For all of the podcast bingers out there, this is the answer to your podcasting prayers! Our interface updates make it clear where exactly you were on a podcast series and mean one less thing to remember. That way you are always on the right track with your listening plan.
What does the new setup look like? Whether you are an Android user or an iOS user, the graphics are very similar, but just so that you know what to expect, we have created some graphics and a more detailed explanation.
Stay up to date
If you’re someone who listens to an episode and realizes in five minutes that you’ve already heard it, this won’t happen anymore! From now on there will be a handy yellow check mark next to an episode title if you’ve already listened to it. If you click on the episode you can see the exact date that you are tuned for.
Always finish what you start
However, if you have been known for never finishing something you start, don’t worry, we have your back. We added on a line that tells how many minutes left to listen and instead of being completely yellow it will fill a percentage of the circle that matches the amount you have left to hear.
Spreaker Podcast Radio gives you all the features that allow you to have complete control of your podcast listening experience to be simple, intuitive and completely personalized by you.

Reverse the order from front to back
Spreaker Podcast Radio lets you change the episode order of a podcast from oldest to newest to more closely follow the narrative thread. You can listen to real crime podcasts and audiobooks as they should be experienced from the first episode, even if they already have six episodes in the program. Reversing the episode order can also help when listening to regular talk podcasts – follow your favorite host’s creative development (and get all the inside jokes, after all). You can reverse the episode order of any podcast in its info area.
Think fast or slow
However, sometimes in a cyclone you are totally wrinkled for time. In other cases, you’ve hit the jackpot on the niche of niche podcasts on your favorite topic, but the host is just … so … slow … and in other cases, you’re still hearing a special guest on your favorite podcast that I just can do not stand back or take a breath.
In all of these cases, manipulating the playback speed settings is the best option you have.
You can adjust the playback speed by going to the episode view and tapping OPTIONS under the search bar (on iOS, you can also tap the settings icon in the top right corner on Android). Tap and drag the yellow dot to get the speed you want.
Sleep it off
Finally, there’s the sleep timer, a great feature if you like to fall asleep on podcasts before bed or nod off during the long walk home. The timer will automatically turn off the episode you are listening to after the specified time (this way you won’t drain the battery unnecessarily). So if you already have the feeling that you will be asleep in about five minutes, tap on “+ 5 minutes”. To set it to fifteen minutes, you can tap “+ 15 minutes” or “+ 5 minutes” three times.
