized podcast recommendations by email. Discover the trending-est episodes among your subscriptions and interests. You can enable this option in your Android app (Settings > Connection and Account) or the web app as you wish.

New system themes

The world isn’t black and white. In this update, we pay tribute to all the colors in the rainbow with new themes to color your podcast life. Make it as red as passion, as blue as the oceans, as green as the jungles, as orange as the tigers or if you are a night bird, as dark as midnight – up to you! As you may know, themes and the theme editor are part of the new premium plans, but we know not everyone wants a red interface to begin with, so now we’ve added some more color options for all users. You’ll also find themes easier to access now, straight from the top-right of Settings.

More updates include:

  • further improved ‘Podcast of the day’ notification
  • performance updates for a smoother and smarter podcast experience

That’s all for now, but we won’t stop! If you have other suggestions, feel free to let us know.
