Google-owned video streaming platform YouTube has announced to increase its investment in the podcast experience on YouTube Music. The company plans to bring Podcasts on YouTube Music globally by the end of the year.

The tech giant Google is also planning to discontinue Google Podcast by the end of 2024

Google said in a blog that it would help Google Podcasts users move over to Podcasts in YouTube Music. In the coming weeks, Google will gather feedback on the migration process from Google Podcasts to YouTube Music, as it will be simple and easy as possible.

Google also said that would release the guidelines once they feel the migration tools are ready. 

Earlier this year, the company launched the watch and listen to podcasts on YouTube Music in the US, without paid membership.

Podcasts on YouTube Music is already available in the US, and one can play in places like the car and on smart speakers with options to switch between audio and video podcasts.

"We want to ensure a smooth transition and will offer ample time for fans and podcasters to make the switch. For users, this entails a user-friendly migration tool and the capability to incorporate podcast RSS feeds into their YouTube Music library, even for shows not presently hosted on YouTube," the company stated in a blog.

As of now, "there will be no immediate changes," and fans will have access to  YouTube Music and Google Podcasts," the company said.
