Before we dive into getting your podcast onto the Google Play store, pull up your RSS feed into your browser and ensure it contains the following elements:
1. Your podcast’s title. In code, this is written as <title> You can add this tag in your Podcast Settings page
2. Authorship. You’ll see this written as <itunes:author> or <googleplay:author>. You can add this tag in your Public Profile Settings page under "Name".
3. Description or summary tags, such as <description> <googleplay:description> or <itunes:summary>. You can add this tag in your Podcast Settings page.
4. A public email address in your RSS feed. This will be displayed as <itunes:email> or <googleplay:email>. To add this email tag, go into your Podcast Settings page and click on the "iTunes" tab and then click "Advanced" settings where you'll see the option to input an email.
Once you confirm these elements, you’re ready to submit your feed onto the Google Play store:
From the podcast page of the Google Play Music store, click on "Get Started"
Once on the next page, click on "Submit Feed".
You’ll be directed to an RSS submittal page. Paste in your RSS feed URL, and click 'Submit RSS Feed".

Your podcast will then be sent to Google for review. After approval, it will be available in the Google Play Music store!
