Player FM version 2.7 Hits Google Play Store

Player FM 2.7 is now in the store with some user-interface updates that should make listening to your favorite podcast shows more enjoyable. Thanks for your feedback and suggestions that helped us to build these features and polish them for release.

Widget Personalization: Resizable, Customisable, Material Homescreen Widget

You can now resize (limited to 4×1, 3×1, 2×1, 1×1) the Player FM widget on your android homescreen.

When you add the widget, there’s now a customisation dialog with the option to choose between light (the new material theme) or dark theme (the original, Holo-inspired, style), and between semi-transparent dark background or round corners with inset thumbnails. A lot of detail here, but we know how much widget installers like to customise their home-screens! Plus there’s a lot of themes out there demanding different kinds of widgets.

Episode Listings update

Episode listings have been redesigned with a cleaner look – a bigger font without losing the amount of content being shown. Play buttons now indicate downloaded state – solid red for downloaded episodes and open gray for those that will stream from the cloud. There’s also a new overflow menu, making it easy to mark as played, share, and so on.

Links to Series and Episodes

Series and episodes now come with detailed links dialogs, which can help you share and download exactly what you want, as well as getting more . You can also use the links to download raw episode files and even share it with friends.

Discover is More Personalised and Better Organised

You can now follow your favorite topics and check out new shows every day with a smarter, more personalised and better organised Discover feature.

Auto-Detection of Downloaded Episode Duration

The new auto-detect feature allows you to see the length of downloaded episodes, in cases where the publisher omitted it.

Performance Improvements and Bug Fixes

Plaver FM version 2.7 include bug fixes and performance improvements aimed at making the app snappier and even more intuitive. In particular, you’ll find the play/pause button more responsive as we were able to defer some activities that were blocking it, such as logging.
