Dark Mode on Android Q
Don’t be afraid of the dark. The new dark mode of Android Q now provides two additional tabs in Theme Switcher which provides access to both the light and dark mode themes. When you choose Dark mode on your device, Player FM for Android will automatically switch to its own dark theme. You can stay on your device without the eye strain of adapting to different themes.
Support for Android Q
Player FM for Android now supports the latest Android Q. This means you may still continue using your favorite app with the new Android 10. You can enjoy your podcasts and stay integrated with the latest in Android Q technology, which means you can learn and have fun at the same time.
Get better series recommendations
Discover more podcasts that may interest you. The improved recommendation function relates to the podcasts you have already accessed. No need to struggle through and search the next podcast to listen to. Just tap the next one suggested. All you do is open the series details screens, on Player FM for Android, and it will intelligently suggest a series for you.
More device support
Your device could well have 64-bit hardware because you have just done an upgrade, and you still want to listen to podcasts using the Player FM Android app. Recently there has been added support for a 64-bit device so you’ll get faster and richer experiences using the app.
Related series tab
Search is continuously being improved and part of this is the new Related section which will provide you related topics and list new series for your use. You only have to tap through to the last tab when the search results appear to get more podcast suggestions that may interest you.
We hope you’ll enjoy the new features for this release, and we’ll continue to improve the app to give you an even better podcast app.
