Apple has made it possible to listen to Apple Podcasts on the web. The Movies and TV show web interfaces have also been updated (via Mac Generation).

It looks like it might not be available yet for people in the U.S., and the website that broke this story is based in France. The screenshot I provided is of the iOS Podcasts app. I’m currently going iPad-only for a review and my Mac isn’t available.

Apple Podcasts Web Player

Apple is slowly killing off iTunes, with the company bringing iOS TV, Music, and Podcasts to macOS via Marzipan. That death includes overhauling each app’s web interface.

Apple Podcasts on the web offers a similar experience to the app. Episode titles are featured in bold, with a description below. Each episode also has an individual page, where you can see full show notes and other details.

Although there is a prominent button telling you to listen in iTunes, a noteworthy aspect of the new design is that URLs now use podcasts.apple.com, instead of the old itunes.apple.com.

See for yourself how it looks on the Mac.

Now all we need is an official Apple Music web player (there are plenty of unofficial ones).
