Spotify has announced that users can now play and control podcasts through their Google Assistant-capable device.

Rolling out worldwide but in English only, this should work on any Assistant-enabled smart speaker and smart display, such as the Nest Audio and Nest Mini speakers.

To begin listening, you just have to start off with the usual ‘Ok Google, play…’, followed by the name of the podcast. Of course, this assumes you’ve already linked Spotify to Google Assistant.

Also, if you’ve started listening to an episode on your phone while on the go, you can pick up where you left off on the smart speaker or display when you reach home.
