Superior iOS podcast app Overcast has issued a new 3.1 update, allowing users to send individual podcasts to their Apple Watch to listen to when they’re not in the immediate vicinity of their iPhone.
This is something that can’t be done with Apple’s official Podcasts app, even though users can send audio files from the iOS Music app.
If you’re someone who enjoys listening to podcasts, and who goes out jogging or does some other form of exercise that isn’t necessarily convenient to carry your iPhone, it’s an important update that’s going to be warmly received by users.
To access the feature, go to the Queue Menu on the iOS app, and then choose the “Send to Watch” option. Any pending transfers will appear on the Downloads screen. There’s the option to transfer several podcasts at once.
Overcast is available to download for free, although you can pay to remove ads and add additional minor features for a $9.99 subscription. (In the latest update, that subscription also adds an extra dark theme icon — if that’s something that’s likely to be important to you!)
