New BETA build is available!
Latest BETA build version: 4.0.22, Your Version: 3.1.20
This is a Development BETA build! It contains new features and bug fixes that we are planning for the next public release.
We try to keep our BETA builds as stable as possible (this is what we use daily in our personal devices). Keep in mind that not all features are completely tested yet and some unexpected results or crashes may still occur! We recommend that you always do a backup of your feeds and settings (BeyondPod Settings > Backup and Restore > Backup) before installing the beta - just in case you want to go back to the previous version.

What is new in this version
  • Improved handling of show notes. You can now access the full show notes from both "My Episodes" and "All Published" screens. (Full show notes will be automatically available for any new episode you download. For existing episodes, we will try to fill in the full show notes during the next feed update).
  • We changed the way we display the player "playing" and "paused" notification to better comply with Google guidelines for media players. BeyondPod now behaves in a similar way as Google Play Music - e.g. play/pause notification shows only if the main application screen is not active and, and hides when you pause playback. If you want to keep the paused notification visible at all times, you can enable that in BeyodnPod's Advanced Settings > Keep Player Paused Notification.
  • Exposed Volume Boost as a normal feed setting (there is no longer need for the "User Name" hack). This is now available for both normal and virtual feeds. Volume Boost allows you to add an extra "boost" to the volume when playing episodes of a particular feed and is available in the Feed settings. (Volume Boost relies on the Playback Speed player, so playback speed must be enabled in order for volume boost to work.)
  • Small changes to the full-screen player and car mode.
  • Several small improvements to BeyondPod's Chromecast support to better comply with Google's Chromecast guidelines
  • Many bug Fixes.

How to install the latest BETA
  • For now just download and install the .apk file linked below directly to your device. (We will publish it to the BETA channel of Google Play over the next few weeks.)
  • BeyondPod 4.0 comes as a single version that runs equally well on both phones and tablets (requires Android 4.0 or later). If you currently have the tablet version, we recommend that you un-install it before switching to 4.0. Find out more....
  • The new (4.0) version of BeyondPod has changed quite a bit. Here are some tips on how to make the transition easier.
