Outcast 4

Thanks for using Outcast! This update brings three big new features to the app:

STREAMING

You can now stream podcast episodes, even while Outcast is in the background! By default, a podcast's episodes list will now display a play button, which will stream the episode. You can still download the episode from the episode details screen, and you can change that button back to a download button instead.

SIRI

You can now use Siri to start playback directly on your Apple Watch. For example, you can say "Play Planet Money in Outcast". This will find the latest episode and begin streaming it.

DEVICE INDEPENDENCE

Outcast has full support for device independence, which means you can download it from the new Apple Watch App Store.

OTHER

We've also add a number of other improvements to app. Thank you to all of our testers for giving us feedback. You can give us suggestions or feedback at support@outcast.app.
