If your podcast addiction demands more time than your phone listening can feed, unshackle yourself with a Pocket Casts sync account.
Your account allows you to easily switch between devices so you can listen on your smart speaker at home, switch to listening in the car, and then pick up right where you left off at the office with no hassle… unless it’s the hassle of not being allowed to listen to podcasts at work in which case, you’re on your own with that one.
As an added bonus, if you get a new phone you can just log in to your Pocket Casts account on the fresh app installation and your account info will restore. Syncing securely stores your podcast subscriptions, episode play progress and archived state, your Up Next queue, listening stats and more, in the cloud.
How do I create an account?
To create a sync account on Android or iOS tap the Profile tab > Set Up Account > Create Account > follow the prompts from there.
You can create a free Regular account which allows you to sync across Android, iOS, Alexa, and Sonos, or you can create a Pocket Casts Plus account which does all of that, plus gives you access to and allows you to sync across Mac, Windows and web (among other features, that include a standalone Apple Watch app!).
For more detail on creating a sync account, or updating your existing Regular account to a Pocket Casts Plus account, check out our support pages for Android and iOS.
