Today I learned from a chat with the support that syncing the podcasts is NOT a thing right now!
Until today I thought that it was just not working but it’s not even implemented. I suggest strongly that this should be a thing.
Syncing progress and staus (not listened - listened) between mobile and desktop devices is crutial fora good podcast experience. Especially for longer podcasts!
I really hope this will be implemented soon.
