About Pocket Casts sync
Syncing will securely store all of your podcast subscriptions in the cloud. As you play episodes, Pocket Casts will automatically sync your playback position to the cloud and any other device that you’re logged into Pocket Casts on. If you change something about an episode (archive it, star it, mark it as played, etc) we’ll sync that too. We’ll also keep track of your Up Next list, stats and Listening History.
If you get a new phone, simply sign back in and all of the above will be restored to your new device.
