Listening to audio on the Patreon app

  • Updated

The Patreon mobile app offers a range of features that can take your listening experience to the next level. Download the app and tap on the Play tab to start listening to the latest from your memberships or pick up where you left off.


Play tab

The Play tab is where you can find all audio posts, audio downloads, and audio purchases for easy listening on the go. There are three different sections within the Play tab:

  • Up Next: All available audio posts listed in chronological order by date posted
  • Downloads: Audio posts that you have downloaded within the app appear in this tab
  • Purchases: Audio products purchased from a creator’s shop appear in this tab

You can use the filter menu at the top right corner to toggle between different play states (In Progress, Unplayed, and Played).

If you want to download a post for offline listening, view the creator’s Patreon, share a post, or copy a link to an episode, click the three dots next to the post to bring up a drop-down menu containing these options.

Tap the play button next to an audio post to start listening. You can minimize the player if you’d like to listen to your audio while doing other things in the app.


Audio Player controls

There are several ways you can interact with our podcast player to enhance your listening experience:

  • Resume listening: When you pause the player in the app and come back, your position is saved so you can resume playback right where you left off
  • Skip forward and back: By tapping on the forward or backward skip button, you can easily skip ahead or go back in 15-second intervals
  • Adjust the audio scrubber: You can move the playback position forward or backward by dragging the slider left or right or by tapping on a specific point on the timeline of the audio
  • Adjust playback speed: The Patreon podcast player offers different playback speeds (0.5x to 2x), allowing you to adjust the speed to your liking
  • Casting Audio from a mobile device: You can cast audio using iOS Airplay if you’re on an Apple device, or Chromecast if you’re using Android. If there are no compatible devices nearby, the cast option is grayed out.
  • Sleep timer: You can set a timer for the audio file to stop playing after a set amount of time
