This is a must-have feature for many podcast fanatics, so we’re pleased to announce that you can now add episodes to your queue and enjoy continuous playback.

Fountain now supports Apple CarPlay so all you iOS users can enjoy your podcasts while you’re on the road. Simply connect your device to your car via USB or Bluetooth and start navigating your Fountain podcast library and your queue using your car’s in-built controls.
Android Auto is in the final stages of testing and will be released very soon.
