The great podcast player Castro has received a big update for users to harness the Siri Shortcuts.
If you’re not familiar with Siri Shortcuts, the feature allows you to interact with different apps with just a voice command on your IPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
So now, you can accomplish a number of tasks without needing to open the app beforehand. For example, you can ask Siri to play a show, play the new, and play something from any category.
You can also add episodes to the queue ad control playback with a voice command.
There are also many more you can take advantage of.
Castro is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
You can take advantage of a one-week free trial of Castro Plus. After that, it will cost $18.99 yearly.
That subscription offers a number of more advanced features. Some of those include the ability to trim silence, set a start position for episodes of each podcast, skip or select chapters in certain podcasts, and custom app icons.
