Finally: Offline podcasts are available on Apple Watch, thanks to Overcast

Up to now, you could not switch offline podcasts to your Apple Watch to pay attention later while you have been and not using a connection. Now, App Advice reports that the most recent Overcast update permits you to ship podcasts to your Apple Watch with only a faucet of a button after you could have downloaded episodes to your iPhone.

This is how to switch episodes to your Apple Watch:

  1. Release Overcast out of your iPhone's House display.
  2. In finding the downloaded episode you wish to have to switch.
  3. Faucet the Queue menu button (seems like ⁺≡).
  4. Faucet Ship to Watch.

It is that straightforward. Pending transfers will seem on the Downloads display. It will take a minute or two for the episode to hit your watch, so simply be affected person.

App Recommendation's Bryan M. Wolfe spotted slightly of a quirk in that your play state does not sync again to your iPhone, so you'll be able to't pick out up the place you left off as seamlessly, however long run Overcast updates will more than likely repair that.

This update is on the heels of Apple's rebranding of the Podcasts app as "Apple Podcasts", which nonetheless can not switch offline podcast episodes to Apple Watch. Whether or not this implies updates (like offline Apple Watch functions) are coming to the app itself or now not, who is aware of.
