    Crazy Idea: Support Wear OS!

    Yes, I know "nobody" uses this feature according to your stats, but I want the team to know that I am a living, breathing "nobody" who really appreciated this feature and felt it was a differentiator. I know it's not for most of your audience, and therefore not worth your time in maintaining the code. But I just want you to know that these tough, calculated business decisions affect real people. People who used to drive safer by using their watch to launch or navigate podcasts instead of having to pick up, unlock and manipuate their phone (while maybe driving).

    Also, me paying for BeyondPod for a specific set of features that fit my needs only to then have these features unceremoniously removed because of demographics seems kinda not-great from the customer experience POV.

    Just sayin'.
    Thx.

    FYI - I've downgraded to .18 to bring back this feature. I hope that this version works when my phone gets upgraded to 8.1!

    Has the team reconsidered supporting WearOS? I've been a paying BeyondPod customer for a while and recently got a smartwatch that I'd love to be able to use more effectively with BeyondPod. I'm fine with paying extra for a WearOS version. Sadly if support isn't coming back I'll have to consider searching for a new podcast app.

    At the very least you should remove mention of Android Wear support from the web site as it's false advertising to claim a feature that doesn't exist. Thanks.

    Samsung galaxy watch support would be nice too. Right now there is noway to launch BP from an off state. Just the default player controls when the app is running.
