Overcast Updated With Clip Sharing →

The newest version of Overcast has a really nifty new feature, as explained by Marco Arment:

With today’s 2019.4 update, you can now share audio or video clips, up to a minute each, from any public podcast. Simply tap the share button in the upper-right corner.

You can generate an audio clip, or portrait, landscape, or square video, using your current Overcast theme setting.

Somewhat embarrassingly, I seem to have accidentally inspired this feature in an interview on Unco. Marco just popped up in a Slack private message with some screenshots, and I was really impressed at how well thought-out this feature is. It’s going to be a great addition to Overcast, and a really nice way to make podcasts more shareable.
