Customise row action – Stream / Download

Episode rows come with a customisable button to ▶︎ stream or ⤓ download an episode with just one tap.

By default Pocket Casts is set to stream episodes – tap tap the ▶︎ Play button to get started.

To switch the app to download by default instead:

  1. Tap Profile
  2. Tap Settings
  3. Open General
  4. Change the Row action from Play to Download 

When in streaming mode, to download an episode manually:

  1. Tap on the episode row
  2. Tap the ⤓ Download button on the episode card

You can manually download the episodes you like individually or in bulk, or the app can be set to automatically download new episodes as they’re released.


Downloaded episode will also have a green   under the episode title.
