The popular Pocket Casts podcast listening app is now free
Despite the transition to a free model, all existing functions of Pocket Casts remain, including control of the playback speed, download for listening offline and three themes. In addition, the developers of the application assure that they will continue additional functions in the free version.
Developers will continue to make money on the service through a Pocket Casts Plus subscription, which will be available with a monthly or annual rate. Subscribers will have access to desktop versions of the application (macOS, Windows and the web version), cloud storage, as well as exclusive themes.
The subscription price is 75 rubles per month or 799 rubles per year. Users who previously purchased a desktop version of the application will receive three free years of Pocket Casts Plus.
