[Android Auto] Show Podcast in Menu

It would be nice if the podcasts menu item would be directly accessible from Android Auto.
At the moment I have to start a podcast beforehand to connecting the phone. After connecting there seems no chance to start podcasts.

Any updates on this? This is a must!! Only reason I chose Spotify over google play music were the podcasts and I can't listen to them in my car...

Please fix. I love Spotify however, I want a one stop solution for my listening entertainment needs. I do not want to cancel my family share plan and go with Google Music. Please help me stay with you as a long term satisfied customer. Please add podcast navigation category to Android auto so your dedicated premium customers can utilize the Android auto interface to select and listen to our podcasts. Thank you.

Really. Please do this. Otherwise I'll use my phone while driving and defeat the safety feature of android auto...

Please fix this. Listening to podcasts in the car is the ideally place to catch up on episodes. The lack of this basic feature really devalues the usefulness of Spotify to me. I will consider cancelling my subscription and moving to another product if they offer this feature. It's that important.

With the prevalence of the podcasts using Spotify as a core means of distribution this is a huge reason for me to continue using the Spotify app. I currently use Stitcher as it's the only major podcast app that has Android Auto functionality... but it's  full of glitches and I would much prefer to access my podcasts via my premium spotify account.
