Player FM boldly goes where no app has gone before, in 2018

First of all, Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had an awesome time during the holidays, and may all your wishes come true. We had a nice week off, fueled up our bellies and now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work, with one goal in mind — to make your podcast listening experience even better.

2018 has just arrived and Player FM continues to be one of the best podcast apps in the world of Android. In fact, in article on TNW, Player FM is listed as one of the 30 best Android apps of 2017:

“Player FM’s podcast player has been around for a while now, but it recently got a bunch of great new features with the launch of version 4 in November, as it inches closer towards offering a premium experience with a paid subscription.”

We’re so honored by this, and all we can say is a big “thank you” for recognizing our hard work over the years. Of course, huge thanks as well for the support and feedback from all our users — that definitely helped us move forward. Rest assured we won’t stop making the app even better for you.

Brace yourselves now, as we are about to share a little glimpse of what you can expect this year. Consider this our New Year’s resolution!

Settings sync

Display settings, playback settings, etc. — Yep, they’re about to be synced across devices and on the web soon! That’s a major revamp on our premium memberships’ cloud sync feature, which at present, syncs bookmarks, playlists, play history, playback position and many others. If you have another phone or tablet, simply log in to your account and leave the rest to us.

Themes sync

We value your custom themes, and we want you to keep them even when you use your other devices to listen to podcasts. That’s why here’s one good news: Custom themes will soon be cloud-synced, too!

That’s all we want to share for now and we will keep the rest a secret (until further notice). 🙂

One more thing — due to the increasing interest in our premium plans, we decided to give you a chance to unleash the full potential of our app free of charge, for 7 days. We will share more details very soon.

We’re looking forward to another exciting year with you. And, as stated on many occasions, whenever you need our help, and whenever you have suggestions to share, we’re just a message away.
