Last month, Apple reviewed the Apple Podcasts web interface with a modern design and web playback support. Today, Apple has made another small change to the web site and release the "Listen in iTunes" tag.
As first noted by Vox Media's Zach Kahn shows the Apple Podcasts Preview website now shows a "Listen in the Apple Podcasts" button and replaces the old "Listen in iTunes" -bransjen. Clicking the button will still open iTunes on Mac, but it's likely to change rather than later.
9to5Mac reported last month that the next major MacOS version, probably MacOS 10.15, will include a standalone Apple Podcast application. The Podcasts app is probably made with Marzipan, Apple's platform for porting iPad apps for Mac. This means that users of the Podcasts app on iOS will be familiar with the app for Mac.
Currently, podcast playback is buried in iTunes on macOS and lacks many of the features found in the Podcasts app on iOS. The new MacOS app will bring many of these features to the Mac in the end.
Apple will likely announce macOS 10.15 during its main speech at WWDC June 3, and publish a beta to developers that day. That's when we get our first detailed look at podcasts on Mac.
