A Great Playback Experience

With multiple playback speeds, smooth seeking, and episode queueing.

iTunes Store Integration

Search across and browse the most popular podcast directory in the world.

Custom Skip Intervals

Your time is valuable, so Vocal lets you set custom time intervals for the skip forward and backward buttons (so you can catch something you missed a few seconds ago, or jump forward a few minutes to breeze past an advertisement).

Smart Library Management

Never worry about old downloads filling up your device! Vocal periodically cleans your library so the freshest content is always available, while also keeping the cruft out.

Position Saving

Vocal remembers exactly where you were in each episode, so it can start back right where you left off.

Light and Dark Themes

Switch between light and dark themes depending on your mood or to prevent eye strain.

Full System Integration

With native notifications, system media keys, and sound menu integration, Vocal feels right at home in most modern Linux distributions.

Fully Adaptive

By using the latest GTK and libadwaita features, Vocal can seamlessly adapt from the largest screen down to the one you keep in your pocket.

Keep in Sync

Vocal now syncs with gpodder.net, so you can keep your library in sync between multiple devices and apps.

And much more...

Try it for yourself to see what all Vocal has to offer.
