Mark as Played Broken

Status: Fixed

Free Account


Samsung Galaxy S9

Android 10


I can no longer mark podcasts as played. Nothing happens on any page where that is an option: library, episode, podcast pages. No "played" marking. I've only noticed this today. Tried clearing cache, stopping app, and reinstalling app. Issue still happens.


Edit 03/17/20: Update fixed it! @Katerina

Exact same issue, only on Galaxy S8 and premium account

Same here. I'm on premium. Tried restarting, uninstall, logging out and then back in.

'Check mark' and menu option to mark podcast episodes as played do not work.
Tried clearing cache/memory, reinstall app, log out/in...nothing resolves this.

The work around I use is to download the new podcast episodes and just use the 'downloads' list to access and remove episodes, instead of scrolling through irrelevant data.
Same issue here, Mate 20 Pro. Tried uninstalling, and no luck.

Same issue. I just skipped to the end of the episode(s) so it(they) didn't show up but curious as to why this isn't working anymore.


Premium Android.

My mark as played has been non functional for a few days now, it doesn't clear out of my Podcast Episodes list at all, new or in progress.
