Google Podcasts launched an iOS back in March, giving Apple users a way to listen to the likes of Dolly Parton’s America or The Engadget Podcast (wink). Today it’s getting its first update which, among the usual performance-improving bug fixes, includes support for CarPlay.

As you’d expect, this makes it easier to use the app while you’re driving, with a pared-back interface, large controls and easy access to your subscriptions. The app itself is pretty streamlined anyway, with just three tabs: Home, Explore and Activity.

Creating an iOS version of Google Podcasts was an interesting move in the first place, since Apple users already have a built-in podcast app, but it’s certainly helpful to those that use multiple platforms, so adding support for CarPlay is the next logical development.
