What’s the difference between Google Podcasts and Google Play Podcasts?
Google Podcasts is a stand-alone app that indexes all the podcasts in the world. It’s available worldwide and it will add most podcasts automatically. On the other hand, Google Play Podcasts is the podcasting portion of the Google Play Music app. The selection is a bit smaller since podcasters have to submit their podcast to Google Play.
