My current workflow for podcast episodes: “play later”, adds to queue, and I play through my queue which is ever growing.
This works more or less but it’s not ideal. I want functionality like YouTube where I have a playlist that I can play through and edit easily.
YouTube let’s me “add to watch later” which puts it in an organized playlist I can edit easily and watch at my leisure. It’s permanent and can’t be overwritten. I can play a new video without tampering with the playlist and I can also change the order of the playlist and delete videos after I’ve watched them.
I don’t want to use a third party app.
UPDATE: I'm experimenting with achieving this either using the "Listen Now" tab or the "Library" by deleting episodes as they come in (opposite approach I'm looking for, would rather add things I would like to listen to instead of remove the ones I don't want to listen to but this is the only solution I could find), I've also unsubscribed from a ton of shows to reduce the noise.
Articles sort've explain what the tabs do but nobody seems to be concerned with creating some a playlist which kind of perplexes me.
Example: 5 notifications of new podcasts and 1 sounds interesting (and I don't currently have time to listen) so I go in and add that podcast to my queue and get rid of the other notifications. This is how I do it on YouTube too (but there I can even categorize into different playlists too). The issue is that my queue has over 20 podcasts on it...so what if I want to restore my phone?
UPDATE 2: restore kept my podcasts queue! so they are "permanent" unless you overwrite etc.
