The company touts that “Continue Listening” is a feature that allows you to pick up right where you left off in your last podcast, every time you startup your car. In terms of discovery, iHeartRadio offers a “Podcast Topics” interface that lets you scroll through 18 different categories for topics that may interest you.

All of your podcasts in the iHeartRadio CarPlay app are stored under the “Your Podcasts” interface and update every time a new episode is released.

Expanding on CarPlay’s already user-friendly interface, this latest update introduces podcasts through a number of exciting new features. “Continue Listening” lets you resume your last podcast right where you left off, without even having to think.
