Whenever the feature is ready, it could be very useful whether you listen on your phone or an Assistant speaker like the Nest Audio. If you sync all your podcast listening in one app, this could keep your syncing intact no matter how you prefer to listen. Moreover, services like Spotify have exclusive podcasts that simply aren’t accessible if you rely on Assistant to reach them quickly. This opens the door to playing what you want without having to launch an app on your phone.
