    Users will no longer have to download iTunes to listen to Apple's podcast episodes with the company now allowing them to play these directly from its website.

    A podcast is an episodic series of digital audio or video files, which can be downloaded for listening.

    Apple's redesigned webpage for podcasts features a built-in web playback feature and a streamlined design which is easier to navigate, MacRumors reported on Wednesday.

    Each new page features a clear recap of each episode along with a "play" button.

    Clicking on an episode's name would open up a full page for episodes, showing complete details about their content to help a user decide what to listen to, the report said.

    The prior design for podcasts on the web was just a list of episodes that redirected users to iTunes with no web playback option available.

    The iPhone-maker is now planning to bring a standalone podcasts app with the launch of macOS 10.15, the report noted.
